Our AmeriCorps members serve alongside educators and school nutrition leaders to provide kids with nourishing meals, food education, and culturally affirming experiences with food that celebrate and nurture the whole child. Building on this direct service, FoodCorps advocates for policy change, grows networks, and develops leaders in service of every kid’s health and wellbeing. Our goal is that by 2030, every child will have access to food education and nourishing food in school!

Job description What We’re Looking For:

Reporting to the Director of Philanthropic Experience & Operations, the Writer and Grant Manager will use strong research, analytical, and storytelling skills to craft compelling grant proposals, reports, and other donor-facing materials to help secure funding for the organization's approximately $25 million annual budget. This person will support the External Relations team by writing and sharing the FoodCorps narrative and impact with the organization’s diverse group of funders, stakeholders, and partners. 

This is a full-time, remote position and requires occasional travel for department meetings.

Who You Are:

You are passionate about FoodCorps’ mission and eager to share our story with a broad range of audiences, driving support for our work. You have outstanding writing, editing, persuasion, storytelling skills, with experience tailoring to multiple audiences. Your strong internal communication skills and ability to collaborate across departments and geographies have made you a gifted gatherer of stories, and you understand how to weave those stories into the larger narrative of an organization. You use your sharp research and analytical abilities to formulate cohesive arguments. You are adept at organization and project management, and you thrive in working collaboratively and independently in a deadline-driven environment.

How We Work:

At FoodCorps, we are intentional about how we do our work, and how we show up in the world. We practice being in charge of accessing, feeding, and evolving our worldviews. We connect with our history, own our flaws, evolve our biases, and deepen our understanding of ourselves. We are willing to hold ourselves and others accountable with care through courageous conversations while celebrating diversity, embracing complexity, and building belonging. We recognize that we do not have all of the answers, we create space for divergent perspectives. We are intentional and collaborative about shifting power, access, and resources to those most impacted by systemic oppression.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Serve as a writing and editing partner for our fundraisers.
  • Own writing projects from inception to completion including researching, writing, and submitting grant proposals, stewardship reports, and other funder-facing materials to foundations, individuals, and corporate partners.
  • Support the creation of funder briefings, pitch decks, cases for support, and visually compelling materials.
  • Work cross-departmentally to ensure written materials reflect the priorities of FoodCorps’ impact, anti-racism and DEI goals as well as meet the needs of funders and their respective requirements for grant agreements and applications.
  • Track and facilitate timely submission of proposals, post-award reports, and other writing requirements for funders.
  • Co-lead the development and implementation of a new Salesforce-based grants management system.
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date records and continually refine internal resources to support effective fundraising and storytelling. 

Submission Requirements: 

  • Please submit 1-2 writing samples with your application; ideally at least one of them will have been written for an external audience (examples: donor newsletter, annual report, or funder-facing report/proposal). Applications without the required work samples will not be considered.
