Grant Coordinators and Writers
The employment outlook for grant coordinators and writers is good. Overall charitable giving has slowly increased over the last several years, but hundreds of agencies are applying for the same grants—which has resulted in strong competition for funding. A top grant coordinator or writer can make the difference between the organization that gets the funding and the one that does not. A grant coordinator who has proven success in coordinating grants proposals and obtaining grants, as well as a grant writer who has written successful proposals, should be able to find work. Many people who work in nonprofit organizations believe that more grant coordinators and writers will be hired as more of these organizations realize that a professional grant administrator may help them get funding they have been missing. The grant coordinator's knowledge of how to choose the most appropriate sources of grant funding and implement funding programs is invaluable to nonprofit organizations.
