About Trevor
The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for  LGBTQ young people. We are a non-profit that provides 24/7 life-saving support via phone, text, and  chat. We also operate the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth and run  innovative research, education, and advocacy programs. We’ve been saving lives every day for over 20 years.

Overview of the role
The Director of Foundation and Government Grants is responsible for the creation and management of an ambitious plan to develop sustainable institutional foundation and government grants that fund The Trevor Project’s mission to end LGBTQ youth suicide globally. The Director will manage a diverse team of 3, the strategic direction and implementation of a rapidly growing Institutional revenue program, and build scalable processes and systems that enable efficiency and collaboration. This individual will have an individual fundraising goal and oversee their team's growing portfolio of national and global foundations and government agencies that are primed to fund Trevor’s life-saving work.

Who you are

  • Action-Oriented. You know how to get things done. You prioritize efficiency and keep things  moving forward. You are experienced enough to spot problems, and develop plans to solve them.
  • Exceptional Communicator. You are direct and concise. You speak and write clearly,  eloquently, and with a situation-appropriate tone to make sure others understand you and you understand them. You know how to communicate in order to effectively collaborate. You can give a strong pitch exciting others to join your cause.
  • Collaborative. You understand that the best way to meet and exceed goals is through  outstanding teamwork. You have experience working with cross-departmental leaders to  partner with you on org-wide projects. You have the ability to cultivate relationships up, down, and across in an organization through trust and respect. You have demonstrated experience navigating complex people management challenges with empathy and clarity.
  • Experienced. You’re an expert fundraiser with deep knowledge of stewarding Foundations and Government funders. You have brought in multiple six-figure grants and have experience with CRM databases such as Salesforce to inform your strategy.  You have demonstrated the ability to network in esteemed philanthropy circles to drive mission awareness and support
  • Goal-oriented. You’re not afraid to set ambitious goals and create thoughtful plans to  achieve them. You get excited about developing strategy to reach those goals for yourself and your team. You understand the complexity of what is needed to reach certain goals and how to advocate for those needs.
  • Detail-oriented. You sweat the small stuff. You make sure that your work sets the standard for excellence and what is expected from those around you. You are highly organized, and able to focus on the details as you look at the big picture.
  • Strategic. You love to come up with big bold ideas. You know that what worked for one organization might not work for another and know how to integrate old strategies with new  ones. You are entrepreneurial and look at the way things are and then imagine 20 ways they can be improved.
  • Flexible. You are comfortable navigating ambiguity, pushing for what you need when necessary, and working through competing priorities. You are an independent leader, able to work autonomously and effectively in a fast paced environment.
  • Passionate. You care about LGBTQ youth and mental health. You care about saving lives. You  want to come to work and feel inspired every day. You want to change the world.
  • Fun. The work we do is very serious, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. We know how to  have a good time and you should too.

What you'll do

  • Develop and execute an ambitious multi-year strategic plan to raise significant funding from existing and new institutional foundations and government agencies.
  • Focus on complex, big-picture strategy, building processes and systems to streamline work and envision a growing department able to sustain significant growth in future years.

  • Manage a team of three including two direct reports to maximize the impact of your department's work. Activate their strengths to reach goals through regular coaching, mentorship, and feedback.
  • Set excellent standards for success for your team and oversee the stewardship of all partners from prospecting to granting to renewals.
  • Work across departments, particularly finance and program teams, to ensure compliance with  grant terms and restrictions and to develop budget documents and solicitation materials.
  • Other tasks, duties, or special projects as assigned

Benefits

  • Fun virtual office environment and passionate team
