WE’RE HIRING A GRANTS & COMMUNITY INITIATIVES MANAGER!
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Grants & Community Initiatives Manager provides management, administration, and support to three distinct areas of the DeKalb County Community Foundation: Grantmaking and Scholarship Administration, DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership, and Youth Engaged in Philanthropy.
In filling a vacancy and consolidating some other functions, we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and passionate about their work and who can very efficiently and effectively deliver on tasks that are critical to the success of the Foundation’s programs. This individual, while largely working behind the scenes, must also gain the trust and confidence of nonprofit and other stakeholders in the community with a professional demeanor. The successful candidate will easily and effectively flow between every day detailed tasks with oversight by three different Foundation staff members.
The preferred candidate will have familiarity with DeKalb County. Previous project management experience, excellent communication and computer skills are required. Base salary range for this FT position is $40,000 – $45,000/year depending on experience. Benefits include paid time off, company matched retirement contributions, and a very rewarding work experience. Please note that the Foundation does not provide or sponsor a health insurance plan for employees or their dependents. However, the Foundation does offer alternate compensation to eligible full-time regular employees in lieu of a health insurance plan. This benefit is effective upon hiring (and prorated), available without restriction to all eligible employees, and is given as additional salary/wages (taxable income) to employees above their base salary.
