CASA of Los Angeles (CASA/LA) mobilizes community volunteers to advocate for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The organization envisions a Los Angeles in which every child in the child welfare system has an advocate and the opportunity to thrive. CASA/LA is on a path to expand services to 12,000 of the estimated 30,000 children in the LA County’s dependency system every year. Key to these efforts is growth in the number of people who know about CASA/LA, the number of volunteers recruited and trained each year, and revenue generated from individuals, foundations, corporations and government sources.
We are in need of a Grant Writer to review, submit and track grant applications and reports for CASA of Los Angeles with support from the Director of Strategic Initiatives. CASA of Los Angeles raises over $2 million annually in private foundation funding and government funding. Our goal is to increase current grant-making by 30% over the next three years. As part of the position, the Grant Writer will research and develop submission strategies for new foundation and government funding. Previous grant writing experience is required.
Please be prepared to present samples that represent your skills. Position is approximately 10-15 hours per week, and will report to Director of Strategic Initiatives. This position is primarily remote with the exception of occasional meetings at the Monterey Park office. Please send a resume and cover letter.
