Since its founding, FRIDA has been very fortunate to initiate and secure partnerships with diverse institutional donors committed to girls’, young women’s and trans youth’s human rights through core and multi-year support. As our budget continues to grow to above $6 million USD, our objectives are to maintain and deepen our current partnerships. We also want to continue to leverage diverse resources across geographies to resource young feminist activism.

A key component of this role will be to work closely with FRIDA Programs and MEL team members to assemble data and stories on the impact of FRIDA’s grantee community. The role will also include helping to cultivate relationships with individual donors, through the implementation of FRIDA’s Individual Resource Allies Strategy, and supporting the creation of knowledge, opinion, and advocacy pieces to demonstrate FRIDA’s impact.

This is a full-time, permanent position. The location of the position is flexible and will be negotiated for where the applicant is legally able to reside. The Resource Mobilization Officer will be supervised by the Resource Mobilization Manager and join a team composed of the Resource Mobilization Manager, Senior Resource Mobilization Officer and Resource Mobilization Officer.
