Foundation Giving Manager

Colorectal Cancer Alliance
Washington, DC
Manager

The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is a national nonprofit organization committed to ending colorectal cancer within our lifetime. The Alliance helps patients, families, survivors, and caregivers navigate diagnosis and treatment options, connects them with those who can share experiences and knowledge and identifies resources to meet their needs. They partner with healthcare professionals and social influencers to raise awareness of preventative screening, and collaborate with researchers to better understand the disease and fund critical research.  The Alliance’s efforts are urgent, effective, and efficient because they believe that tomorrow can’t wait.

Reporting to the Senior Director of Corporate and Foundation Giving, the Foundation Giving Manager will be responsible for researching new foundation prospects, establishing relationships with foundations, writing and submitting grant proposals, securing foundation funding commitments and stewarding foundations to renew support all in an effort to help  us reach our ambitious goal of eradicating colorectal cancer in our lifetime.

It is not an understatement to say that the Foundation Giving Manager will be part of a team responsible for saving thousands of lives and improving countless more. The urgency of the situation due to the 1.4 million people in the US that have this disease requires that we find someone who can deliver results immediately.  The Colorectal Cancer Alliance believes a proven record of securing grant funding and establishing relationships with foundation funders is key to success in this role. It would be helpful for the applicant to have established relationships with current foundations they can bring with them to the Alliance. The ideal candidate will thus be results-oriented and tirelessly committed to the mission of the Alliance.
