Program Manager, Working Group on Place-Based Community Change and Funders for Justice
Oakland, CA
Lorraine Ramirez manages NFG's Working Group on Place-Based Community Change, and Funders for Justice (www.fundersforjustice.org), an initiative focused on police accountability and racial justice, which launched in late 2014.

Lorraine joined NFG in December of 2012, and has worked in social justice philanthropy for over a decade, in the areas of housing and the foreclosure crisis, LGBTQ rights, gender justice, and anti-violence organizing strategies. Lorraine has also served in fundraising roles with social justice community-based organizations dedicated to racial justice, economic justice, immigrant rights, workers' rights, and LGBTQ rights. Lorraine previously worked in US Programs at the Open Society Foundations, as a member of the Equality and Opportunity Fund, on the Gender Justice and LGBTQ Rights portfolio, and the Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative.

Lorraine began her work in philanthropy with five years on the grantmaking team at the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, across their international and US-based grant programs. Lorraine has also consulted and partnered with a number of grassroots organizations in several fundraising capacities, including strategies for cultivating both foundation and individual donor partners. Lorraine has served on the board of the Audre Lorde Project, and the Justice Committee, a Latina/o-led organization dedicated to building a movement against police violence and systemic racism in NYC. She is currently a board member of the Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT).
