Our affiliate is looking to grow, especially in our individual, corporate and foundation donor areas. We are adding additional training and staff and board involvement in these areas in conjunction with Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity. During the past few years we developed a new website and learned more about social media. Now we need to use these new skills to raise more funds so we can serve more individuals, especially through our Neighborhood Revitalization focus and achieve growth by completing 25 repairs in addition to our new and rehab house program. This position will develop and coordinate a strategy around how to increase financial and non-financial resources towards this end.

Develop, document and implement a plan for donor engagement, tracking, and recognition in order to increase the overall donor experience and donor buy-in to Habitat's mission, ultimately allowing us to serve more families.

This is a full time AmeriCorps VISTA position. You must have your own health insurance before starting this position. There is a living allowance of $800.00 per month and our affilate gives you $200 per month for rent and $135 per month for food.
