THE EIGHT remains on the frontline responding to the emergency needs of families and individuals resulting from the onslaught of COVID-19. The demands for our services through partnership referrals and word of mouth have quadrupled since February. Unplanned expenses and lost revenue relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic have threatened our ability to meet the demand.
The Eight Nonprofit is seeking grant writers to prepare grant proposals for our programs.
Volunteer duties include but not limited to:
familiarize themselves with an organization's programs, goals, and financial needs.
look into potential funding sources.
compiling all the information, compose, and send proposals.
keep careful records to track their proposals. (If a grant-making organization requests additional information, nonprofit grant writers supply the missing items.)
working with our executive board, in planning fund-raising campaigns and promoting the organization through public relations work.
Nonprofit grant writers may have a bachelor's degree in communications, English, professional writing, or a similar major. Outstanding grammar and research skills are essential.
"Wellness--helping people improve their quality of life through the implementation of the 8 Dimensions of being-well; (Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical, Social and Spiritual.) Our objectives are being met through the innovative and strategic placement of "Pop-Up" service clinics throughout the Inland Empire, by providing onsite access help to create a platform for Youth, Women and People with "diverse-abilities" and introduce whole-wellness options.
THE EIGHT believes in a world in which ALL people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as valued and rewarded fairly for their skills, talents and labor. We also believe in the extraordinary power of the arts and technology as a unifying language of communication and a vehicle of integration for organic learning and creative entrepreneurship.
We partner with community stakeholders and virtual wellness enthusiasts in order to connect Life changing Opportunities and People in Need.
THE EIGHT logo reflects the 8 dimensions of Wellness as a wheel. The wellness wheel shows how the dimensions work together. Like a bike wheel, if all of the spokes or dimensions are functioning at optimal levels, the wheel rolls along smoothly. If however, one of the spokes or dimensions becomes weak or if the tire loses air, the wheel will run off course.
THE EIGHT programs/aspects and activities are part of the whole--they are integrated, creative efforts that put forth a cohesive, community effort that not only educate and fights poverty but obesity and disease as well. THE EIGHT is a "Wellness Hub"--it is multi-dimensional and holistic, encompassing occupational, intellectual, social, financial, physical, emotional, the environment and spiritual well-being.
