Institutional Giving Manager


Founded in 2017, March On is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization focused on harnessing the grassroots energy of mass mobilizations to create political power. March On supports and provides resources to hundreds of local affiliates and organizers nationwide, mobilizes our network for national campaigns, and partners with progressive organizations on joint initiatives. Since our inception, we have fundamentally shifted the balance of power by marching people to the polls through our monumental March On The Polls Midterm 2018 efforts, by amassing millions of people in the streets during the Women’s Marches of 2017, 2018, and 2019, and, through our Vote With Us campaign during the 2020 elections. 


Built by youth activists, for youth activists, Future Coalition is a national network that fosters community and collaboration among youth leaders and youth-led organizations. Young people have the ideas and passion to make incredible change in their local communities, in the country, and in the world. Future Coalition provides these young people with the tools, resources, and support to power their ideas and amplify their impact. For the last two years Future Coalition has coordinated the US Climate Strike Coalition [1], the coalition of over 500 organizations that collaborate to organize the Climate Strikes in the US. We were behind the September 20, 2019 Climate Strikes that mobilized over 650,000 people in the US. For the 2020 general election and the Georgia special elections, we helped to rally the largest voter turnout in the history of our country.


March On began incubating Future Coalition in June of 2018. After supporting 50 Miles More, one of its original member organizations, March On was uniquely positioned to offer the infrastructure and guidance needed to develop Future Coalition. Over the last few years, MO and FC have found many ways to collaborate through campaigns and programming. While the two organizations are autonomous and have their own individual identities, when it comes to strategy and operations, we share much of the work around administration, communications, digital, fundraising, fiscal projects, and more. We refer to our organizational structure as a “special unicorn” because we have built ourselves to be intergenerational, collaborative, and intersectional in everything we do. 


March On and Future Coalition share core beliefs around the power of collaboration and community––centering local, grassroots organizers to effect change. This relationship is at the heart of our family of organizations. 


About the Position: 

Now in our fourth year, March On and Future Coalition (MO/FC) have overcome some of the initial challenges of being a start-up non-profit. With a critically important electoral cycle having just come to an end, we are turning our sights to the future and focusing on making the organization sustainable for the long-term. As such, we are building out our team to ensure we position ourselves for success. 


Over the years, MO/FC have fostered and nurtured strong relationships with numerous donors, and we have explored many avenues for development and fundraising. We have successfully raised numerous mid-size six-figure grants, gained support from and earned credibility with validators and important stakeholders, and have tapped into a large pool of grassroots donors.
