Who we are: Doodles Academy comprises a group of volunteer artists and educators who believe that regular exposure to art is crucial in order for the next generation to develop into reflective and adaptable adults.
We offer a high-quality, comprehensive art curriculum that is tuition-free and distributed online. By offering structure and guidance as well as an adaptable program that can fit into any number of educational contexts or classroom objectives, we make providing a high-quality art education easy for any educator.
What we need: For this upcoming Fiscal Year, our Development Committee will be researching and identifying Grant opportunities for us to apply to. We are looking for volunteer Grant Writer(s) who can help us write successful grants for the identified opportunities. Ideal candidates would have a strong working knowledge of grant writing, and ideally would have experience writing successful grants. Working with the Executive Director the Grant Writer would familiarize themself with the organization and desired outcomes, then draft a Grant Proposal(s). Many documents would be available for the Grant Writer(s) to pull from (business plans, etc.) so that they don’t have to generate content from scratch, although they will have to 'cut-and-paste’ as well as write supplemental text to fit the grant format.
FUN FACT ABOUT ART EDUCATION
