Under the supervision of the Alliance’s Chief Development Officer, and in close collaboration with the Chief Executive Officer, the Grants Manager is responsible for collaborating with staff to raise approximately $3 million (of an approximately $6.3 million annual organizational budget) from private foundations and corporations. The ideal candidate is a strong and compelling writer who possesses excellent organizational skills and is meticulous with details, follow up and juggling multiple deadlines and priorities. The position will interact with program staff to shape and articulate the work of the Alliance into successful grants. The Grants Manger researches prospects, develops proposals and progress reports, prepares correspondence, creates budgets, and maintains relationships with funders and program officers, keeps accurate records and timelines and ensures compliance on all grants.


The Alliance for Children’s Rights protects the rights of impoverished, abused and neglected children and youth. Our lawyers, advocates and social workers, together with hundreds of pro bono attorneys and community volunteers, ensure that children have safe, permanent homes and can access the healthcare, education and financial supports that they need. We also help transition-age youth achieve self-sufficiency, and work statewide to improve child welfare practices and policies in order to remove the many barriers our clients face. Since 1992, we have helped over 150,000 children.

The breadth of the Alliance’s work is impressive, and it keeps the Grants Manager job interesting and fulfilling. It includes foster care adoption; legal guardianship; education; benefits; healthcare; removing barriers for transition-age youth; policy and system-wide reform; and community training and education. In addition, the Alliance is the backbone of the Opportunity Youth Collaborative, which leverages cross-sector and community-based leadership and resources to improve pathways to education and employment for transition-age foster youth.

Charity Navigator has awarded the Alliance its highest 4-star rating for the past seven years in a row. This puts the Alliance in the top 3% of charities in the U.S. rated by Charity Navigator. The 4-star rating reflects the Alliance’s sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.

The Alliance is well known in the child welfare community for its knowledge, expertise, and accomplishments. Alliance staff members and pro bono attorneys are advocates for children who are impoverished, abused and neglected. Being the voice of children who often have no voice, and otherwise could be forgotten, is incredibly rewarding.
