Desired Skills & Experience:
The Women's Foundation of Colorado is boldly leading essential, long-term, systemic change to advance economic opportunities for women and girls. Why is Change Needed? • In Colorado more than half a million women are living at or near poverty. • More than 5,000 girls drop out of high school each year, resulting in a lifetime of challenges that are difficult, if not impossible to overcome. One in four high school dropouts live in poverty. • Careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) offer higher salaries and earning potential during a woman's lifetime; however Colorado high school girls are less prepared than boys for college-level math and science - coursework needed to enter STEM careers and higher education programs for these careers. Many women are discouraged from pursuing their scientific interests. • Colorado families headed by single mothers have the lowest median annual income of all family types at $26,705, and the cost of child care can be nearly half their income. Through research, education, public policy, and strategic philanthropy, the Women's Foundation of Colorado works with the community to ensure women and girls are empowered to reach their full potential. We support women and girls by identifying needs and ensuring those needs are addressed through strategic collaboration with investors, volunteers, and community partners.

General Description The Colorado Trust (The Trust) is a private, statewide, health equity grantmaking foundation that is commencing a new long-term strategy to help advance health equity in Colorado through community-based participatory grantmaking that will be driven and led at the community level. Community based participatory grantmaking happens when communities have the ability to organize and act in a manner that promotes and realizes health equity. It is modeled after community-based participatory research (CBPR) and requires that The Trust authentically partner with the residents of communities and neighborhoods to together understand the assets, problems and priorities of unique places and constellations of people, and their intention to reduce and eliminate these inequities. The Trust’s vision is that All Coloradans have fair and equal opportunities to lead healthy, productive lives regardless of race, ethnicity, income or where we live. The Regional Community Partner will work in a region of the state, and will be responsible for partnering with resident-led groups to develop and implement strategies to advance health equity. We envision this work will lead to place-based strategies and grantmaking to help advance health equity in communities. The Regional Community Partner is an at-will employee of The Trust. Responsibilities ? Serve as a catalyst and trusted convener for community-based participatory grantmaking with communities, neighborhoods and residents ? Build a high level of trust, credibility and partnership with community residents of all ages and diverse demographics and backgrounds ?

Support and participate in communities’ research, understanding, development and implementation of strategies to advance health equity ? Assist in the development of evaluation and learning plans tied to a community’s work plan and funding strategies ? Strengthen and support community efforts to coalesce and form strategic alliances to address social, political and economic inequities ? Understand and appreciate the social determinants of health and how they affect people’s lives ? Work with and for communities to develop and launch their own theories of change or basis of action for health equity ? Participate with community leaders and residents to present funding proposals to The Trust’s staff and Board of Trustees ? Maintain a cooperative, supportive and productive relationships with other members of The Trust’s staff and board, grantees, community members and other funders, including demonstrated ability to work in and collaborate on teams ? Maintain confidentiality with respect to the business and affairs of The Trust and those with whom it has relationships ? Manage funding strategy budgets and payments to grantees, support internal grants management processes and assist in the budget reconciliation process for place-based projects. Supervisor Relationship The Regional Community Partners report to Director of Community Partnerships and Grants. While The Trust is headquartered in Denver, the Regional Community Partner will reside in the region in which he/she works, and will be expected to work effectively as a team member and independently, with a high level of self-motivation, integrity and accountability.
