Job Summary

The 1Million Project (1MP) is a powerful collaboration between Sprint and the 1Million Project Foundation. As a non-profit organization that sits within Sprint, the 1MP’s mission is to transform the lives of low-income students across America by providing devices and internet access to 1 million high students who do not have internet connectivity at home.

We’ve undertaken this effort because we believe all students are curious, want a bright future and are willing to work hard. We also believe students need and deserve the right tools to translate their efforts into meaningful outcomes. For us, these beliefs hold true regardless of family incomes, the color of students’ skin or their gender. Sprint’s 1Million Project exists because although Potential is Everywhere, Opportunity is Not.

More specifically, the Comm Affairs Prog Mgr II will provide fundraising support in the following five areas: funder research; grant writing; grant tracking; meeting prep and support; and regional event support. The Comm Affairs Prog Mgr II is expected to work collaboratively and thoughtfully, in ways that complement a mission-focused orientation; a growth-mindset; a high degree of promptness, professionalism and efficiency; a bias towards action; and a spirit of servant leadership.
