Position Description: UMR has recently just launched our Fundraising Leader opportunity which allows for our dedicated volunteers to expand their assistance beyond a one-time or even recurring donation through the management of their own personal fundraising page! Through a variety of fundraising and marketing strategies from social media messaging to community outreach to event planning, our fundraising leaders can amplify the impact of their desire to donate!

And we at UMR want to do more than just provide our crowdfunding platform and toolkit to guide our dedicated fundraising leaders in their work. We are in the midst of continued work on supporting guides and toolkits that will only continue to expand the creativity, marketing, and most importantly fundraising of our volunteers’ incredible efforts! And we are looking for some assistance on this project so that we can publish our content faster than we plan!!

The ideal content creator is someone who has had previous fundraising and/or crowdsourcing experience and can contribute their knowledge to the ongoing work of our supplementary materials. This person should be creativity, adaptable, responsible, team-oriented and able to generate instructional content for a diverse audience. We list the responsibilities of this role as well as the qualifications and application process below:

    • Previous experience fundraising or developing fundraising materials for an organization or cause.
    • Previous experience with crowdfunding platforms, specifically Classy

Mission Statement

At the United Mission for Relief and Development (UMR), we seek to provide disaster relief, recovery services, and humanitarian aid to underserved and marginalized populations all around the world. But what separates us from other relief organizations is the importance we place on making sure the aid we supply leads to the development of sustainable, resilient communities. By cooperating with local partners and NGOs on the ground, designing robust projects that take into account the long-term needs of societies, implementing innovative solutions that involve entire populations, and respecting the dignity of our beneficiaries, we provide them with the support they need to develop lasting and impactful change for the better.

In 2019, UMR led 54 projects in 15 different countries by issuing over $3 million dollars in expenditures across our various projects. But we are even prouder of the impact of our work, serving roughly 700,000 direct beneficiaries and around 7 million indirect beneficiaries! Our projects breakdown across four programmatic sectors:
