NoVo Foundation
Grants Manager



The NoVo Foundation acts from the original meaning of philanthropy: the love of humanity.

Created in 2006 by Jennifer and Peter Buffett, NoVo is committed to advancing adolescent girls’ rights, ending violence against girls and women, advancing social and emotional learning, promoting local living economies, and supporting Indigenous communities.

We are a social justice foundation dedicated to catalyzing a transformation away from a world based on domination and exploitation, to one of partnership, collaboration, justice, and equity. We envision a world that operates on the principles of mutual respect, collaboration, and civic participation, thereby reversing the old paradigm predicated on hierarchy, violence, and the subordination of girls and women.

The scale of these ambitions guides our work with our grantee partners. Ours is both risk capital and patient capital; experimentation and new thinking are critical paths forward. Seeing the world as it is, and as it could be, inspires our shared work. Through all of our activities, we try to illuminate the possibility of a new paradigm, gather evidence of its existence, and establish pathways for its manifestation. We are humbled and honored to contribute to building a world based on compassion, justice, and love.

About the role - Grants Manager

The Grants Manager will report to the Director of Grants Administration and will be structurally integrated within designated Initiative teams. This deliberate cross-functional configuration is designed to allow the Grants Manager to have a general understanding of the assigned programmatic mission, be aware of priorities, be alerted to developing plans that might be complex from a grants management perspective, and build relationships with Foundation staff and grantee partners, all while implementing best practices in grants management and compliance.

The Grants Manager is responsible for all grants management functions and all daily grant activities, including: inviting and processing incoming applications; working closely with the Finance Team to ensure payments are processed and tracked accurately; supporting the launch of new grantmaking initiatives; and providing Initiative Teams with accurate and timely information related to individual grants and program portfolios. You will work with the Grants Management Team to develop strategies to optimize the grants administration process.
