About PowerSwitch Action (formerly Partnership for Working Families)

PowerSwitch Action is a national network organizing to realize and build multi-racial feminist democracies in our cities, towns and regions. Together with our 20 affiliates and one regional project we are driving an agenda to bring the billions of dollars in local public investments under the oversight of the communities most impacted, to expand decision making and power to more of the residents in our regions, to support the building and growth of member- based organizations, and to fight when necessary corporate actors who use their power to extract and cause harm to our communities.

We are seeking an experienced Grants Manager to join our team! The ideal candidate will have a deep commitment to social, racial, gender, economic and environmental justice.

Reporting to the Finance and Operations Director, the Grants Manager will be responsible for developing, driving and evaluating the full life cycle of the organization’s grants functions. The Grants Manager is a clear and persuasive writer who can meaningfully lift up our mission, long-term agenda, and work to potential funders, ensuring that our values are at the forefront. A perceptive and careful listener, the Grants Manager is adept at identifying big and small opportunities to strengthen connections between our funders, our work, and our affiliates’ work. The ideal person in this role is an experienced manager of foundation funding that knows how to balance relationships, creativity and systems design.
