Fundraising & Development Lead needed!

Milwaukee Pets Alive isn’t just another rescue. We are here to shape rescue. Join us as our Fundraising & Development Lead (leader of our Fundraising & Development Team) - a part of our Leadership Team! There’s never been a better time to volunteer with us if you are looking to be a part of something bigger than yourself - help us as we work towards building a sanctuary so we can serve even MORE special animals and make SE WI No Kill! This is a monumental undertaking and we are looking for TEAMMATES to make this vision a reality! Fundraising and development is going to be critical in building and maintaining this center to help so many lives! Please give your skills and talents to help in this effort!

The Fundraising & Development Lead is a leadership role and the individual will be an ambassador of the MPA organization, creating a community - both internal and external - that emphasizes the important work we do for the special animals we serve and exemplifies how each volunteer’s active involvement helps us achieve more for more precious lives. Our leadership volunteers each lead and manage one piece of the organization. Our leadership volunteers together (the Leadership Team) orchestrate an amazing whole doing great works in our community...and our world! The Fundraising & Development Lead should enjoy working and speaking with people, building relationships, and acknowledging the good work and contributions of others!

The funds necessary to care for the special needs and considerations animals we rescue are significant in our current model of rescue. With facilities, it will be exponentially so. Fundraising and development are crucial to the execution of the life-saving work we do and want to do with the sanctuary!

The Fundraising & Development Lead will:

  • In collaboration with the Leadership Team, develop an annual fundraising and development plan to meet organizational goals and further the mission of the organization.
  • Cultivate and form relationships with new and potential donors (both individual and corporate) who recognize the importance of the work we are doing for animals in Southeast WI.
  • Nurture relationships with long-term donors and show our appreciation.
  • Explore and secure more online giving options.
  • Build our Recurring/Monthly giving program.
  • Connect with businesses to encourage workplace giving among employees.
  • Develop estate planning options.
  • Encourage donors to look into employer matching to double their impact.
  • Research foundations that have applicable funds to our work.
  • Be a part of the capital campaign for the sanctuary.
  • Send out appeal letters to donors.
  • Distribute acknowledgement letters and tax receipts to donors.
  • Oversee donation box program.
  • Oversee our inkind donations program.
  • Manage Fundraising & Development Team volunteers coordinating various fundraisers and development activities.
  • Communicate with all members of the MPA Fundraising & Development Team regularly to answer questions and make sure all are actively engaged and regularly working on components of the fundraising and development plan, and that they are appreciated for their hard work!
  • Will coordinate any additional meetings for Fundraising & Development Team or other volunteers as needed for proper planning and execution of components of the fundraising & development plan they are working on or for collaboration on projects.
  • Research different community fundraising opportunities.
  • Oversee grant writers.
  • Participate in once-monthly Leadership Team meetings.

Volunteer tasks are done around the volunteer’s own schedule - when it’s convenient for you - morning, day, or night - though some tasks will involve the occasional coordination of your schedule with the schedule of others (such as for meetings, phone calls, etc.).

Fundraising/development experience preferred though not required if candidate possesses other leadership experience and has a strong drive/passion for development and fundraising.

We are looking for one person to fill this role. The right individual will strongly believe in our mission, vision, and core values and have a sincere interest in elevating our organization, extending our reach, and growing with us (so commitment and dedication are important).

We are an entirely volunteer-run rescue. Everything you see was created and accomplished by a volunteer! We have no employees, so all volunteers should be self-motivated, be a self-starter with initiative, drive, ambition, and are able to work independently. One of the general qualities we look for in any teammate in this rescue are those who are "Go-Givers" - people who want to make a difference in the world and for others and know the greatest impact we make is often not the work we are paid to do in our 9-5, but that what we choose to do because in our hearts, we want to make others' time on this planet easier and better! How our organization is structured requires that all volunteers be able to accept direction to produce cohesive messaging, vision, results, and practices consistent with that of the overall organization as a whole and then take that direction to lead in the execution of their piece of the organization. Individual must be able to follow through on their commitments. The Fundraising & Development Lead should also be personable and organized to stay on top of managing relationships and always letting them know how much they mean to us - we would not exist, and cannot build this sanctuary, without donors! MPA is looking for a volunteer to fill this role who recognizes the importance of working on behalf of the special animals we serve and will work hard for them as they are counting on us to save their lives!

When every person does a little to make a difference, together, we make change. Reaching as many people as possible to let them know we’re here and the important work we are doing for an important population of animals that have no one else but us is directly proportionate to what we can achieve, and the number of animals we can save. The more volunteer help we have, the more animals we can help. It’s that simple. Will YOU help? If you want to help and can fulfill the needs we are looking for in a volunteer for this role, please email volunteer@milwaukeepetsalive.org or reply to this posting.

Please help us do more for the animals of this community! Thank you.

Milwaukee Pets Alive (MPA) is an all-volunteer, No Kill, 501c3 special needs and considerations rescue that focuses on saving those local animals that have been passed over by, would not be accepted into, or would be killed by other rescues and shelters because of their needs and considerations and would have no other option for life except for through our organization. These animals may be shy, scared, under-socialized, injured, aged, differently-abled, have medical needs, or need extra resources - all deserve the chance to be loved and cherished. And all deserve time, understanding, patience, and good, comprehensive veterinary care to help them get happy, healthy, and reach their highest potential. Their lives are important.

Our mission, through our work aforementioned and through comprehensive programs and resources to educate and help community members help the animals in their own lives (thereby preventing more animals from entering the shelter system), is to end the killing of homeless companion animals in southeast WI. The population we rescue comprises those that continue to die in the greatest numbers in our community.

Our vision is for southeast WI to be one of the safest communities in the United States for companion animals.

We couldn’t help these special animals of our community that we do if not for the wonderful people who volunteer their time and talents!

Are you ready to do more for the animals of YOUR community? Become a part of our team! Reach out to us today!
