Are you an experienced fund developer? We’re looking for a Fund Development Director for Weekend-Adventures to assist in planning, organizing, and directing our fundraising opportunities, including a major gifts program, annual fund, planned giving, special events, and capital campaigns.

You will partner with the Founding Executive Director with the grant writing process. We are up to initiating 50 communications with foundations who are in line with our work. Our goal is to raise $150,000 (promised or awarded) by the end of 2020.

Weekend-Adventures was created to alleviate poverty in marginalized communities. This includes black, brown and the poor people. But more precisely, we have our eyes set on the children and youth in these communities. We know that this a tall order, and we also know that children are our future, and if we don’t give them a promising childhood, they will not know what a bright future looks like.
Unlike other programs, Weekend-Adventures is not stationary. Our program is designed to take youth out of the neighborhood and into places and spaces that have historically been unavailable to them except MAYBE through a school field trip. What we do is plan weekend outings that take our youth on an adventure. These adventures include the arts, the outdoors and into the sciences.
