Our 4-person Development Team is searching for a volunteer to help with administrative activities related to grants and foundation relations for our organization. We are seeking a good humored and organized individual to assist with re-organizing and preparing foundation folders, filing grant-related documents, helping to maintain digital files, as well as some day-to-day administrative duties. This friend of Western Center would help us secure needed funding to ensure legal justice and maintain critical programs for millions of poor Californians.

We prefer the opportunity go to someone with past grants and/or administrative experience but we would consider someone actively seeking a certification in grant writing through an accredited program.

Activities will be supervised and guided by the Foundations Manager and would require a 6 - 8 hour commitment per week to help with the following activities:

  • Review hard copy and digital grants files, synthesize information and create master folders for all past, current and perspective funders
  • Update active and create new foundation files as needed to reflect accurate information
  • Use Microsoft office suite and E-Tapestry database software to prepare lists and manage records
  • Assist with mailings and provide administrative support to Foundations Manager where necessary
