About Leadership for Educational Equity
Leadership for Educational Equity is a nonprofit leadership development organization inspiring and supporting a network of civic leaders to eradicate the injustice of educational inequity.
Through one-on-one coaching, fellowships, workshops, and resources, LEE works to develop and inspire its members individually and collectively, across all disciplines – as policy makers, advocates, elected leaders and community organizers. LEE membership is free and currently open to all TFA corps members and alumni. LEE believes that when a diverse group of leaders, grounded in their classroom experience, are in leadership roles, they will serve as a transformative force for and with students, communities and the broader movement for educational equity.
LEE is a diverse team of passionate and talented individuals committed to making a difference. We are a high-growth, results-oriented organization that operates in an entrepreneurial environment deeply invested in continuous improvement. LEE is honored to have been selected as a LATINA Style 50 Award recipient and a When Work Works award recipient. We are also an Employer of National Service. If you would like to become part of our team and join the fight for educational equity, or if you would simply like to learn more, please visit educationalequity.org.
The Development team (referred to as Supporter Relations / SR) fuels LEE’s growth and success by ensuring that the organization has the resources and network of supporters it needs to achieve its ambitious goals. The Development Manager, Grants & Partnerships must have excellent writing skills and be comfortable working against tight deadlines to develop grant proposals, reports, and create donor collateral. They should bring experience working successfully in cross-functional teams, and a fluency in funding proposals in ambiguity.
The Development Manager reports to the Vice President, Supporter Relations and is an integral part of a 5-person team supporting the organization’s fundraising operations. The Manager will have the opportunity to be part of a new department charged with expanding funding and partnerships for the organization. Candidates should be comfortable working in ambiguity and eager to innovate and create out-of-the-box strategies that support continued growth.
