MVP is a best-in-class advising platform connecting progressive donors to the most effective and promising grassroots organizations in the country working at the intersection of movements, community organizing, and elections. We aim to increase investment in frontline organizations led by the most impacted communities to increase turnout among the progressive base, build long-term political power, and ultimately to transform our country at the local, state, and national levels. In the 2020 cycle, MVP successfully moved over $120 million to over 600 local groups across the country, focused in the most critical states.
We are organizers, and the heart of our work is organizing donors through MVP to support local groups in order to build, sustain, and amplify their impact. We work in service of local groups, and we try to be aware at all times of the power dynamics of being a funder and to be careful about incentivizing actions that could alter an organization’s own priorities; we work hard not to impose on our partners. We are also striving to continuously scrutinize and dismantle the ways we manifest and reproduce white supremacy culture both internally and externally.
We focus on building from our assets, and taking a positive approach to growth and change that helps groups and donors to feel comfortable being vulnerable about their areas of improvement. We believe in a non-competitive, non-divisive, whole ecosystem approach; we are always seeking opportunities to support and encourage collaboration among groups and donors.
As the Director of Donor Organizing, you will lead MVP’s strategies to build and manage a scaled, decentralized volunteer donor organizing program that enlists MVP donors as peer-to-peer organizers and ambassadors. This program will steward thousands of donors by engaging, training, and supporting hundreds of donors as volunteer organizers in hosting peer-to-peer events and a range of outreach and organizing activities, building on the success of MVP’s current handful of strong local donor organizer teams.
This position will report to the VP of Development, and will work closely with the rest of the Development team. Over time, we expect to grow and make additional hires in the Donor Organizing department, starting with an events manager.
