You believe people want to come together to care for the most vulnerable, yet they struggle to know who to help and how to connect.  You know that children shouldn't pay the highest price when families face extreme hardships, and you want to see the Church and the Community come together to care together.  Colleagues would describe you as a gifted communicator with a strong attention to detail. Your ability to craft clear and compelling written communications positions you to help foundations, government, businesses, and other institutions understand, believe, and financially engage in our work.


CarePortal (CP) is a connecting technology that drives action for local kids and families in crisis. We subscribe to the vision that through the Church and Community, there can be more than enough care for kids before, during, and beyond foster care. The goal is the transformation from child welfare to family well-being in the lives of hurting children/families, the Church, and the Community. We develop robust Care-Sharing Networks and lead with Courage, Humility, and Excellence.


Over the last few years, CarePortal has been in rapid growth mode, and we are ready to expand our Institutional Fundraising capabilities to support this growth—that’s where you come in.


You believe fundraising is an opportunity to invite others to invest in the lives of children and families. You enjoy collaborating with others to raise and steward the institutional funding and relationships necessary to operate and grow CarePortal in order to serve more children and families through the Church and Community. You will work closely with our field team to identify grants and institutional funding opportunities, cultivate relationships, write and submit grant applications and proposals, and service and steward those relationships with excellence.


At CarePortal (CP), we believe that children belong in the care of healthy, loving families.  And that families should be supported by a local church and caring members of their community.  You are ready to put your expertise to work for a mission you care deeply about.  Join us, and let’s get started as we go all out to close the front door of the foster care system in our nation.
