compensation: Compensation will be commensurate with the successful candidate's experience.
employment type: full-time

You are drawn to meaningful endeavors. Having worked or volunteered for charitable causes, you are intrigued by the possibility of obtaining a mid-level position on the grant-making side of the nonprofit field.

A doer by nature, you roll up your sleeves and enjoy tackling the day-to-day tasks necessary to produce excellent programs. Your strong interpersonal skills enable you to interact with a variety of constituencies, from colleagues and grant-seekers to trustees and high-level volunteers. Not only a gifted communicator, you are a highly organized coordinator who manages multiple projects while operating swiftly and with grace and accuracy.

One of the most stable commercial real estate firms in the country, Cummings Properties is driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, a belief in collaboration, and a dedication to giving back to the community. For nearly 50 years, our firm has operated - and thrived - with a fast-paced, non-bureaucratic culture that emphasizes open communication, innovative thinking, and meticulous attention to detail.

Cummings Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in New England, has awarded more than $200 million in funding to Greater Boston nonprofits. With significant assistance from Cummings Properties' staff and dozens of volunteers, it seeks to bolster the important work of local charities through the $100K for 100 and Sustaining Grants programs.

The primary responsibility of the grants and communications specialist will be to collaborate with colleagues to implement Cummings Foundation's grants programs. As an employee of Cummings Properties, s/he will likely also play a role in some communications and marketing initiatives unrelated to philanthropy.

Typical responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:
• Serving as a liaison with grant applicants and Foundation trustees and volunteers
• Planning committee meetings and grant program celebrations
• Drafting e-newsletters and committee updates
• Using CyberGrants, an online grants management system, to view applicant information

Candidates must reside in the greater Woburn area and have a college degree and at least three years of full-time relevant professional work experience.

Qualified applicants should email a resume and tailored cover letter to Joyce V. at Resumes not accompanied by cover letters will not be considered.
