Grant Writer (Contract)

The Museum of the Cherokee Indian (MCI) seeks contract assistance for a grant writer. MCI is an instrumentality of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, but not an entity—it is a separate 501c3, and submits grants of all kinds on its own behalf. 

The hours per week will range from 10-20. Work will consist of entire grant cycle including but not limited to applying for new grants, managing currently awarded grants, reporting, compliance, and closeouts. Contractor will work closely with MCI Executive Team to identify funding needs and identify potential grants to meet funding needs. 

The contractor shall demonstrate skills and experience in the following areas: 

  • Applying for and successfully being awarded grants in the range of $250,000 to $5,000,000
  • Gathering information and data to create grant budgets 
  • Grant management  
  • Working with local grantors (e.g. Cherokee Preservation Foundation), federal grantors (e.g. National Endowment for the Arts), and corporate grantors (e.g. Ford Foundation)
  • Grant experience working with federally recognized tribes

MCI will offer a flat contract rate between $40 and $60/hour. When grants allow, the contractor shall fully fund or subsidize the contractor’s administration costs within the grant.
