  • Overview

    Stand Together unleashes the power of community to solve our country’s toughest problems and help people improve their lives. We identify, support, and celebrate community-based organizations applying effective solutions to the driving causes of poverty. Through targeted programming, training, and organizational development we provide the resources and tools necessary for these catalysts for social change to grow, scale, and replicate their impact across the country.


    Our team is working to identify and cultivate relationships with promising non-profit organizations with the potential for scalable impact — we call them “Catalysts”—that is why we are hiring a Partnership Development Manager. The ideal candidate will develop strategies and tactics to build a robust pipeline of potential partners within a specific region. This person will work closely with internal stakeholders including the research team to hone and develop prospecting methodology, criteria, and screening tools that support successful relationship development and partnership analysis. As the relationship manager in the field, this role will make a significant contribution by providing recommendations for the Catalyst Program and insight and perspective as we consider venture philanthropy investments. We are currently looking for someone who is passionate, empathetic, motivated and highly entrepreneurial to help us find the very best social entrepreneurs in the country.
