For more than 30 years, Rainforest Action Network (RAN) has campaigned to preserve forests, protect the climate and uphold human rights by challenging corporate power and systemic injustice through research, education, partnerships, non-violent direct action, grassroots organizing, strategic campaigns and communications. We are committed to working with Indigenous and frontline communities directly impacted by profit-driven systems of injustice. In partnership with allies from around the world, RAN challenges corporations to stop destructive operations, respect human rights, and adopt policies that reduce their contributions to climate change. RAN is committed to doing what is necessary, not only what is considered politically feasible.
RAN seeks a talented and strategic grant writer with strong project management and communications skills, who is able to work both independently and collaboratively to meet deadlines in a fast-paced fundraising environment. Reporting to the Foundations Director, the Grants Coordinator will play a key role on the three-person Foundations team in RAN’s growing seven-person Development Department. The Grants Coordinator will coordinate deliverables and communication for RAN’s 30+ institutional funders, supporting an annual $3.7M foundation revenue goal out of an $8M annual fundraising budget.
