The National Domestic Workers Alliance (www.domesticworkers.org) organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. The Alliance formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents 60+ affiliates in 19 states nationally. NDWA has a partially remote staff, with headquarters in NYC and offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, DC and Oakland. Current members of the Development team are based in New York City, Oakland, and Washington, DC.
NDWA seeks a passionate, process-oriented Development Writer to implement the grant writing process of our growing foundation fundraising program. This person will serve a key support role toward our goal to sustain and grow our philanthropic partnerships to our core programs, and have an opportunity to learn about all aspects of our fundraising while helping to adapt and build systems to meet evolving needs, and working in an exceptionally mission-driven environment. Reporting to the DC-based Deputy Development Director, the Grant Writer is responsible for writing proposals for both unrestricted operating revenue and restricted projects and for submitting timely and accurate reports for all existing grant funded projects, supporting the prospecting and solicitation of new institutional funders, and writing other institutional funder-focused content, as needed. This position will also help adapt these written materials for use with major donors and family foundations.
