FORGE Coordinator at SAGE Fund
About the SAGE Fund
The SAGE Fund strengthens accountability for economic actors by spurring innovation in approaches and building greater field capacity in the human rights movement to address critical gaps in protection created by the global economy. The Fund works interactively with NGOs, affected communities, and other partners in the field to cultivate new strategies and tools, and provides grants to pilot their development. The Fund also works with donors to facilitate field discussions and provide a vehicle for identifying opportunities for impact. The SAGE Fund is one of the founding members of FORGE and, together with Fundación Avina, is leading and managing FORGE’s collaborative grantmaking through the Response and Vision Fund.
About Funders Organized for Rights in the Global Economy (FORGE)
FORGE is a new collaborative of leading philanthropic donors working towards a global economy that works for all people and the planet, shaped by and accountable to worker and community-led movements. FORGE funders collaborate through active participation in a learning agenda, aligned funding and strategy development, and pooled funding to harness and scale opportunities.
The FORGE Coordinator is a new position and presents an exciting opportunity to work closely with leading donors in the human rights field to develop and lead a new collaborative. The Coordinator will use their talents in building consensus and facilitating collective action to support funders committed to advancing human rights in the global economy. As the lead staff member of FORGE, the Coordinator will drive learning and strategy development; align members’ funding approaches; and serve as thought-leader, representative, and coordinator of the FORGE collaborative. Though not a direct grantmaking role, this position offers the opportunity to strategically align donors in their giving and support implementation of that strategy. The Coordinator will be accountable for the priority goals and objectives set by FORGE members and work closely with FORGE’s Steering Committee. They will be managed by the SAGE Director and collaborate with Program Officers at both the SAGE Fund and Fundación Avina.
