Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
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.
