The Richmond Rapid Response Fund (R3F) was launched in May 2020 and is a wraparound initiative that meets the immediate and ongoing needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. R3F is focused on key priority areas including food and essential supplies, economic recovery and security, housing and homelessness, health and healing, and education and learning.
Led by community and government leaders from the City of Richmond, The RYSE Center, EdFUND West, Richmond Promise, and Building Blocks for Kids (BBK), the R3F was born from a community-centered process that began the first week of the region-wide shelter in place. This process, known as the West Contra Costa COVID Community Care Coalition, engages over 90 cross-sector stakeholders including community partners and non-profits, the City, the School District, the County, local and regional coalitions, and funders. The Community Care Coalition will continue to inform and steward the R3F. EdFUND West serves as the fiscal sponsor for the R3F.
The R3F Program Officer is the first staffed position of the R3F. The Program Officer will manage and build on the work accomplished to date to fulfill the mission and goals of the R3F. This includes coordinating disbursement partners, working groups, and processes, responding to inquiries about the R3F, and connecting with other disbursement and support funds and efforts. This position is highly collaborative and will be responsible for engaging existing and new community members and residents, service providers, public agencies and offices, donors, and funders. The Program Officer will report to the Executive Director of EdFUND West, work closely with the core partners listed above, and engage Coalition partners to steward the mission, strategies, and sustainability of the fund.
Commensurate with experience. Medical, dental, and vision health benefits and generous paid vacation time.
