Hesperian Health Guides, non-profit publisher of Where There Is No Doctor and other grassroots health materials, is seeking a volunteer to assist with identifying new funding sources. Hesperian continues to expand our collection of books and resources so that our clear health resources cover more topics and are available in additional formats. To fund these efforts we are seeking new grants from foundations.
We are looking for a volunteer who can research potential funders, compile and organize funding research, and assist with writing letters of inquiry to reach out to these funders. The position will also include some data entry and other tasks as agreed on in advance. Our ideal volunteer is comfortable doing internet research and has an interest in global health. Previous experience in development or fundraising is a great asset also, but not required.
The position offers a chance to develop skills and knowledge related to public health, development, non-profit management, and global issues. Hours and specific tasks are flexible but we hope to find someone who would like to volunteer for more than a month.
If you are interested in joining our team, please send a resume and short cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Foundations Development Volunteer. Position will remain open until filled.
