The Program Coordinator, Climate Justice is a core member of the Philanthropic Services team and the broader Partnership Services Department at Tides. The Philanthropic Services team provides integrated services for individual, family, foundation, and nonprofit leader partners to support grantmaking, impact investing, advocacy, donor collaboration, and strategic advisory solutions. 

Working on the philanthropy team, the Program Coordinator role will ensure the operational efficiency and effectiveness of our climate/environmental justice initiatives, the Women’s Environmental Leadership Fund (WE LEAD) and the Frontline Justice Fund, two Tides-led initiatives (TLIs).  Both of these grantmaking initiatives center community-based organizations and proximate leadership and aim to strengthen the power of groups who face systemic barriers to resources and opportunities.    

At their core, the Program Coordinator must have a strong internal and external client service orientation and be adept at managing complex administrative and operational needs. The Coordinator will work in direct partnership with the Program Officer, Climate Initiatives and the Executive Director, Tides Foundation and is often the first line of contact for the climate/environmental justice initiatives from grantee and donor partners and internal stakeholders.   

The Program Coordinator provides exceptional service and support to ensure that objectives are met, and that those objectives reflect Tides’ mission, and comply with Tides’ policies and procedures. The ideal candidate will be personally connected to Tides’ mission and see this role as an opportunity to directly act as a force for social good. 

This is a new, full-time position anticipated to start in late May/early June 2024, lasting approximately 24 months, ending in May 2026. This position, which is funded by two Tides Foundation grantmaking funds, will receive full-time benefits (health, dental, vacation, and more) and has the potential to extend or become permanent after the initial period. Employment beyond this term is dependent on continued grant funding and programmatic needs. This is a remote position based within the U.S.   

This position is classified as part of our collective bargaining unit (SEIU 1021).
