Management Services Provider - Puget Sound Grant Writers Association
Posted by NPL Connects on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 3:16 PM PDT
Puget Sound Grantwriters Association, a nonprofit membership organization that serves hundreds of nonprofit professionals in Western Washington State with educational and networking resources that include 15-18 events each year, seeks an entity or individual to provide management services. This provider will work closely with dedicated volunteers, including the Board of Directors, to extend and add to a tradition of excellence in programming and service to the community. Proposals should demonstrate skills needed for membership-association management, including a high level of proficiency in event coordination; experience with database, website, and other technologies; effective collaboration with volunteers; and understanding of nonprofit financial management. A provider may be able to satisfy part of the requirement for financial management or other areas by indicating that the organization should use a subcontractor. (It is preferred that the provider identify any such subcontractor, provide a statement of qualifications, and cite prior successful collaboration. However, it is acceptable for the provider to describe a plan for securing an as-yet-unidentified subcontractor.
The ideal provider will appreciate and effectively manage a flexible work schedule. (Note: communications with PSGA volunteers may occur outside business hours, within reason.) The daily/weekly hours required to fulfill the work contract will depend on event timing and other factors, but based on recent years of operations, we anticipate that the provider will need to expend up to 600 hours in a calendar year. Special projects (for example, technology transition or upgrades; tax preparation services) will be considered separately from this contract. NOTE: The organization does not wish to hire an individual already committed to, or planning to commit to, other paid work totaling 32+ hours per week. See Scope of Work for more details on the position.
