Grant Writing Analyst
Do you want to join a team that helps ALIVE Rescue maintain and enhance its programs? Do you really enjoy writing, researching and/or networking? If yes to any of the following, the grant writing team is for you.
ALIVE Rescue’s grant writing team meets bi-weekly (although if you can’t make it physically you can communicate virtually). We research and find potential grants from foundations, companies and programs across the country. Once we’ve found a grant that we qualify for, we apply. Additionally, we work to maintain current relationships with foundations, companies or agencies that have previously funded our initiatives. Receiving grants is a very important part of maintaining and expanding current programs as well as creating future programs. If you’re not good at writing, you can help with research. And if you don’t prefer to research, you can help with writing! We will also need help with networking and maintaining current relationships.
Prerequisites: Professional writing experience helpful. Knowledge of animal rescue community in Chicago helpful. Six-month minimum commitment required. Great opportunity for someone looking to expand one’s professional writing skills and/or feed their love of research. We expect that a minimum of five hours per week is needed to effectively contribute to the team.
Tasks include the following responsibilities:
- Attending bi-weekly team meetings
- Understanding the scope of programming at ALIVE Rescue
- Communicating with Development Coordinator about ongoing issues
- Completing assigned grants and tasks in a timely and professional manner
- Providing follow up reports to funders
- Providing feedback to other team members
- Investigating new grant opportunities as needed
- Assist in maintaining foundation, company and agency relationships
