The Starfish Foundation, Ecuador

We are looking for a Grants Coordinator to join our team to assist with grant applications throughout the year! You would work on grants that can be completed virtually in support of Starfish. This position requires independence, excellent writing and communication skills, adaptability to a high-feedback environment, and a desire to help grow our development initiatives. Prior knowledge of Starfish a plus. Some research is already done, so the first, immediate project would be to identify which grants have upcoming deadlines that we can apply to, establish relationships with granting organizations, compile a folder of resources that the grants require, and draft grant applications to be reviewed by the Development Manager. A Grants Coordinator will be a great addition to our team to grow our fundraising presence.
