Grants and Contracts Manager
Are you looking to be part of a powerful grassroots movement to protect immigrant rights? Would you enjoy joining a vibrant local organization founded and led by Latina immigrant women? If you are fully bilingual, have a knack for data analysis, and want to contribute your skills to a meaningful cause, then you’re in the right place.
Mujeres Unidas y Activas (MUA) is a 28 year-old organization of Latina immigrant women with a dual mission of promoting personal transformation and building power for social and economic justice. We are a safe space for immigrant women to receive the support they need to overcome interpersonal violence, strengthen their leadership, and stand up for their rights. We have offices in San Francisco and Oakland, and a program site in Union City. We are also the fiscal sponsor and anchor organization for the California Domestic Workers Coalition. With 27 staff and an annual budget of just over $3 million, MUA is part of a vibrant statewide and national movement to protect immigrant rights, women’s rights and workers’ rights. We are led by the community we serve: the majority of our staff are immigrants, and Spanish in the dominant language in our offices and all of our programs.
The Grants and Contract Manager helps MUA fulfill its responsibilities to its funders by ensuring the delivery of timely and high quality reports and proposals. The GCM serves primarily as the organizations database administrator, supervising all phases of data entry and analysis. This includes collecting, monitoring and ongoing evaluation of quantitative and qualitative program data to ensure fiscal and programmatic compliance for all contracts. Additionally the position provides assistance with institutional fundraising in coordination with the Development Director.
The Grants and Contracts Manager is part of the FARO (Finanzas, Administración, Recaudación, Operaciones) team. This position reports directly to the Development Director and also works closely with the Finance Director to support fiscal compliance. The Grants and Contracts Manager works regularly with program staff to collect data and updates for grant and contract reports. This position can work from either our San Francisco or Oakland office, and may need to meet with staff at either office depending on the projects due that week.
