Grants Administrator, Development

DESCRIPTION: The Federalist Society is seeking a Grants Administrator for its Development Division. The Grants Administrator’s primary responsibility is to write and send all grant proposals and reports in a timely manner. Organization, ability to meet deadlines, and superior writing skills are essential qualifications for this position. The Grants Administrator will work closely with the Development team and other staff to track incoming grants and reporting requirements. The Grants Administrator will work as a liaison with the program staff in implementing restricted grants. Other tasks will include overseeing the grants calendar, processing and acknowledging donations, and certain portions of the Society’s National Lawyers Convention.

Attention to detail is absolutely crucial for the successful candidate, as the Grants Administrator will oversee the financial and record-keeping side of the development process. Candidate must possess strong communication, writing, and organizational skills. A BA or BS degree from an accredited university or college is required and 1-2 years of experience in non-profit development is preferred. The candidate must have an appreciation for the role of separation of powers, federalism, limited, constitutional government, and the rule of law in protecting individual freedom. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Founded in 1982, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order.  The Society is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.  The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.

If you are interested, please submit an application including a resume, cover letter, and writing sample.
