The Alliance for Children’s Rights has an exciting opportunity for an experienced development leader to provide oversight and execution of a fundraising program for one of the most well-regarded nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles. The Chief Development Officer will be a hard-working fundraiser with a track record of building and sustaining relationships and raising funds from a variety of sources.


The Alliance for Children’s Rights protects the rights of impoverished, abused and neglected children and youth. Our lawyers, advocates and social workers, together with hundreds of pro bono attorneys and community volunteers, ensure that children have safe, permanent homes and can access the healthcare, education and financial supports that they need. We also help transition-age youth achieve self-sufficiency, and work statewide to improve child welfare practices and policies in order to remove the many barriers our clients face. Since 1992, we have helped over 150,000 children.

The breadth of the Alliance’s work is impressive, and it keeps the Grants Manager job interesting and fulfilling. It includes foster care adoption; legal guardianship; education; benefits; healthcare; removing barriers for transition-age youth; policy and system-wide reform; and community training and education. In addition, the Alliance is the backbone of the Opportunity Youth Collaborative, which leverages cross-sector and community-based leadership and resources to improve pathways to education and employment for transition-age foster youth.

Charity Navigator has awarded the Alliance its highest 4-star rating for the past seven years in a row. This puts the Alliance in the top 3% of charities in the U.S. rated by Charity Navigator. The 4-star rating reflects the Alliance’s sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.

The Alliance is well known in the child welfare community for its knowledge, expertise, and accomplishments. Alliance staff members and pro bono attorneys are advocates for children who are impoverished, abused and neglected. Being the voice of children who often have no voice, and otherwise could be forgotten, is incredibly rewarding.
