The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is a high-caliber, strategic policy organization that informs and shapes public policies to reduce poverty, promote equity, and build opportunity, on both the federal and state levels. To advance these goals in the states, the Center co-founded and continues to coordinate and convene the State Priorities Partnership.
The State Priorities Partnership is the nation’s leading network of state policy organizations working to advance racial, social, and economic equity to build broad prosperity and thriving state economies. The Center’s State Fiscal Policy (SFP) team of almost 40 staff works directly with member organizations, the Steering Committee of Partnership Directors, and the Partnership’s National Funding Collaborative to implement a shared vision for the network — from cultivating collaboration across state lines to distributing millions of grant dollars. Together the Partnership fields a team of almost 300 staff backed by a combined budget of $30 million. This work is supported by several national and local philanthropic partners whose priorities closely align with those of the Center and the State Priorities Partnership.
The State Network Advancement Manager works as part of a small team of staff to develop a holistic understanding of the funding landscape for the state team and network. With the Director of Network Philanthropic Engagement, they assist in the creation and execution of a coordinated strategy for fundraising and funder stewardship for the Center, as well as advising on state-specific approaches for Partnership groups.

- Bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 5 years of relevant work experience or at least 8 years of policy, political, or advocacy fundraising experience required.

- Excellent interpersonal skills that demonstrate awareness of multiple group identities and their attendant dynamics and match intent and impact in interactions both within the Center and with a wide variety of external partners.
- Excellent reading, writing, research, and editing skills with impeccable attention to detail.
- Ability to multi-task, meet deadlines, and demonstrate grace under pressure.
