The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Front of the building
I am looking to establish a volunteer grant writing committee to support our efforts in soliciting funds for Wesley House Student Residence, specifically to upgrade the building and expand the support services for our student residents. We currently have very limited staff resources available. The following are some of the skill sets we will need on the committee:
Researcher: builds a case for support, including a compelling statement of need. This person should be somewhat analytical and able to make connections between facts and figures.
Writer: takes all of the information and turns it into a compelling request for support.
Graphic designer: takes data and develops charts and graphs, or creates any visual that will strengthen the request.
Copyeditor: reviews the entire proposal before it is submitted, making sure it is grammatically clean.
Proposal coordinator: reviews all of the grant guidelines and assembles the final package.
