Job Description:

*OVERVIEW OF CNDC: * Are you excited by the idea of working with a nonprofit that supports 70+ charitable organizations across Colorado, giving you the chance to support a wide range of missions that are improving the quality of life for Coloradans? Do you enjoy roles that involve "behind the scenes" work? If so, read on for more information about the open Program Manager position at Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC), the state's largest fiscal sponsor (see description of fiscal sponsorship below). CNDC supports community leaders in launching and managing Projects that aim to bring about social change. In our 20 years of operation, we have grown to be a trusted partner whose administrative services allow charitable projects to focus on their programming and impact while we focus on the back-office piece of operations. We currently serve over 70 projects (, encompassing 200+ employees, and thousands of volunteers. Project missions are wide-ranging, and include education, public health, community organizing, environmental protection, and more. Each Project is different, from multi-million-dollar budgets with multiple staff and programs to those that are solely volunteer led with smaller fundraising needs and everything in between. For more on CNDC visit,

As a member of our administrative team (currently 19 people), you can expect to join a dynamic workplace where staff collaborate with each other through and across work groups, teams, and departments. At CNDC, every week can bring something new and different. On any given day, you may find yourself:

* Working with colleagues on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion audit, learning about how we can deconstruct racist structures that show up in our work
* Supporting a new Project leader with navigating a challenge
* Leaning on our robust processes and procedures to handle one of your day-to-day tasks
* Popping into a Zoom scavenger hunt hosted by CNDC's fun committee
* And much more in between!

CNDC also strives to create space for our team to celebrate and build our relationships, whether it be informal time to enjoy a meal together to designated time for us to kick back at the end of work week and share stories over Zoom. Further, CNDC values staff learning and growth, and strives to encourage staff members to seek out opportunities that will help them grow both in their current position and as they work towards future career goals.

CNDC is committed to racial justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. In the spring of 2020, we hired consultants to start us down the path of becoming a more just organization. We are looking for team members who will join us on that journey. While we are still learning and growing in that work, we aim to be a workplace where staff feel valued, heard, and feel like they can grow.

Fiscal sponsorship is when a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (CNDC) accepts charitable groups ("Projects") under its legal umbrella, allowing them to operate as nonprofits without needing to apply for approval from the IRS. At CNDC, we practice comprehensive fiscal sponsorship ( meaning there is no separation between CNDC and the Projects we fiscally sponsor - one bank account, one tax ID number, one insurance policy, etc. As the fiscal sponsor, CNDC provides Projects with back-office administrative services including accounting, human resources, risk management, banking, legal support, and capacity building. Fiscal sponsorship helps creates efficiencies and accountability in the nonprofit sector, as it frees up Project leaders so they can focus on program development and delivery, fundraising, and board development, and planning in service of their mission rather than on the back-end administrative services mentioned above.
