Organization Description

About North Star Fund:
North Star Fund (NSF) is New York City’s community foundation working to create a more just and equitable city. For 37 years, North Star Fund has helped make democracy happen in New York City by building a diverse network of donor activists to support the grassroots leaders that move the City forward. North Star Fund helps these activists organize, gain visibility and influence, and pursue solutions to the greatest problems facing New York City. By raising funds for grassroots activism and distributing grants, North Star Fund puts resources into the hands of those directly impacted by injustice and provides long-term support that helps causes to become social movements.

With the bold goal of ensuring a future for activism in New York City, North Star Fund’s programs, fundraising, and communications efforts are currently organized to achieve three overarching goals:

Funding Victories
From delivering rapid response grants as an issue breaks to providing larger grants to the most impactful coalitions, North Star Fund gets resources in the hands of organizers and communities directly impacted by injustice. We devote half of the funds we raise for grants each year to new and emerging grassroots organizations on the frontlines of social change in their neighborhoods and communities. In recent years, North Star Fund’s Activism’s Future Campaign enables the organization to partner with the leaders, organizations, and coalitions the Fund supports at more steps in the evolution of their work. This includes grants through our Movement Leadership Program, our Power Together coalition grants, and our Innovative Activism grants. In collaboration with other like-minded foundations, we support grantees through technical assistance workshops such as strategic communications and fundraising trainings.

Being a Stronger Voice for Social Justice
North Star Fund has always been a resource for journalists, researchers, and philanthropists looking for the stories of grassroots activists and their impact on the world. In recent years, we have deepened our strategic communications efforts to get out local, social justice stories that are woefully under-reported by mainstream, corporate-owned media. By helping to gather, frame, and put forth a more nuanced and progressive perspective on the issues of the day, North Star Fund changes the conversation on timely issues resulting in coverage in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Daily News, Philanthropy News Digest, Chronicle of Philanthropy, Crain’s New York, Huffington Post, and CBS News.

Connecting with and Inspiring More Donor Activism
North Star Fund raises every dollar it grants. In our 2014 fiscal year, NSF granted just over $3.3M in grants to more than 80 grassroots organizations and coalitions. North Star Fund’s purpose has always been to practice strategic philanthropy in which donors and activists are engaged as partners in directing resources to advance the grassroots movement for equality, economic justice, and peace. North Star Fund’s growth is supported by generous donors who participate in timely, thought-provoking donor networking events and workshops, which connect them to grassroots work and help match their progressive values with their charitable giving. In the process, donors become an active part of building a New York City in which all people feel welcome and all communities have a voice.

North Star Fund was founded in 1978 in response to New York City’s move to disproportionately shrink services in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color as a result of the municipal fiscal crisis. Seeking a way to help local activists challenge the injustices of these cutbacks, Toby D’Oench, along with Martin Bunzl and 26 other young people of inherited wealth, began forging a new philanthropic model. North Star Fund was born. Influenced by the civil rights, women’s, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender, and anti-war movements, the founders pioneered the activist-led grantmaking model that remains a hallmark of North Star Fund’s approach.

Job Description

Deputy State Director
United Against Hate
MoveOn.org

Arizona – Florida – Iowa – Nevada – New Hampshire
North Carolina – Ohio – Pennsylvania

Non-negotiable salary $4,333 per month through November 30, 2016

Donald Trump is a dangerous bigot. And he’s neck and neck in the polls in the battleground states that will decide the presidential election. So are Republican Senators who've refused to stand up to his hateful campaign and whose elections will determine control of the Senate.

We will defeat Donald Trump and elect Hillary Clinton by recruiting, training, and supporting grassroots leaders in the communities that Trump has attacked. We know that face-to-face conversations with voters are the #1 most effective way to increase voter participation.

You’ll be part of a nimble team of field organizers and state directors in 8 battleground states who together will organize volunteer teams to knock on hundreds of thousands of doors and have conversations with enough voters to swing a close election–the presidential race, and, in many states, a Senate race, too.

With millions of members nationwide and an 18-year track record of winning electoral and progressive issue campaigns and breaking new digital and field organizing ground –and as the largest organization to endorse Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary– MoveOn is uniquely suited to influence the outcome of this election.

Unlike in most campaigns, we’re not running a paid canvass. We’re unleashing the phenomenal energy and smarts of volunteer leaders to canvass their own neighborhoods and communities, where they can make the biggest difference.

And we’re not stopping there. We know that our task is not just to win an election, but to demonstrate that bigotry is a losing strategy and to build power to win on the issues that matter to everyday people: income inequality, police and criminal justice reform, climate change, good jobs, immigrants’ rights, and more. Unlike candidate campaigns that shut down after Election Day, MoveOn.org organizes 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The leaders you develop will join a grassroots network that will organize to build power and win on issues after the election.

Deputy State Director
MoveOn is seeking highly motivated and goal-oriented deputy state directors to lead our campaign in battleground states to organize progressive voters to stop Donald Trump and elect Hillary Clinton president. We are running a voter identification and turnout program focused on progressive voters, built around volunteer-hosted and volunteer-run neighborhood door-to-door canvassing. Deputy State Directors are responsible for managing, motivating, and coaching a team of Campaign Organizers; representing the team with allies, partners, and the media; and meeting goals and deadlines. The Campaign Organizers you lead will organize “barnstorm” organizing tours of their turf, recruit volunteer canvass leaders at those events, and support hundreds of volunteer leaders over the course of 13 core canvassing days of action.

Responsibilities:
• Manage, coach, and support a team of high-performing campaign organizers in your region to meet ambitious goals and deadlines.
• Lead team trainings, huddles, conference calls, and meetings, virtually and in person.
• Build positive team culture.
• Report data for your team, ensure your team is reporting data impeccably using NGP VAN and soft reporting, and recommend and make adjustments based on analysis of the data.
• Work with Data Director, local partners, organizers, and volunteers to manage and assign canvassing turf for volunteers to canvass.
• Identify, build relationships with, and seek collaboration with local and state allies, including campaign surrogates, community leaders, and other notables in the state.
• Participate as a member of a state and national team, contributing to shared learning and mutual accountability.
• May recruit, train, and support volunteer leaders to lead neighborhood canvasses, setting the example for your team.

Required Experience:
• Minimum one election cycle as a staff manager or two years staff management in an issue or advocacy campaign environment
• Proven track record of organizing effective volunteer teams and leading effective trainings and organizing meetings
• Experience with voter databases such as NGP VAN
• Experience canvassing or leading canvasses
• Comfort, experience with, or eagerness to learn technology-based organizing tools such as Hustle, Zoom, Organizer, and ActionKit
• Valid driver's license, car insurance, and clean driving record

Skills, Characteristics, and Values:
• Acts with high integrity, professionalism, low ego, and camaraderie
• Attention to detail
• Commitment to recruiting diverse leadership and making visible the leadership of people most impacted by Trump’s campaign of bigotry
• Able to adapt to rapidly changing environment
• Self-motivated, driven, able to work nights, weekends, and long hours, and able to maintain work-life balance. We take a healthy workplace seriously and can accommodate flexible daytime schedules when evening work is required.
• Bilingual a plus

Location: Positions in Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania
