Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
In the last two years Living Goods rapidly scaled our impact and size to reach more almost seven million people across the developing world. We are on a rapid growth trajectory and our path to success requires changing the way local governments, the biggest non-governmental organizations, and public and private funders plan, finance, and deliver community health. To make this a reality, Living Goods will need to raise an ambitious level of funds.
At Living Goods, you will have the chance to use your creativity and work with your teammates to innovate and test new ideas every day. We think big, but we operate small and nimble. If you work well in a dynamic, collaborative culture, if you set high standards, if you know how to fail fast and learn fast, if you meet challenges with determination and a sense of humor, you will thrive at Living Goods.
We are seeking a highly capable and motivated Grant and Donor Communications Writer to serve as a key member of our fundraising team. You will be responsible for developing funding proposals, producing reports and other donor communications materials, and writing and editing content about Living Goods’ work and impact. After receiving in-depth exposure to our programs and becoming an expert in our work, this individual will soon be writing proposals and reports for our strategic funding partners. You will help our development team operate efficiently to win new awards, streamline our writing and reporting processes, and ensure we’re communicating effectively with our key stakeholders.
