The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic and reproductive justice. Together with our members, we advocate for cultural and political change to ensure access for people who face the greatest obstacles to abortion access: women with lower incomes, women of color, young women, and transgender and gender nonconforming people. This is an exciting time for NNAF as we grow and nurture new funds emerging in underserved areas, deepen our support for funds working within the reproductive justice framework, and co-lead a bold national coalition campaign to increase abortion access by restoring Medicaid coverage for abortion. We are working to make access to abortion a reality for everyone, no matter their resources. We are building a movement, mentoring young leaders, and working toward a world in which everyone can shape their own futures and families. We invite you to join us as the newest member of our dedicated and growing team.
NNAF is comprised of a multi-racial, multi-religious, gender expansive staff of 35, located across the United States. We know how important it is to support our remote staff to maintain connection and cohesiveness as a team. To this end, we ensure weekly one-on-one supervision, face-to-face virtual staff meetings, quarterly in-person meetings, and more.
The successful candidate for Grantwriting Manager will be responsible for the coordination and management of institutional funding sources for NNAF, specifically in the area of foundation support as aligned with the mission, vision, values, and strategies of NNAF. Currently, foundation support comprises approximately three-quarters of NNAF’s $8.5 million, and growing, budget.
As the Grantwriting Manager, you have a passion and skill for writing, are excited by the prospect of interpreting big picture concepts into compelling stories of impact and change, and you have a deep appreciation for the importance of thoughtful process as well as effective outcomes. You are a systems thinker who excels at both project management and strategy development, and are energized by curiosity and innovation. You also have a healthy appreciation for deadlines and documentation, and are as comfortable working independently as you are in a team. Like the vibrant fund development team you will be joining, you approach fundraising from a place of abundance, emergence, and as a political act. An abiding commitment to racial, economic, and reproductive justice guides your work as a fundraiser.
