Chief Philanthropy Officer, Women Moving Millions

The Organization – Women Moving Millions

CHIEF PHILANTHROPY OFFICER | WOMEN MOVING MILLIONS
HYBRID WORK MODEL
Flexibility to be based in one of the following metro areas: New York, NY; Boston, MA; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; or San Francisco, CA. Preference for the role to be based in New York, NY.

Women Moving Millions’ (WMM) mission is to catalyze unprecedented resources to realize a gender-equal world. Launched initially as a campaign, WMM founders believed in the power and potential of what is possible when you gather a community of women together with a shared commitment to change the world. In the last decade, the community has grown to nearly 400 members who have collectively committed over $1B to improve the lives of women, girls, and gender-expansive people worldwide. WMM does this not just because they believe in gender equality, but because it’s a smarter, more effective way to foster a more equitable world.

At WMM, they envision a gender equal world where women and girls are agents of change in their own lives and communities. A world that is just, at peace, and flourishing. To achieve this vision, they believe greater resources must be directed to the intersecting movements fighting for gender and racial equality. With less than 2% of philanthropic capital going to women and girls, this vision will remain out of reach unless the quantity and quality of funds going to feminist movements and leaders increases exponentially.

To accomplish this vision, WMM seeks to strengthen the funding ecosystem of the movement and serve as a bridge to the intersecting movements working towards gender equality. Through the curation of a dynamic community of women philanthropists, they are able to tap into and leverage members’ collective influence and power (resources, social capital, and expertise) and drive greater capital to accelerate progress. WMM takes a ‘big tent’ approach to its membership, including women at all stages of their philanthropic journeys, creating spaces for members to be vulnerable, build trust, and hold one another accountable as they learn, grow, and act.

Today, WMM brings its unique platform, movement expertise, and position as a leader in catalyzing capital to bear in everything they do. It has a proven track record of moving money to the movement: from its founding campaign, which raised a groundbreaking $181M for 41 women’s funds, to the 2020 Give Bold, Get Equal Campaign, which secured $110M in new member commitments amidst the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Women’s Power and Influence Fund, seeded by Pivotal Ventures in 2022, which activated over $11M in new giving. WMM’s history and approach as an organization and community builder is proof that when women give boldly, others will follow.

In 2023, WMM launched a new strategic planning effort, with leadership support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to offer a new, bold vision and roadmap for how WMM will meet the urgent challenges impacting women’s rights globally and set it on an accelerated path to move the next billion dollars in resources to the movement for gender equality in its history. Through this plan, WMM seeks to unleash the full power of this community, and support a more diverse ecosystem of members, nonmembers, funding partners, and investment activity.

Position Overview

Amid this critical mission and environment of extraordinary investment and expansion, WMM seeks candidates for Chief Philanthropy Officer (CPO). The CPO provides comprehensive and strategic leadership of WMM philanthropic engagement and revenue growth initiatives. The primary responsibility of this leader is to drive strategies for the ongoing growth of a diverse community of philanthropic support and deep, long-term relationships based on the common goal of gender equality. Reporting directly to the CEO, the CPO works closely with senior executive and Board leadership to establish and advance philanthropic engagement goals and secure the revenue necessary to sustain WMM’s overall efforts for gender equality. The CPO will manage an evolving team that currently includes the Director of Community Engagement, Assistant Director of Communications, and Member Engagement Associate and is projected to expand commensurate with organizational growth and in consultation with the CEO. The CPO will lead efforts to fund implementation of WMM’s strategic priorities by simultaneously growing sources of recurring revenue (member dues and contributions, foundation and corporate support) to ensure long-term sustainability and raising supplementary growth capital through major gifts to WMM from members and foundations.

This is a unique opportunity to play a significant role in advancing gender equality for a philanthropy leader who possesses a background of developing and executing creative, effective fundraising strategies and events as well as a sophisticated understanding of influencing and stewarding high-net-worth donors, family offices, foundations, and institutional philanthropy.
