Astraea supports brilliant and brave grantee partners in the U.S. and internationally who challenge oppression and seed change. The Foundation’s founders—a cross-class, multi-racial group of women activists—dreamed of a women’s movement that centered the leadership of lesbians and women of color. For over four decades, Astraea has uniquely supported women’s rights and LBTQI movements working at the crossroads of gender justice, racial justice, bodily autonomy, sexual rights, and self-determination because we all deserve to live our lives freely, without fear, and with dignity. The first grantmaker to hundreds of organizations, Astraea plays a catalytic role for LGBTQI groups around the world – particularly those led by lesbian, bisexual and queer women, trans and gender nonconforming folks, intersex people, and people of color. Astraea’s grantmaking, capacity building, media and communications, and philanthropic advocacy programs support work to build powerful movements for justice. A proud public foundation and one of the first women’s funds in the world, in its 44-year history Astraea has granted over $49 million to LGBTQI activists and artists.

Job Description

 

The Client

Established in 1977, the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice (Astraea) is one of the first women’s funds in the world and the only solely dedicated to LBTQI rights globally. The founders – a cross-class, multi-racial group of women activists – dreamed of a feminist movement that centered the leadership of lesbians and women of color. For over four decades, Astraea has uniquely supported women’s rights and LBTQI movements working at the crossroads of gender justice, racial justice, bodily autonomy, sexual rights, and self-determination.

As a LBTQI women’s fund, Astraea uniquely fuels groups at the nexus of feminist and LBTQI movements. Astraea’s reach is unparalleled: since its inception, they have granted over $49 million via more than 5,000 grants to over 2,000 grantee partners in 120 countries and nearly all 50 states in the United States (U.S.). Astraea shifts power and resources to LBTQI and feminist activists so that they can build strong, intersectional movements that combat violence and discrimination, counter structural economic and social inequalities and drive transformational cultural change.

Headquartered in New York City, Astraea’s mission is advanced by more than 30 staff in the U.S. and around the world. The team comes from diverse backgrounds and possesses a wealth of experience and knowledge. Tied together by a deep passion for human rights and social justice, the staff places a high value on self-awareness, commitment to racial justice, shared learning, and genuine kindness.

Over the years, Astraea has continued to honor the legacy of its founding mothers: uncompromising in a vision of rights for all, upholding values such as belief in self-determination, community empowerment, movement building, and building across issues and generations. The organization that grew from this lesbian feminist vision is a multi-gender, multi-racial, multi-identity public foundation that in 2020 granted over $5.3 million to 203 grantee partners across the globe. 

Astraea operates with a budget of $14 million and is governed by a 13-person Board of Directors. To learn more, please visit: https://www.astraeafoundation.org/

 

The Opportunity

The mission of Astraea is needed now more than ever. Our world and our people are up against unending challenges, and with the confluence of global health, political, and economic disruptions unfolding amid tectonic shifts in philanthropy and LGBTQI movements, the need for bold queer feminist funding has never been greater. Astraea experienced exponential and transformative growth over the past several years, including receiving an unrestricted $4M gift from MacKenzie Scott last year. With a significantly increased base of funding, Astraea has radically increased its reach and impact. Now, while continuing to build power and challenge the status quo, Astraea is utilizing this leadership transition period to invest in organizational development and staff well-being.

Since September 2019, under the leadership of Interim Executive Director Sandy Nathan, Astraea has invested in its operational and financial infrastructure, hired critical roles, and restructured staff teams and reporting lines to align more with its functions. They have also prioritized staff wellness and sustainability, centered conversations on anti-oppression, anti-racism, and Astraea’s values, and built strategic alignment across the board and staff on Astraea’s priorities moving forward. 

This is a time of transition and stabilization for this 40+ year old organization. This is an exceptional opportunity for a leader to lay the foundation and build the infrastructure for what Astraea will be in its next decades, shaping the organization to meet this moment and beyond.

The new leader will inherit a financially stable, mission-driven organization with a strong culture that is living its feminist social justice values.
