Portfolio Coordinator, Donor Services

Job Category: Donor Services – NEO

  • Full Time

Launched in 1983 as Public Interest Projects, a 501(c)(3) public charity, NEO Philanthropy is a New York based national leader in innovative philanthropic solutions. We lead large-scale collaborative grantmaking funds on a range of social justice issues, provide fiscal sponsorship and management to projects and campaigns, manage donor advised funds and develop organization and field-focused capacity building initiatives.

Over the past 40 years, NEO Philanthropy has helped all types of donors maximize their resources, support work they could not do on their own and gain access to strategic and cutting-edge advice around issues and philanthropic practice. NEO offers donors a range of ways to work with us – through donor advised funds, pooled funds, specialized grant programs and initiatives. All of these are customized programs that allow our donors to minimize their administrative costs in order to maximize their impact. They also get to leverage the expertise and depth of NEO’s senior staff, as well as gain access and benefit from our extensive networks in the philanthropic and grantee communities.


This position will report 50% to the Deputy Director, Donor Services & Special Projects (DS), and 50% to the Associate Director, Capacity Building (CB). NEO is committed to sustaining this position for a minimum of 24 months, with the possibility of an extension depending on future work and available resources. In the DS department, the Portfolio Coordinator supports a team of portfolio managers who in turn support 40+ diverse projects within the DS department. The Portfolio Coordinator will work closely with DS program staff to provide administrative support based on the needs of projects. In the CB department, the Portfolio Coordinator will support the Associate Director on a new Economic Mobility & Opportunity Fund (EMO Fund). The Portfolio Coordinator will work closely with the Associate Director to provide administrative support based on the needs of the Fund. The ideal candidate is an organized, reliable, and detail-oriented problem-solver with excellent judgment. They should have experience working in a fast-paced environment and be able to manage juggling multiple time-sensitive deliverables. Prior experience in the nonprofit sector is preferred, though not required.

Both departments work closely with our Legal, Finance, Operations, and Human Resources staff to ensure the highest quality service to our fiscally sponsored projects, funds, and their donors. The ideal person will have a basic understanding of nonprofit operations, including finance, grants administration, legal compliance and human resources. Experience with 501(c)(3) permissible lobbying is a plus. They work efficiently, independently, and proactively suggest process improvements.
