Development Manager – Just Transition Fund

Just Transition Fund - Remote

The Just Transition Fund is on a mission to create opportunity for the communities hardest hit by the coal industry’s decline. They help build resilient communities by promoting equitable, inclusive, and low-carbon economic solutions, resulting in positive results for the places they serve.

As a grantmaker, convener, and catalyst, The Just Transition Fund supports local innovators and community advocates in building diverse and resilient economies and helps transition them toward a prosperous future.

From the Navajo Nation to Appalachia, The Just Transition Fund helps coal-impacted communities plan for a bright economic future.

The Just Transition Fund was established in the spring of 2015 by the Rockefeller Family Fund and the Appalachia Funders Network with the support of six other foundation partners: Blue Moon Fund, the Chorus Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, The JPB Foundation, The Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, and Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
