ASF works to protect and restore the Arroyo Seco, which has been called the most celebrated canyon in Southern California

About

We need help to develop ongoing funding for our Watershed Coordination program for the Arroyo Seco and to maintain our work supporting local efforts to protect and restore the river. We have a native plant nursery and also conduct lots of educational activities. So we have a great story to tell funders such as corporations, foundations and governmental agencies.

Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: You can help by researching funding opportunities and submitting applications and proposals. We are a volunteer-centered organization, so your help will be especially valuable. Grant writers will help with finding possible donors and writing grant proposals. This is a perfect opportunity for someone who would like to develop and apply their skills at grant writing and research. You can set your own schedule and share in other activities of the foundation as well.

Requirements: Basic writing and research skills are required and a desire to develop fundraising and grant experience.
