Reports To: Associate Vice President for Programs
FLSA Classification: Exempt FTE: 1
Massachusetts is home to an incredibly robust and diverse nonprofit sector. While there are almost 40,000 nonprofit organizations across the Commonwealth, we know that approximately 4,500 of these are engaged in active programming within Greater Boston and have budgets between $500,000 and $10,000,000. The Nonprofit Effectiveness (NPE) cross-cutting strategy is designed to support these organizations and leaders. We believe that a focus on advancing the 5 Elements of Nonprofit Effectiveness is a key part of achieving sustained social impact for Greater Boston. We have found that impactful, high-performing, sustainable nonprofit organizations are continually working to advance 5 Elements: 1) a commitment to racial equity, 2) strong operations, 3) effective, connected and representative leaders, 4) a learning culture, and 5) financial health. The NPE strategy works to advance these 5 Elements via aligned investments in local sector infrastructure and resources for grantees and nonprofit partners.
The Senior Program Associate, Nonprofit Effectiveness will work closely with the Associate Vice President for Programs to manage this body of work. In this position, the Senior Program Associate will serve as a thought partner for overall strategy development, will design and implement programming, support grantmaking, build and maintain internal and external relationships, conduct research, coordinate convenings and events, and handle other duties as assigned.
