Funders for Reproductive Equity is a community of grant makers who address issues of sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice in the United States and around the world. We aim to ensure that all people have the rights and resources to make and act on decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. To that end, we seek to improve communication, foster collaboration, increase resources, and enhance the effectiveness of funders in this field.
Funders for Reproductive Equity (FRE) strengthens the impact and effectiveness of philanthropy supporting reproductive health, rights and justice in the United States and around the globe. At a pivotal moment when reproductive rights are being challenged at an unprecedented rate both domestically and globally, and the field of philanthropy evolves strategically to view reproductive rights and justice within a broader intersectional equity lens, FRE seeks an experienced and visionary Executive Director who will usher in an exciting new era of leadership.
With appreciation for the diversity of missions and imperatives of funders in the field, FRE celebrates those differences and seeks to create spaces that promote effective collaboration, coordination, and alignment.
To support its membership base, FRE offers a range of initiatives, resources, meetings, and learning opportunities on the most pressing issues in the field, introducing its members to emerging areas of interest and innovations in grantmaking and philanthropy, encouraging collaborations among members and producing the most comprehensive source of data about foundation giving in the field. Additionally, FRE nurtures collaboration by convening working groups of funders with shared interests, including: International Funders, Women of Color, Youth Leadership and Engagement, and State-Level. FRE has a talented, remote staff team of three and an annual operating budget of $1.2 million.
The new Executive Director will advance FRE’s vision and role in shaping the conversation in the field of reproductive equity, rights, health, and justice and in philanthropy as a whole. S/he/they will be a dynamic, visionary leader with a deep commitment to FRE’s mission, with insight into the intersectionality of reproductive equity across social justice and international issues; a sophisticated understanding of the role that philanthropy can play in supporting and advancing reproductive equity; and proven experience developing innovative programs and initiatives that advance shared values and goals.
