Rising Hope is a community of faith helping individuals rise above homelessness and poverty along the Route 1 Corridor of Fairfax County, VA. Rising Hope is an inclusive community welcoming all individuals.

Position Summary:

This is a volunteer position serving as a member of the Fund Development Committee for Rising Hope Mission Church. Rising Hope is a Methodist church that operates much like a traditional nonprofit with programs including a food pantry, daily kitchen, hypothermia shelter, and other need-based services. The Fund Development Committee serves as the main fundraising arm of the organization.

  • Attend a monthly meeting of the committee to develop, plan and implement funding opportunities for Rising Hope including, but not limited to, events, grants, direct donor development and online fundraising.
  • Share opportunities for involvement at Rising Hope with your networks. This could look like inviting your networks to fundraising events, introducing them to Rising Hope as potential donors or hosting your own fundraiser.
  • Support the leadership of Rising Hope in developing new processes for improved efficiencies around income tracking and grant management.
