Grants Manager

The Meyer Foundation is working toward a vision of a just, connected, and inclusive Greater Washington community in which systemic racism and its consequences no longer exist. We support organizations that are building power to achieve a racially and economically just Greater Washington region.

Meyer annually approves approximately 175 grants totaling more than $9 million and manages grants and reporting with over 200 active grantee partners. Meyer’s grants management team designs and coordinates grantmaking processes and practices that are foundational to how Meyer lives its values and pursues its mission.

Cultivating a team that embodies the diverse experiences of the Greater Washington region is essential to our mission and values. We strongly and sincerely encourage applications from people of color/of the global majority, immigrant, bilingual, and bicultural individuals; people with disabilities; members of LGBTQIA+ and gender non-conforming communities; and people with other diverse backgrounds and lived experiences.


We seek to hire a Grants Manager to manage Meyer’s grantmaking process in a way that aligns with our mission, values, and strategies. The person in this position will work collaboratively with staff across the Foundation to ensure timely and thorough completion of all stages of workflows from initial inquiry and application to award, payment, reporting, and closeout. The Grants Manager ensures data integrity, facilitates the use of technology to support grantmaking, and provides transparency and accessibility about grants information for staff and external partners. This full-time exempt position works in close collaboration with and reports directly to the Grants Director.

We are seeking someone who has experience with grants management and philanthropy. A strong candidate will be an analytical thinker, a problem-solver who is curious and excited about digging into data, and a skilled communicator, able to access and interpret data, and communicate with and train various audiences.
