Grants Writer, Pendle Hill – May 27

Posted by Pendle Hill on May 10, 2022

PENDLE HILL is a Quaker study, retreat, and conference center that seeks to create peace with justice in the world by transforming lives through learning opportunities, retreat, and community created on our beautiful 24-acre campus in unceded Lenni-Lenape territory and in virtual settings. At Pendle Hill we commit to being a living testimony to a social order that manifests God’s love for everyone. We work to be inclusive, respectful, and supportive of all people. We strive courageously for peace and justice.

This is a highly collaborative staff community featuring responsive leadership and partial work-from-home arrangements for office-based employees. Community-building among staff is highly prized with monthly fun activities as part of staff meeting and two longer staff retreat days a year for fun, growth, and connection among all staff. The monthly community work morning provides variety with the opportunity to lend a hand on another team’s project or lead one for staff in your own work area. Learn more about Pendle Hill.

POSITION SUMMARY: The Grants Writer is primarily responsible for identifying and securing grant resources (from foundations and other grant-making entities). This is an exciting position, with the opportunity to grow a foundation program and gain broad experience in the fundraising profession.
