Grant Writer (Part Time)
The GO Project provides innovative, partnership-based year-round educational and family support programs for under-resourced, low-income, and academically struggling New York City public school children at the earliest stages of their development. For more than 50 years, GO has equipped thousands of children with the confidence and skills needed to perform at or above grade level, enroll in high-performing middle and high schools, graduate on time, and achieve post-secondary success.
Founded in 1968 by a committed group of volunteers who were struck by a confluence of need and resources in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the first program served 30 under-resourced second grade public school students in donated space at Grace Church School. By harnessing New York’s physical, financial, and intellectual resources, GO has grown into a $3.3 million organization serving 725 students in grades K-8 from more than 50 public school partners in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The GO Project’s whole community approach engages public schools who provide information and partnership around student challenges and progress, parents and caregivers who ensure their child’s active participation, 200 dedicated educational faculty from across the city who lead our classrooms on Saturdays and over the summer, 25 non-profits and higher education institutions that supplement service delivery, and nearly 1,000 volunteer mentors and tutors who help to ensure a 1:4 adult to student classroom ratio. GO leverages six private school partnerships to provide space and resource sharing over the summer and Saturdays during the school year.
Job Summary
As GO looks to expand its footprint in New York City, the organization seeks a seasoned part-time Grant Writer. Reporting to the Chief Development Officer (CDO), he/she will write proposals and reports for GO’s current portfolio of institutional donors and conduct new prospect research. The Grant Writer must possess exceptional writing and proof reading skills and have a demonstrated knowledge of the New York City funding community. In addition, this person will stay up to date on statistics and literature relevant to GO that can be incorporated into funding proposals and reports.

  • Assist CDO in managing the grants calendar and ensure that new and renewed proposals, reports and other materials are submitted on time.
  • Ensure a strong pipeline of new foundation and corporation prospects through ongoing research.
This is a part-time, remote position (approximately 25 hours per month).
