Description

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is one of the nation’s leading policy institutes focusing on federal and state issues that affect low-income families and individuals. It has a national reputation for conducting rigorous research and analysis, developing policy ideas and strategies, shaping a broad array of federal and state policy debates, and influencing policy outcomes. The Center’s expertise spans a range of areas including federal and state budget and tax policy, health care, social insurance, nutrition, housing, income support, and other policies that are important to low-income people. The Center’s funding comes from private foundations and individuals.

The Center has an opening for a full-time writer to join its development department, based in Washington, D.C.

This position is not eligible for remote employment.


This position provides an exciting opportunity for an experienced, talented writer to join a team of skilled writers who help the Center meet its fundraising goals. The development writer must be able to distill complex policy information and the Center’s role in influencing policy decisions into clear, compelling, and easily understandable letters of inquiry, proposals, reports, donor stewardship communications, and other materials that help a range of stakeholders understand the Center’s work. The writer must be able to produce outstanding written work, adapt to the Center’s writing style, and collaborate with other writers on documents as part of a team.


The Development Writer will join an eight-person development department, including a team of three writers, who work closely with senior leaders, program directors, and policy analysts across the Center to understand, and write clearly and persuasively about, the issues and the Center’s current and future work. Responsibilities will also include editing development documents drafted by others, often under tight deadlines. The writer will report to the Director of Foundation Writing.


Candidates must have exceptional writing and editing skills and at least five years of experience in a policy, research, academic, or other non-profit organization. Development experience is preferred. Bachelor’s degree required; related graduate degree desirable.
