We’re Hiring for Our Grantseeking Team!





As you may know, Writing to Make a Difference focuses on both grantseeking and content development. Right now, we are looking to add a few excellent sub-contractors to our team to help complete client work on grant proposals or reports on a variety of topics. Might you be the person we are seeking?


  • Expand your client base without having to attract or manage client relationships or engage in business development
  • Opportunity to deepen your knowledge on a variety of (possibly new) topics
  • Opportunity to accept or decline any specific assignment without jeopardizing an entire client relationship
  • Opportunities for professional feedback, dialogue, and collaboration


  • At least 8 years of successful experience writing grant proposals and/or reports for foundations, corporate funders, and/or government agencies (experience as an independent consultant preferred)
  •  Availability 5-15 hours per month for at least 3-6 months, with an interest in potential long-term affiliation
  • Content knowledge in your area/s of expertise and/or resourcefulness to get up to speed quickly
  •  Strong writing, storytelling, editing, proofreading skills
  • Ethics/integrity/reliability (including avoidance of conflicts of interest)
  • Strong listening/interviewing skills
  • Budgeting and/or funder prospect research skills a plus


  • Clients work with Dalya to agree on a foundation/corporate/other funder grants calendar (1 or more months in advance). She then offers subcontractors a list of assignments/due dates for the month, with at least 1-2 weeks’ notice (exceptions will occur infrequently). You then will accept or reject the opportunities, based on your availability.
  • The initial trial period will be for 3 months, with the potential to take on more assignments from select client accounts once you are very familiar with them and their needs.
  • You will most likely communicate directly with the client about assigned projects. In the beginning it will be alongside Dalya.
