Full-Time Program Manager, GreenLight Fund Bay Area

GreenLight Fund – Posted by GreenLight Fund San Francisco, California, United States

Job Description

Organization Overview 

GreenLight Fund is a national nonprofit with a local focus that partners with communities to create opportunities for inclusive prosperity. 

Each year we facilitate a community-driven process that matches the local needs of individuals and families not met by existing programs, to organizations with track records of success elsewhere. Working with communities, we identify, invite in and launch proven organizations, providing collaborative support so they can quickly take root and deliver change. 

Everything we do is designed to remove barriers to inclusive prosperity all too often rooted in racial inequities. Our impact increases exponentially as we address one specific, community-identified need each year, in each GreenLight site. 

Since 2004, we have launched 44 portfolio organizations across eleven sites, invested $30.5M, and attracted an additional $206M from other funding sources, reaching more than 550,000 individuals and families last year alone.
