As a member of the Breastcancer.org team, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a diverse and talented group of people doing extraordinary work together. We believe in celebrating our unique differences and coming together for our shared goal of empowering millions worldwide with life-saving information and support. Whatever your role at Breastcancer.org, you are a valued and respected member of the team lending your talents to a vitally important mission.
Breastcancer.org is a nonprofit organization founded in 2000 by breast oncologist Marisa C. Weiss, M.D., and born out of her conviction that people with breast cancer need more information and support than a doctor's visit can provide. Our mission is to help people make sense of the complex medical and personal information about breast health and breast cancer, so they can make the best decisions for their lives. We believe that everyone should have access to expert guidance to help them navigate the vast and multilayered breast cancer information, treatment, and research available. To this end, we develop award-winning expert-vetted information in a variety of formats and host the oldest moderated breast cancer peer-support community.
Breastcancer.org is at an exciting point in our organization’s history — transforming our website, undertaking new initiatives to reach a growing audience, and launching new patient-insight programs to engage our large breast cancer community. We are searching for someone passionate about our mission who can manage and expand our grants portfolio among industry, corporations, and foundations. Reporting to the associate director, partnerships and programs, and working closely with Breastcancer.org’s programmatic, marketing, and operations teams, the grants manager will manage the entire grants lifecycle from prospect research to reporting, and project manage small-scale grant-funded projects. Breastcancer.org is looking for someone who can grow alongside our evolution, who is flexible but pushes back when needed, and who thrives working both individually and collaboratively.
