Position Description

The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center preserves and interprets Stowe’s Hartford home and the Center’s historic collections, promotes vibrant discussion of her life and work, and inspires commitment to social justice and positive change, through programs like the Stowe House tour, the award-winning Salons at Stowe, author talks, and field trips. The Center is a nontraditional museum where visitors connect the past to the present by discussing nineteenth-century issues that resonate today. The Stowe Center’s strategic plan includes expanding its base of support through individual giving, grant funding, and planned giving. The Grants Manager will play a significant role in enacting this plan and will work closely with the Center’s Director of Development, Executive Director, and Financial Consultant, as well as program staff, to develop and write grant proposals, oversee the continued management of grant funds, monitor project milestones, and prepare final reports for funders.
