Dear W.R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust,
I am writing to express my interest in the Senior Grant Officer position. Based on the job description and my five years of professional experience, I believe that I am the ideal candidate for this role.
In my previous positions, I have been responsible for identifying and vetting prospective grantees, conducting evaluation and assessment site visits of prospective grantees, and building strong relationships with grantees. I have also attended Board of Trustee meetings and presented grant evaluation assessments and grant applications. My experience has taught me how to represent a trust with integrity and engage with a wide array of stakeholders – including grantees, other philanthropic leaders, and thought leaders – to understand the opportunities and challenges within the Trust’s philanthropic priorities.
Given my experience in evaluating grants and working with a variety of stakeholders, I am confident that I can be an asset to your team. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications in further detail at an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration
