Nonprofit Grant Writer
Please visit the new page to apply.
We are looking for someone who is interested in the rewarding career of grant writing for our children’s nonprofit. You will develop hands-on experience identifying, writing, and securing grants that help bring a voice to children that can’t yet speak for themselves.
The Cherab Foundation supports and embraces all children with a communication impairment such as Apraxia and Autism, and believes all children, regardless of diagnosis or ability to communicate verbally, have the right to education and the opportunity to pursue their goals and dreams without stigma, prejudice, or bullying. We have several initiatives that achieve these goals including a multimedia documentary project, a proactive antibullying project, and various research projects. Several of our events have received national and international press, and we are currently planning on taking some of our initiatives to schools nationwide to help children at the root.
The ideal candidate understands the importance of our projects and is passionate about researching grant opportunities from government/non-government agencies, as well as corporate, and private foundations that align with our nonprofit mission.
Working together with our nonprofit team you will
- Understand the financial needs of our nonprofit.
- Research grant opportunities
- Draft grant proposals
- Submit proposals to grant coordinators for approval.
Since the Cherab Foundation team is spread out across the US, we all work remotely.
The Cherab Foundation has been volunteer-based for over 20 years, yet as passionate as we have been for two decades, we now realize that without funding we have gone as far as we can and need your help. We appreciate with a volunteering position time is limited and hours are irregular and subject to change, so you will be interacting online on your own schedule. We are looking for someone independent, motivated, and organized who wants to be a part of something important to children and families from the US and all around the globe. We hope you share our interest in creating positive change by bringing children a voice.
About CHERAB FOUNDATION INC
2301 NE SAVANNAH RD, #1771, JENSEN BEACH, FL 34957, US
Volunteer-based since 2000, the CHERAB Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit for children with neurological or genetic impairments that affect communication with a focus on autism and apraxia. Our mission is to bring together parents with educational, speech, and medical professionals for research and to provide evidence-based and integrative approaches to help children on the neurological spectrum with therapy, nutrition, socialization, and awareness. Without support, children in these situations are falling through the cracks in diagnosis, treatment, and then education and life.
Lisa Geng founded the Cherab Foundation in 2000 after the diagnosis of both of her children with communication impairments. One of the diagnosis, apraxia, is a rare disorder with little to no support or research. Over 20 years later the Cherab Foundation continues to benefit the families of children with neurologically based communication impairments such as autism and apraxia by providing support, research, education, and advocacy while challenging stereotypes and perceptions. Our goal is to continue support and research as we expand our initiatives for socialization and awareness. Just because a child is quiet doesn’t mean they have nothing to say.
Our nonprofit initiated a unique proactive antibullying project which began with a spotlight on a bullied and/or alienated special needs child who in the past had nobody show up to their birthday party and were not invited to anyone else's birthday party. We held community birthday parties for these children in various states which has gathered national and international media attention. Since COVID, our volunteer team has been developing ways to transition our successful program into the schools. As passionate as we have been for two decades, we realize we have gone as far as we can on passion and are currently looking for grants to continue to expand our initiatives.
