Movement for Black Lives
The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) formed in December of 2014 and was created as a space for Black organizations across the country to debate and discuss the current political conditions, develop shared assessments of what political interventions were necessary in order to achieve key policy, cultural and political wins, convene organizational leadership in order to debate and co-create a shared movement wide strategy. M4BL is an ecosystem of more than 150 Black led organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country that have come together with renewed energy, strategy and purpose to articulate a common vision and agenda. Our ecosystem is united by core values and politics that seek to build an anti-capitalist, abolitionist and Black queer feminist future. The Movement for Black Lives’ budget has grown significantly to meet the needs of the ecosystem and the urgency of this political and cultural moment. M4BL’s donor base now consists of multi-year commitments from diverse funding streams across major individual donors, corporations, private, public and family foundations, trusts, and other assets. In this phase of our growth, M4BL is looking for new staff members to join an expanding finance and operations team.
As a lead member of the finance and operations team, the Grantmaking Manager facilitates the Movement for Black Lives’ work by (A) overseeing the distribution of grants on behalf of the organization, (B) serving as a liaison between finance and program teams, (C) ensuring compliance with IRS and GAAP rules related to giving, and (D) ensuring that all M4BL grantmaking files and data are secure and appropriately accessible. The M4BL Grantmaking Manager reports to the Director of Finance and Operations.
