Resource Generation (RG) is recruiting for a full-time Membership Coordinator who can help us better operationalize our integrated membership program and fundraising initiatives.

Resource Generation is a national non-profit organization mobilizing young people (age 18-35) with access to wealth and class privilege in the U.S. to become transformative leaders working towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power. The broader Resource Generation community includes people of all ages and class backgrounds who support the role that young people with wealth play in social change. RG has 18 chapters in cities around the U.S., and our chapters engage in base-building, political education programming, running giving circles, engaging in local and national campaigns, and building local organizational relationships.

Resource Generation is proud to have 800+ dues-paying members who have collectively made $40M+ in pledges to social justice movements in 2020. RG is 95% funded by our members. We seek a Membership Coordinator to join us in continuing this strong trajectory.

The Membership Coordinator will collaborate closely with our organizing team and Membership Director. The ideal candidate will be excited about developing strategies for using membership dues to RG as a way to catalyze and increase our members’ overall giving to social justice movements. They will be tasked with implementing our integrated fundraising strategy (including two annual giving pledge & membership drives), strengthening membership data systems, developing key written materials and resources for our membership program, and training up staff & members on our integrated fundraising model.

The RG staff is a multi-class and multi-racial team. We especially encourage those who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color; trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people; and people from poor and working class backgrounds to apply.
