Foundation Relations Manager

Foundation Relations Manager

Build a Grants Program that will Change the World

The Good Food Institute (GFI) is on the forefront of the movement to use food technology and markets to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change and global hunger to antibiotic efficacy and the exploitation of billions of farm animals annually. As a nonprofit, our work is only possible thanks to the support of a large community of passionate supporters. GFI’s Foundation Relations Manager will inspire the generosity of our supporters by developing a robust and vibrant foundation grants program. By securing philanthropic grants, and creating and sustaining strong, long-term relationships with grantors, your work will directly impact how quickly we can transform the global food system with the latest innovations in plant-based and “clean meat,” dairy, and eggs.

How You Will Make a Difference

GFI is 100% supported by philanthropy, and we have only scratched the surface of our fundraising potential. As our Foundation Relations Manager, you will be responsible for building a grants program that will fuel our work to transform animal agriculture, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve natural resources, and prevent animal suffering on a massive scale by:

  • Leading all aspects of GFI’s grants-seeking program: drafting compelling cases for support, grant requests, acknowledgement correspondence, and progress reports.
  • Researching philanthropic grant funding opportunities, for both general support of GFI’s mission and program-specific funding opportunities.
  • Creating and maintaining a detailed annual grant-seeking calendar, documenting all deadlines for LOIs, proposals, and progress reports.
  • Building strong, meaningful, long-term relationships with our foundation grantors to maintain and expand their continued support while constantly growing the circle of prospective funders.
  • Preparing and submitting funding proposals and stewardship reports, working closely with program staff as needed.

Who We're Looking For

We are seeking smart, thoughtful, and creative self-starters who want to push back against climate change, transform industrialized animal agriculture, and develop healthy and humane foods that are accessible to everyone.

This role requires an outgoing and friendly personality, excellent written and verbal communication skills, the capacity to work independently and effectively under the pressure of constant deadlines, enthusiasm for GFI’s mission, and adherence to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle.

Above all, you need to have significant experience writing compelling fundraising proposals and progress reports. You will enjoy a high level of autonomy in this role and must be self-motivated, work well both independently and in concert with a larger group, and be comfortable working within a rapidly evolving and growing team.

We are considering candidates with a college degree and a minimum of five years of previous development experience, including two years working in a foundations relations/grant-seeking capacity or equivalent work with leadership donors. This is a remote position; you should be willing to travel occasionally with some evening and weekend work.

Enjoy full medical coverage, optional dental and vision packages, a 401(k) retirement plan, working from home, flexible holiday and vacation plans, room for advancement, respectful managers, and supportive colleagues at The Good Food Institute!

Learning Objectives: The primary learning objectives are for the intern to develop a working understanding of the science of clean meat and to gain experience designing science curricula.

Compensation: This internship is unpaid.

 

Project Description

How to Get Started

The first step will likely be to gauge interest among the target audience (teachers and academic summer programs) and to determine preferences with regards to materials provided, depth of the material for the target age, length of the module, amount of out-of-classroom material, and which science topics should be emphasized for justification of inclusion within the curriculum for that year. This can be assessed by reaching out to teachers in various school districts to ascertain their interest as well as any restrictions they may have (for example, if they are allotted very little time to bring in new material that is not strictly in line with local mandated curricula), and by contacting academic summer programs (like CTY at Johns Hopkins, ASRA at UA Fairbanks, Science Discovery at CU Boulder, TIP at Duke, Academic Connections at UC San Diego, etc.) to probe their interest and gather their program details (classroom hours, access to lab facilities, etc.).

Once you have a feel for the interest, needs, and constraints of your target audiences, draw upon literature in active learning techniques to develop an engaging series of lesson plans customized to the students’ learning level. Include assessments that will allow the teachers to gauge understanding along the way. It will likely be helpful to identify a set of mentors (current teachers at the various target grade levels would be ideal) willing to advise on the curriculum development along the way. For technical explanations and clarifications, you can either consult the primary literature or ask questions of GFI’s science and technology team along the way. We can also reach out to the broader clean meat research and commercialization community to see if they have interest in developing some lessons or experiments for incorporation into these modules, as this will likely be seen as a welcome resource by the whole community.

What We’re Looking For 

The goal at the outcome of this project is to produce a set of educational curriculum modules that include classroom material (detailed lesson plans), student assignments, comprehension tests, and grading rubrics when appropriate. The more components that are available, the more likely they are to be used by teachers as they will require no additional work, for example to create accompanying assessments. The modules will also including learning objectives that tie in relevance to common state-mandated topics for science curricula. These materials will be freely available on the GFI website to any teacher who would like to utilize them, and they will be promoted through various educational networks and programs. Promotion and dissemination of the materials may be incorporated into this internship, or may be taken on by the GFI communications team and/or science and technology team, depending on the availability and interests of the intern.

Modules will be targeted at multiple educational levels – ideally, at least one middle school-targeted module and one high school-targeted module. An elementary module would also be great, but is lower priority. The modules should span approximately a week of classroom time within a standard science period, although it may be appropriate to develop multiple modules with varying depth if it is anticipated that teachers would like to spend more or less time than a week on this material.

Ideally, at least one module will incorporate a laboratory component. This module may be more appropriate for the academic summer camp programs as these tend to be small class sizes, highly motivated students, and highly intensive programs with greater access to laboratory space and equipment. If there are simple and low-cost hands-on components that can be incorporated into the classroom modules, that is great – either with lab materials, or activities that simulate experiments or concepts in an engaging, student-centered way.

Why This Information is Important 

Developing curricula on clean meat is critical on two fronts: first, this spurs interest and exposes students to the skills and expertise they would need to contribute to the development of this field – thus, it provides a jump-start for the next generation of clean meat researchers and entrepreneurs. Because the skills needed within this field are interdisciplinary by nature (spanning food science, engineering, and biology), students will be in a position of proactively ensuring they can develop the skills they need to contribute; therefore, early exposure is a critical part of empowering students to seek proper training in college and beyond. 

Secondly, early exposure to the concept and a clear understanding of the techniques underlying the development of clean meat provides a vehicle for increasing consumer acceptance of these products when they come to market. Thus, these aims are crucial for the long-term success and viability of clean meat, both for its development to come to fruition and for its ability to gain sizable market share from sustained consumer demand.
