Call for Community Committee Members

Recruiting Community Committee Members for Mama Cash's Inaugural Participatory Process

Mama Cash is pleased to announce we are recruiting a Community Committee for our inaugural participatory grantmaking process. Mama Cash is becoming a participatory grantmaker as of our next grantmaking cycle in 2021; this means we are shifting decision-making about our grants from our staff to the communities we aim to serve, namely women, girls, trans people and intersex people who are creating a more just and joyous world.

The Community Committee (COM COM) will be Mama Cash’s participatory grantmaking decision-making body run for and by activists with experience in feminist movements. The first cohort of Community Committee members must be formerly or currently affiliated with Mama Cash, i.e. former Mama Cash Board members, former or current advisors, or former grantee-partners.

COM COM members will serve up to 3 years and will be mostly (but not exclusively) involved in reviewing applications annually in order to make decisions about which forward-thinking initiatives led by women, girls, trans people and intersex people get funded. Additionally, committee members will have other opportunities to expand their understanding of feminist philanthropy and strengthen their visibility and leadership in activist spaces. We are looking for the enthusiastic and committed individuals to shape this inaugural committee and create a collective space driven by Mama Cash’s values, including transparency, dialogue, and respect.

You can find more information about this opportunity in the Terms of Reference. If you want to apply please fill out the application form by November 30, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact community@mamacash.org.
