Mission: Project Bread connects people and communities in Massachusetts to reliable sources of food while advocating for policies that make food more accessible—so that no one goes hungry. In collaboration with key partners, we deploy a two-pronged approach to achieve this goal by providing immediate relief to those who are hungry today and working to eradicate the systemic causes of hunger.
Project Bread is a vibrant organization with a deep commitment to driving lasting change. We work in a fast-paced environment that values learning and an entrepreneurial approach. Our team of dedicated staff are fundamentally people who apply a mission-focused approach to all tasks, celebrating victories big and small, and being flexible in navigating our organization’s rapid growth in response to the pandemic leaving more Massachusetts residents than ever before, unable to afford food.
The successful candidate will understand hunger is a systemic injustice long perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy, which is one of many reasons our approach promotes systems change to address hunger’s root causes. Achieving Project Bread’s mission therefore depends on every member of our team actively and consistently promoting equity in all that we do as employees, teammates, service providers, and thought leaders. The effective Development Coordinator will embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion as foundational to our work and actively contribute to continuously improving our culture, programs, and professional standards for enduring growth to reflect these values.
Role: The Development Coordinator is an integral part of the fundraising team, with a focus on support for Project Bread’s community of fundraising relationships and executing department projects. This position reports to the Director of Development, Individual Giving.
