Phinney's Friends is a registered nonprofit that helps low-income people in Massachusetts keep their pets. We believe that the human-animal bond is a source of love, joy, comfort, and fulfillment for both people and pets. We do everything in our power to make sure animals and their beloved owners can stay together - we educate pet owners, take their animals to the vet, help pay vet bills, foster pets when owners are hospitalized, walk dogs and help care for pets on a regular basis.

Phinney's Friends is seeking an Event Manager to assist with events that will help us attain fundraising goals to cover the expenses of pet care and pet supplies for those in need.

  • Partner with Fundraising Director and Fundraising Team to identify and plan event fundraising opportunities
  • Serve as the point of contact for vendors, sponsors and event volunteers
  • Manage the registration of attendees, including responding to questions
  • Support marketing activities to drive registrations
  • Assist with "Day of" management of activities
