Special Events Coordinators
Special Events Coordinators will plan and ensure the execution of special events/fundraising events that are important for increasing awareness about our organization, our animals, and the important work we are doing for the animals of Milwaukee and that are integral to raising the funds necessary to support that work.
Use your imagination to create fun events our supporters will want to attend and that will attract new people to come learn about our organization and to engage them to be supporters themselves! Special events in the past have included happy hours, car washes, rummage sales, bake sales, etc.
Special Events Coordinators will work together with the Milwaukee Pets Alive Special Events Lead and/or Executive Director to plan and execute at least 12 special events/fundraising events each year (1 per month).
Each MPA Special Event Coordinator will be responsible for (and must be able to commit to) creating/planning/managing at least 1 special event per year and besides attending the event they are in charge of, will also attend and assist at those events planned by the other MPA Special Events Coordinators, engaging with attendees and answering questions about the organization.
Special Events Coordinators and Lead will also head the committee for the planning of an annual organizational major event.
Special Event Coordinators must attend a monthly planning meeting and any additional meetings deemed necessary for proper execution by the Special Events Lead and other Special Events Coordinators. Special Events coordination tasks are done outside of planning meetings on your own or in collaboration with other volunteers.
Looking for motivated, self-starters with initiative and drive and the ability to work independently to work hard in this role for the special animals of our Milwaukee community who are counting on us to save their lives!
Think big! Be creative! Throw great parties where supporters can have fun while doing good!
