Director Of organizational Budgeting

About Community Change and Community Change Action:

Community Change [1] builds the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to lead powerful and dynamic movements for social change. With our community-based partner groups, we bridge the grassroots and the national, supporting outsider strategies to disrupt the status quo while also building pathways to influence the insider conversation. 

Our vision of a better world centers the leadership of impacted people of color to move our work on immigrant rights, economic justice, and racial equity, including a focus on jobs and housing, early childhood care and education, income supports, and immigration reform.

This position also supports Community Change Action [2], an affiliated 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. While motivated by the same core values – equity, inclusion, and justice – Community Change and Community Change Action operate independently of one another and each organization has its own board of directors.


Position Description:

Community Change is seeking a strategic and detail-oriented individual to serve as its Director of Organizational Budgeting. This is a senior role responsible for leading, managing, and implementing the organizational budgeting process. In addition, this position oversees the financial planning of programs and key campaigns, which requires a high-level of financial analysis, forecasting revenue and expenses, and a deep alignment with program budget managers.  

Overall, this position plays a critical role in delivering, innovating and strengthening the organization’s budgeting process and systems. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who thrives in a dynamic environment and is able to provide leadership to advance short-term and long-term organizational goals. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to social justice, a strong understanding of non-profit budgeting infrastructure and an extensive professional background that includes financial management, accounting, and grants management.
