33.)  Communications & Public Affairs Manager, Funders Together to End Homelessness, Boston (Remote possible), Massachusetts

 

Funders Together to End Homelessness is a national network of more than 160 funders working to end homelessness in the United States and Canada.  We believe that ending homelessness is possible, and philanthropy can be a catalyst to help end it.  But first we must come together to share what works, learn from each other, and challenge each other, with the goal of leading our communities and our nation toward ending homelessness.

 

We primarily work to accomplish three goals:

 

  1. Improve grantmaking to prevent and end homelessness by keeping funders apprised of best practices and innovation in the field;
  2. Increase collaboration and alignment of funding. Community efforts to end homelessness are exponentially more effective and efficient when funders align their strategies, outcomes, and evaluation metrics. We foster and develop opportunities for public-private partnerships, regional funders networks, and alignment around best practices; and
  3. Advocate for change. Funders who want to truly end and prevent homelessness must engage in advocacy efforts in their respective communities and/or at the national level. Through advocacy, philanthropy can help reduce policy barriers, leverage funds, and create bridges between different systems to have a real impact on ending and reducing homelessness.

 

Job Summary

The Communications Manager takes a leadership role in communications planning for the organization, reporting to the Executive Director. S/he oversees the development, design, and distribution of Funders Together’s resources, member communications, online communications, social media, and media relations. The ideal candidate appreciates the power of a communications plan and has a track record of designing and implementing successful communications strategies and campaigns.

 

Responsibilities

Responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

 

  • Work with the Executive Director to plan and execute communications strategic plan; develop editorial calendar and timeline for implementation
  • Create and disseminate member-/funder-focused content, including monthly e-newsletter, briefs and fact sheets, annual reports, email blasts, infographics, member recruitment materials, and other marketing collateral
  • Manage Funders Together’s digital presence, including website and social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest)
  • Conduct interviews with members to prepare case studies, featured member profiles, and other materials
  • Write and edit blog posts
  • Project manage and facilitate webinars
  • Draft talking points, presentations, and speeches for the Executive Director
  • Access, update, and create reports from CRM and CMS; analyze and present analytics to staff and Board of Directors
  • Provide technical assistance to Funders Together regional affiliates, as necessary
  • Troubleshoot website and database issues and make recommendations for improvements
  • Write press releases and oversee media relations
