New Pluralists

Director of Philanthropic Engagement
Location: Remote

New Pluralists Collaborative is a cross-ideological funder and field collaborative catalyzing pluralism in American culture. We believe the promise of pluralism is core to America realizing our founding ideals of liberty, equality, and justice. Pluralism makes it possible for us to live among, work with, and care about people who are different from us – including across race and ethnicity, faith, geography, socioeconomic status, and political affiliation. It enables us to navigate conflict as a natural part of a healthy and peaceful democracy. It invites us to come together to strengthen our communities and solve the challenges we face as citizens.

The work of living up to our founding ideals as a country has been unfinished, with hopeful steps forward alongside profound failures. We are growing increasingly segregated and polarized along class, racial, ethnic, religious, and ideological lines, and we are losing trust in each other and in the promise of participatory democracy. Research suggests that most Americans are exhausted with the current climate, and are hungry for different ways to come together, navigate conflicts both big and small, and solve problems.

As a key leader in our young, ambitious, and vibrant organization, the Director of Philanthropic Engagement will design and implement an effective and collaborative strategy that enables many types of funders and donors to value and join us in advancing pluralism. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director of Philanthropic Engagement will develop and implement the strategy that will enable New Pluralists to effectively raise the balance of our initial $100M goal ($40M+ raised to date) towards our New Pluralists pooled fund. The Director will also be (one of) the key architects for designing and implementing an ecosystem-wide, collaborative strategy to galvanize $1B of philanthropy for our broader and growing pluralism ecosystem. Both efforts will require creative, dynamic and impactful fundraising, strategic partnerships, and influence strategies that move more philanthropic interest, actions, and resources to New Pluralists and the pluralism ecosystem.
