Join Our Team
The Center for Economic Democracy (CED) is a US social movement building organization, growing capacity in our communities to transition capitalism into a just, sustainable and democratic economy. Based in Boston, CED's program areas include local racial and economic justice initiatives like the Solidarity Economy Initiative, Coalition for Worker Ownership and Power (COWOP), Municipal Democracy/Yes for a Better Budget, while offering training and technical assistance for economic democracy efforts across the US through our Economics for Emancipation and Movement Finance educational programs. We also fiscally sponsor the U.S.' first community-controlled investment loan fund, the Boston Ujima Project, and the immigrant empowerment co-op developer, the Centro Cooperativo de Desarrollo & Solidaridad.
Senior Director of Capital Strategies
Playing a new role within CED, the Senior Director of Capital Strategies will help lead and expand our work to redistribute and democratize finance capital in service of building economic democracy in the US. This position builds on CED’s history as a philanthropic steward, donor advisor and capital strategies innovator, working at the intersection of grassroots organizing and impact investing.
The Senior Director of Capital Strategies will oversee fundraising efforts for CED and our local partners, while advancing regional and national strategies to democratize the governance of capital across a broader range of asset classes and institutions. The Senior Director of Capital Strategies will hire and supervise a Grants & Investments Associate, and work closely with the Executive Director and Senior Program Director. Together, this team will design and implement donor and investor-related education and organizing programs, as well as strategies and experiments to build movement-aligned infrastructure in the realm of finance.
