Fundraising Director, Fall 2021
We are seeking a Fundraising Director for the Circle of Women Undergraduate Management Team for 2021! As a part of the Management Team, you will run the day-to-day operations of Circle of Women. Previous MT members have spoken of this experience as the most meaningful growing experience they have had in college, both professionally and personally. You would be joining a team of 7 fantastic directors.
All Directors are responsible for:
- Staying in her position for the rest of the calendar year (Sept-Dec '21)
- Consistently striving to improve Circle of Women as an organization
- Not only completing daily operational tasks but also having an eye towards long-term strategy
- Maintaining reliable and consistent communication with other Directors, chapter members, project partners, and Board of Directors
- Participating in a one day transition meeting and in the Volunteer Summit
- Voting on organization-wide issues such as project proposals, structural changes, and other procedures
The Director of Fundraising must develop the long-term fundraising strategy of Circle of Women as well as the policies and best practices for Chapters. This Director is crucial to the success of our projects - without her, our projects could never enter construction!
On a day-to-day basis, this directorship is demanding but variable in terms of time commitment. Two high school fundraising interns will provide the Director with assistance on various tasks. This position requires persistent planning and forward thinking of events as well as consistent research of potential avenues Circle should pursue. For the fall, the Director will spearhead two fundraisers: International Day of the Girl (Monday, October 11th) and Giving Tuesday (Tuesday, November 30th).
In the long term, the Director is responsible for expanding our corporate and private donors. This requires development of information related to corporate sponsors as well as potential private resources.

- Oversees and executes organization-wide Circle of Women fundraisers, through online giving campaigns, on-campus events

About Circle of Women
P.O Box 381365, Cambridge, MA 02238, US
Our mission is to equip girls with self-reliance, knowledge, and increased capacities to both enhance their own lives and to contribute productively to their societies. We believe this is the best way to affect positive, global change. Our philosophy is that one school will affect one community, while one community will make a world of change.
We’re a young nonprofit dedicated to increasing access to education for women and girls in developing countries. Our first project was the construction of a secondary school for 1200 girls in Afghanistan, where the female literacy rate is only 12% (UNICEF). Our second project is the renovation of a government-run school for 600 girls in Keiri Reki, Pakistan. While a group of college students and recent graduates fund-raise, organize, and spread awareness at home, experienced collaborators manage construction locally.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
