California: CoFed seeks Temporary Grant Writer

13 Jul

The Cooperative Food Empowerment Directive (CoFed) is a network and training program that inspires and equips college students to create hubs for sustainable, local food education and access on their campus. Over the last year and a half, we’ve helped over 15 teams begin to launch cooperative cafes and have been identified by the fast food industry as viable competition on college campuses.  We’ve been featured in Good Magazine, the Huffington Post, and our director has been recognized as a Slow Money entrepreneur.

CoFed is seeking a part-time, as-needed, grant-writer to draft and polish initial letters of inquiry and grants to  medium-sized and family foundations.  A quick hand,  an understanding of sustainable food, health, environmental and educational funding are preferred.

Requires excellent communication, both verbal and written.  Potential for full-time work and professional development.

Bay Area residents encouraged to apply.

Email a cover letter, resume and example grant to development@cofed.org

Start date: As soon as possible (July 2011)

Compensation: Part-time, temporary, per hour or per page, rate dependent on experience
