Camp Korey is 100% free for all children and families, and grants income is a critical component of our fundraising strategy to ensure all of our programs and capital needs are funded. Grants staff has compiled a list of 40-50 grant prospects, and is seeking a volunteer to conduct further research into each funder. The volunteer will be given the list in Excel format and asked to research each funder's website, IRS 990s, or other publicly accessible information to learn the following:
-Is the funder a good fit for Camp Korey's mission, and are we aligned with their giving priorities? -What are their deadlines? -Do they fund program, capital, general operating, or all three? -Is there a Letter of Interest (LOI) process? Does the funder have a grants management portal, or do they accept open proposals? -What are the amounts of their giving range? -Is there a person in charge of their philanthropic/corporate giving? If so, what is their contact information?
This position will begin with a staff-led overview of Camp Korey's mission, history, programs, and future goals that will include review of guiding documents and watching videos on our YouTube channel. The position may also include introductory and clarifying calls to prospective funders.
The ideal candidate is highly ethical, and passionate about our mission to provide joy, confidence and resilience to children with serious medical conditions. Experience with grants research is preferred, but not required.

Camp Korey's mission is to honor the courage, strength and determination of children and their families living with life-altering medical conditions by providing them with a transformational experience in a fun, safe camp environment with specialized medical support.
Camp Korey offers children and families an escape from the endless medical treatments that have overshadowed childhood. Campers grow stronger, braver, and build leadership skills that they take into their everyday lives. Our campers have reported an increase in self-esteem, confidence and resilience, along with a network of friends and support to help them through the tough times. We work with a dedicated team of medical professionals and program facilitators to create a medically safe camp adventure. Camp is always free to campers and their families, thanks to our volunteers, donors and supporters.
