Proteus Fund is excited to share that Alexandra Rachelle Siclait has joined the Proteus Fund team as the new Director of Fiscal Sponsorship. In this role, Alexandra will lead our fiscal sponsorship practice, implementing strategy, service coordination, business development, and stewardship for a rich ecosystem of social justice initiatives. Through fiscal sponsorship, Proteus Fund partners with emerging initiatives and innovative movement leaders, enabling them to focus on growing their impact with the support of a trusted operational partner. From supporting advocacy and organizing led by and for communities of color and LGBTQ communities to building progressive narrative power and critical movement messaging, we closely partner with strategic initiatives that are aligned with our vision and values and that we believe can significantly impact our world. Supporting the growth and success of these projects accelerates our collective impact and leads to important wins for racial, gender, queer, and disability justice and inclusive democracy.
Alexandra brings over a decade of experience working in the corporate, nonprofit, and public sectors to her new role at Proteus Fund. Her career portfolio includes Creative Capital, the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History. Most recently, Alexandra served as the Leadership Programs Officer at the Bush Foundation, co-leading the Bush Fellowship and Leadership Ecosystem grant programs and developing the leadership of individuals to think bigger and differently about problem-solving. Before joining the Bush Foundation, Alexandra worked at Creative Capital, where she supported socially engaged, forward-thinking artists grappling with pressing social issues in media, incarceration, spatial justice, gender politics, and contemporary cultural history. In partnership with the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), she produced an entire season of NYC-based professional development workshops–celebrating the value of over 360 individual artists annually.
Alexandra has found her true passion in coaching and advising leaders and organizations on how to unlock their highest level of performance, scale operations, and provide strategic support through moments of change. The Proteus Fund team is excited to welcome her and see how she brings her impressive experience and energy to fiscally sponsored projects, providing innovative movement leaders with tailored, holistic, and comprehensive support as they work to transform our communities.
