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.
Our nonprofit is working on a unique interactive/videogame project all about social issues and awareness and is likely the first project of its kind about a character in a wheelchair. Given that currently it's being developed by volunteers with no budget but passion for the cause, we feel we pushed it as far as we could without funding. We're looking for someone to research available grants and write up applications, understanding the non-traditional aspects of our projects. We use Grant Station premium grant researching platform. The media angle might be novel and unusual to grantors, but the underlying goal to push for visibility and inclusion is not. We just use different tools to get there.
Our entire team is working remotely and we are spread out across the US. We also understand, that with a volunteering position time is limited and hours are irregular and subject to change- that's why most of us interact online on their own schedule. We are looking for someone independent, motivated and organized who wants to be a part of something different and shares our interest in creating positive change through visual media by being a part of a driven team.
