Alliance for Education

Grants Manager

About the Alliance for Education:
The Alliance for Education was founded in 1995 as an independent, non-profit organization with the mission of ensuring that every child in Seattle Public Schools is prepared for success in college, career and life. In partnership with SPS and other educational stakeholders, the Alliance mobilizes resources and implements evidence-based programs that advance academic achievement and opportunity for all students, especially for students with disproportionately low outcomes comparative to their peers. In 2016 the Alliance embarked on a new strategic direction focused on equity, in alignment with SPS’s plan to close the opportunity and achievement gaps in Seattle's highest-need schools.

Position Summary:
The Grant Manager is a key member of the Development Department. This position plays a critical role in helping the Alliance achieve its ambitious impact goals by securing foundation and corporate funders. The Grant Manager researches and identifies corporate and foundation prospects; cultivates and deepens relationships with current funders, writes and edits compelling proposals and reports that convey the goals and mission of the Alliance; and manages all deadlines, and communications relating to grants. The Grant Manager reports to the Director of Development and works closely with staff across the organization to collect data for grant-funded programs, develop organizational budgets, track grants and sub-grants, and identify current funding priorities within key programs.
