From Juma Ventures:
Juma Ventures strives to break the cycle of poverty by paving the way to work, education and financial capability for youth across America. Founded in 1993 with a single Ben & Jerry’s Shop in San Francisco, Juma’s initial business, a social enterprise, was designed to give homeless youth the training and job experience they needed to transition from living on the streets to enjoying a stable adulthood. Since then, Juma has become a nationally recognized youth development organization focused on employment, financial capability, and career supportive services.
Juma has experienced unprecedented growth over the last five years, expanding to six U.S. cities. Today, Juma operates over 20 concession businesses and in 2020 will employ over 800 youth at major sports and entertainment venues across the United States (Atlanta, Houston, Sacramento, San Francisco, Santa Jose, Seattle).
Juma is searching for an experienced, methodical, and strategic Grants Manager to serve as a key member of our Development team in managing the Institutional Giving strategy for Juma’s Atlanta and Houston sites. Duties for the Grants Manager will include managing overall grant efforts, conducting prospect research, optimizing the grant administration process, overseeing and owning funder relationships, preparing progress reports, ensuring compliance with grant regulations, reviewing grant proposals, managing grant databases (Salesforce), and engaging with donor agencies. Reporting to the Associate Director of Institutional Giving, the Grant Manager will work closely with the Houston and Atlanta teams and across departments to collect supporting information for grant proposals and reports, and maintain key resources such as up-to-date research and grant language.
