Grant Writer with Helping Hands (Ages 55+)

Save to Favorites


Quick Overview: Help build partnerships and grow Helping Hands Community presence in Southern California.
Organization Name: Helping Hands Community
Organization Website: https://helpinghands.community/
Mission: Helping Hands Community is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those most vulnerable to COVID-19: senior citizens, the immunocompromised, and people with preexisting medical conditions that put them at additional risk. Our national network of volunteers deliver groceries, medications, and other necessary supplies, and our local and national partners-including city and county governments, mutual-aid organizations, faith-based organizations, food banks, community groups-scale our efforts to help us identify and reach those in need.
The Helping Hands Community platform makes local volunteerism easy and reliable while providing an easily integrated, tech-enabled solution for partners to scale their impact. Founded by veterans of Uber, Facebook, and Google, the Helping Hands Community organization comprises more than 100 volunteers from professionals who want to give back to students beginning their careers from around the country.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: We’re looking for a Grant Writer who can research and identify funding for Helping Hands Community. This role is absolutely critical to scaling our platform and reaching a larger population of those most vulnerable to Covid-19.
What You’ll Do:
- Research, develop, and write inquiries, letters, and other fundraising documents.
- Draft proposals and other correspondence to solicit grant funds.
- Track and monitor proposals, their deadlines, and requirements.
- Ensure proposals and grant reports are submitted by the deadline(s).
- Can bring empathy and operational rigor to the position.
- Demonstrate strong planning, communication, and organizational skills.
- Passion for community service!
- Prior experience researching and writing grants preferred.
Location: This can be a virtual volunteering opportunity with the option of contact-less in-person event participation (if your situation allows).
Commitment to the team: Helping Hands Community is a team of volunteers that have mobilized to help slow the spread of Covid-19. The majority of volunteers are devoting time outside of their other job to support Helping Hands. The demands for a role like this requires someone who can devote at least 8 hours per week to this job. Because the team is dispersed across the country and due to the unique hours individuals are working, frequent use of communication channels like email are critical to ensure no one is bottlenecking decisions or tasks.
