Working in a foundation, you will invest money to advance specific organizational goals. In particular, you will assess the merit of grant applications (organizations, institutions, or individuals) to further your foundation’s mission. The grant-making process involves identifying projects and organizations to fund, providing strategic assistance to grantees, and monitoring their progress toward their goals. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll likely meet with grantees and potential grantees, write about their work in informational briefings and strategic plans, and create systems to measure your grantees’ impact. Much of your work will revolve around managing relationships to help grantees and potential grantees navigate the grant-making process and maximize the impact of the foundation’s investment. This role takes strong analytical and communication skills, project management skills, and the ability to juggle a portfolio of relationships.
