Seeking committed professionals in the areas of digital marketing and grantwriting to serve with a current Board of Directors (6) to guide the development & stability of a national non-profit organization. This Board will support the national office, which manages 12 local chapters.
Board members will be required to:
attend 3 of the 4 annual meetings,
meet a minimum donation/fundraising goal of $1000,
support fundraising efforts (local or NYC),
be responsive via email to the ED/President,
not required to be based in NYC, but preference to someone who is available to travel to NYC once a year, &
contribute professional skills in the areas of digital marketing or grantwriting
Digital Marketing: We seek someone with verifiable success in this area to build our social media presence (ideally conversions off social media to donate or volunteer, and to reach childhood cancer families to offer services), improve Google ads and create new campaigns (via Google Ad Grants, goals for donations, volunteers, corporate gifts/volunteers, hospital staff, and childhood cancer families), and advising on best strategies for emailing audiences versus paid social media ads.
Grantwriting: Since Covid restrictions, we've pivoted our programs and have initiated a grant submission effort across the country. You'll assist in the vetting of potential funders, putting together proposals, submitting, and tweaking the proposals to funder specifics (funding focus, character limits on submission forms, etc). We're currently using a proposal written by a volunteer with cited scientific studies supporting our programs. As it's a living document, we need someone to regularly review and update it.
The For a Day Foundation celebrates 20 years of service to kids with cancer (& other serious illnesses) through quality of life services & experiences. As a Board member, you will support on-going activities through fundraising & by lending your professional skills/experience. You will help shape future policy that creates credibility within the pediatric cancer community & amongst the general public.
Pre-Covid, we hosted themed parties in hospital playrooms, like Queen & Hero for a Day. Since social distancing restrictions, we've pivoted to sending STEAM activity kits to our partner facilities and fulfilling quality of life requests for individual families and patients.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
