Global Philanthropy Project seeks two consultancies for the coming year! We would appreciate it if you can send either one of these calls to any consultants you feel meet the requirements detailed in the SOW. We hope to close both applications by February 4th.
The first consultancy is a short-term contract (two months) to evaluate the needs for GPP’s organizational home. Originally housed at Arcus Foundation, in December 2011 GPP moved to become housed as a program of Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice. In early 2015, GPP brought on full-time staff and has expanded since then. As we approach the ten year anniversary of our founding, GPP membership has agreed to evaluate and assess our needs for an organizational home in this stage of our organizational development.
The second consultancy is for a two-year full-time Regional Taskforce Coordinator. After broad consultation with member institutions and key stakeholders, GPP staff and leadership have developed clarity about the need for regionally-oriented groups as a key structure for our work moving forward. We are seeking a skilled organizer to help us manage these regional taskforces.
This new regional structure is an opportunity to build the grantmaking community and unique region-specific strategies at the local level, driven by local priorities, local expertise, and locally-based or focused grantmaking institutions. As many of our members and partners are oriented towards regional grantmaking, this model increases the likelihood of more authentic institutional partnerships and richer relationships with key local and regional staff throughout GPP member institutions. Moreover, this enables a clearer and more sustained alignment of effort and shared priorities around the urgent matters impacting our communities.
