We are looking for 2-3 people who can help us with our fundraising goals for 2020.
We are a new program, fiscally sponsored by the Social Good Fund, that serves youth and children in San Francisco, who live in disenfranchised neighborhoods with opportunities in the arts, sciences and the outdoors.
Our mission is to create access and opportunities for youth who live in San Francisco, to explore what's possible for themselves and their lives, that motivate and empower them to create a life of their choosing. We do this by leading trips into places and spaces historically not available to them in the arts, sciences and the outdoors.
We are asking that you:
1 year experience
Manage the writing of up to 5 proposals/LOI
Produce concise, moving documents that are ready to be submitted to donors
Offer independent thought about approach to funding
Keep organized records of your work
Have a bi-weekly call with Fund Development Director to discuss progress and needs
Clear and concise writing ability and verbal communication
Ability to analyze and determine fit with organizations mission
Interest in working in a start-up environment
Experience with and willingness to work remotely
Ability to hear beyond the noise - clarity of thought

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.
