Grants Manager
Fort Collins Museum of Discovery
Fort Collins, Colorado
Salary Range: $38,000–$55,000

Fort Collins Museum of Discovery (FCMoD), is a unique public/private partnership that engages visitors in an innovative learning environment. As Northern Colorado’s only AAM-accredited museum (American Alliance of Museums), and only ASTC-affiliated museum (Association of Science and Technology Centers), FCMoD occupies a pivotal space in the cultural and educational life of our region and creates extraordinary opportunities for visitors to engage with experiences that explore the interplay of science and culture in ways that are deeply relevant to our community, our geography, and our shared history.

The Grants Manager is responsible for developing and managing a pipeline of current and prospective grant funders that align with the museum’s priorities. Through planned research, identification, development, cultivation, stewardship, compliance, and reporting activities, the Manager will submit proposals and manage awards in support of the museum’s mission and operating goals.

FCMoD promotes a team environment where curiosity, not certainty, informs our work. The Grants Manager will utilize this mindset to successfully cultivate relationships, foster collaboration, and support a culture of trust with colleagues, partners, and funders.

Interested applicants can apply by filling out the Grants Manager application at fcmod.org/jobs.

Applicants should be prepared to upload a digital cover letter, resume, three professional references, and a writing sample. If there is a need, materials can be submitted to Michael Allison, Director of Development, at mallison@fcmod.org.
