The Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund (Equity Fund) is a groundbreaking funding initiative designed to drive resources to advance climate and clean energy equity and justice across the country. The Equity Fund is building power to stop climate change and create an equitable clean energy future through a strategic multi-state initiative that is:

  • Investing in the leadership and organizing of diverse communities (people of color, indigenous people, those most impacted by climate change);
  • Engaging voters through nonpartisan civic engagement campaigns; and
  • Winning equitable climate and clean energy policy solutions.


The Equity Fund is a dynamic organization and highly values teamwork, flexibility, initiative, and collaborative leadership. We are also an expanding team, which means the work can range from big picture strategy to detailed implementation. We are driven by a commitment to social and racial justice and the power of grassroots movements and organizing to create lasting change.

The Equity Fund’s Policy Accelerator program provides grantee partners with coaching and technical assistance to advance policies that improve the conditions of communities experiencing the causes and effects of climate change. The Policy Accelerator strengthens the skills, capacity, and leadership of community organizations to drive equitable energy policy.

Our ideal candidate is a nimble thinker, able to quickly adapt to changing internal and external conditions, and a well-rounded strategist, who is passionate about justice and equity, and will thrive in a start-up environment. The Program Coordinator will be a frequent multi-tasker, strategy generalist, and creative educator, who can respond to external and internal requests in a timely and precise manner. The candidate is comfortable offering new ideas, proactively solves problems, and knows how to work in collaborative, authentic partnership with groups that represent diverse communities.


The salary range for this position is $75,000-105,000/year, depending on experience. The New Venture Fund, the fiscal sponsor of the Equity Fund, has a comprehensive benefits package.
