The Ottawa Paw Pantry is looking to put together a team of volunteers for our Grant Writing committee to help support our mission. The volunteers on this team will help identify grant opportunities, work with the leadership team to gather content for applications, as well as submit applications on our behalf.
Volunteer Grant Writers will be responsible for developing and writing grant proposals to grant-making organizations and will persuasively communicate the Ottawa Paw Pantry’s mission and programs to potential funders. Grant Writers will assemble and submit grant requests, establish and maintain personal contact and relationships with granter contacts, conduct prospect research, and maintain a calendar of submissions and other deadlines.
