Victory Campaign Board Manager

Victory Campaign Board Manager

For over three decades, LGBTQ+ Victory Fund and LGBTQ+ Victory Institute have helped to train, place, and elect thousands of openly LGBTQ+ public officials at every level of government. Our leaders have been catalysts for expanding legal rights for LGBTQ+ people across the country, and they have transformed our nation’s policies and shifted our political landscape towards equality, one election at a time. Today, over 1200 LGBTQ+ Americans are serving in elected office due to the work of Victory. Victory’s work continues as LGBTQ+ people are severely underrepresented in all levels of government – serving in only 0.23% of all elected offices in the United States.

The Victory Campaign Board (VCB) is a select group of 160 individuals who identify, recruit and endorse LGBTQ+ candidates for elected office. They additionally commit to fundraising for those candidates they choose to endorse through bundled contributions. These are critical leaders in their respective communities when it comes to ensuring LGBTQ+ electoral success. The VCB is empowered to assess Victory Fund’s coveted endorsement, which is only received after extensive vetting and research is conducted, and a proven commitment to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community is demonstrated.

Victory Fund is searching for a VCB Manager to manage the Victory Campaign Board, member recruitment process and political fundraising program.
