Under supervision of the Chief Development Officer, the Grants Manager will be responsible for writing, tracking, and coordinating grant applications and reports and for researching, and stewarding revenue from foundations. They will manage and grow an existing portfolio of institutional funders to help achieve SPUR’s fundraising goals. The Grants Manager works across the region to support our foundation fundraising in San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland — in each of the three cities in which SPUR operates.
We are seeking an experienced development professional with a proven track record of successfully managing all aspects of a foundation and government grants portfolio. A successful candidate will have an acute attention to detail, the ability to prioritize competing deadlines, excellent project management focus, and exceptional communication skills. SPUR’s Grants Manager will be resourceful and work independently, yet collaboratively, at all levels.
