ABOUT CAMP CASCO

Camp Casco builds community for childhood cancer patients, survivors, and families in New England through amazing camp experiences. We create a space for kids to reclaim their childhood- to laugh and play. All of our campers have been affected by childhood cancer, and this unifying environment is liberating. At camp, cancer instantly becomes the least remarkable thing about you - a welcome relief for those who have felt defined by this label in everyday life.

Research shows that summer camps for children with cancer reduce disease-related anxiety, improve self-image, increase independence, build social skills, and ultimately improve psychosocial outcomes. We provide these benefits to New England kids free-of-cost, giving patients, survivors, and siblings the chance to make lasting memories and build lifelong friendships.

SCOPE OF VOLUNTEER DUTIES

Reporting to the CEO and Special Events Director, the Sponsorship Chair will play an essential role in supporting our plans for substantial growth by helping us seek out and apply for sponsorships for our largest annual fundraiser over the course of 12 weeks.

As a short-term volunteer, the Sponsorship Chair will be provided appropriate information and materials to streamline the sponsorship-seeking process.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Research and compile a list of potential sponsors

  • Manage all sponsor outreach and follow-up, which may be done via mail, email, and/or phone

  • Ensure that any sponsorships acquired are communicated to the CEO and Special Events Chair for proper sponsorship recognition and follow-up

QUALIFICATIONS

We are seeking strong candidates who possess the following core skills:

  • Strong written communication

  • Excellent people skills, with experience collaborating in a multidisciplinary, diverse, and dynamic team

  • Close attention to detail, able to keep track of ongoing outreach and follow-up needs

  • Responsive and communicative

  • A shared commitment to Camp Casco’s mission to support childhood cancer patients, survivors, and families, and organizational values of commitment, compassion, and community

  • Experience obtaining event sponsorships is a plus, but not required

ELIGIBILITY & COMMITMENT

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. We are looking for a candidate who is ideally able to commit 3-5 hours per week for 12 weeks. All hours can be done virtually and around your schedule.
