About

Hope Xchange is dedicated to preventing suicide and improving mental health outcomes in our most vulnerable and high-risk populations: our youth, LGBQT and bipolar communities.

We accomplish our mission by developing innovative, early intervention programs to reach those who are struggling with a mental illness wherever and whenever they need us most, connecting in a nonjudgemental way with understanding and compassion.

Founded in 2013, we've been bootstrapped by our founder and close family and friends. As a result of 2016 September Suicide Prevention Awareness month, our volunteers found themselves needing to shore up our foundation and switch into a major fundraising gear so we can answer every cry for help. No brave would who reaches out to us should not be responded to immediately.

We are seeking kindred spirits who too believe that suicide prevention is everyone's responsibility and are willing to lend a hand in ANY of the following areas pertaining to raising funds:

  1. surveying "fund"-scape (online research of funding opportunities particularly new passive strategies, e.g., CoinUp and GiftingUp)
  2. grant writing assistance (in collaboration with our Executive Director)
  3. crowd funding & crowd sourcing campaign management assistance
  4. "Boots on Ground" fundraising

With that said, because our needs are so diverse, we're looking for those who with passion and strengths we could leverage to accomplish our goals.

Our fundraising intern will work directly and closely with our executive staff.

We have a very forward thinking and innovative approach, so this also may be an excellent match for those thinking about getting into nonprofit management, and in particular, those who want to learn how to raise funds for a good cause.

With gratitude,

Kerry Martin, CEO & Founder
