A Wider Circle is currently expanding its outreach and development efforts, having recently hired a Vice President for Outreach & Development, and is looking for a skilled grant writer to join the team.

The Grant Writer will focus on an expansion of our efforts with respect to both government and private foundation sources and may also help with other professional writing (e.g., marketing or outreach pieces).

You will join a deeply committed team at a time of tremendous growth. We see today as the most significant jumping-off point in our history, though our growth here has been continuous since we began serving in 2001.

At the same time, we know there is much work to be done, as poverty is still not seen in this nation as the crisis that it clearly is.

The successful candidate will have experience in grant writing and be comfortable reaching out to foundations, government grant officers, CSR managers, or the like. Experience in pursuing multi-year, seed, and large program funding is also important.

The Grant Writer will also seek support as we build a collaborative movement in the nation's capital region and across the country - a movement that will elevate poverty to the top of the priority list.


We offer a generous individual benefits package, including health insurance, retirement, and other benefits.
