The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice is the only philanthropic organization working exclusively to advance LGBTQI human rights around the globe. We support brilliant and brave grantee partners in the U.S. and internationally who challenge oppression and seed change. We work for racial, economic, social, and gender justice because we all deserve to live our lives freely, without fear, and with dignity.
The first grantmaker to hundreds of organizations, Astraea plays a catalytic role for LGBTQI groups around the world - particularly those led by lesbian and queer women, trans and gender non-conforming folks, intersex people, and people of color. Our grantmaking, capacity building, media and communications, and philanthropic advocacy programs support their work to challenge oppression and claim rights. A proud public foundation and one of the first women’s funds in the world, in our 40 year history we have granted over $39 million to LGBTQI activists and artists.
Astraea seeks a committed, collaborative and extremely organized person to join our Program Team as a Grants Management Associate. Working with a dynamic team of 8 people, the Grants Management Associate works to ensure that every one of Astraea’s applicants and grantee partners has a smooth and welcoming experience with our application and grantmaking systems.
The Grants Management Associate (GMA) will work with the Senior Grants Manager and the Associate Director of Programs to support the administration and processing of $3.5 million of grantmaking per year in more than 60 countries, spread across more than 350 grants. The GMA’s work is integral to increasing Astraea’s grantmaking capacity, improving efficiency, and ensuring that Astraea is in line with the field’s best practices. People of color; lesbian, bisexual and queer women; trans and gender non-conforming people; intersex people; and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
