Grants Manager (Volunteer)

*Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment.*This is a remote-from-home position.


Are you an experienced Grant Manager who is passionate about making a difference? Would you find it exciting to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great journalism in the public interest? Can you commit (a minimum of) 10 hours a week to our mission, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team?


We are looking for a capable and highly motivated individual to create a strategy and manage the day to day efforts of a team that researches grant opportunities and writes grant proposals. This includes aiding in hiring and interviews, keeping track of all ongoing grant applications, and helping scout future grant opportunities. Strong candidates bring leadership experience, grant writing experience, and are team players.


WhoWhatWhy.org is a nonpartisan, agenda-free news organization. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking, we report the truth, whatever it is. We approach each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep beneath the surface - and don’t back away in the face of pressure from powerful institutions and groupthink.


We are a nonprofit. We are not funded by a zillionaire. We do not accept corporate ads. As such, we are only currently able to pay a small core team, as well as experienced professional freelancers - and rely primarily on skilled volunteers to fill out our growing organizational infrastructure.


Age does not matter. We have among us young students, vibrant retirees, and everything in between, from all walks of life.
