Volunteer Opportunity description

Nourish Boston is seeking an individual to lead the planning and execution of networking events and to assist in identifying, pursuing, and coordinating fundraising opportunities for the organization. Volunteers should have demonstrated experience in event planning or fundraising. Applicant should be able to provide a consistent, self-motivated effort over a minimum 3-6 month period.

Events will range from small-scale networking events to large multi-sponsor/partner fundraising events. Individual should feel comfortable networking with key players in the local food and non-profit space in Boston.

Specifically, this position reports directly to the Development Director and includes:

  • Coordinating brand-building networking events
  • Connecting with local businesses for partnerships regarding events
  • Creating annual fundraising strategy
  • Managing logistics of networking and fundraising events
  • Ensuring necessary permits
  • Maintaining strategic partnerships

Individual should have familiarity or interest in learning about Boston's local food and non-profit ecosystem. Individual should have an interest in and feel comfortable discussing topics related to Nourish Boston's mission, including, but not limited to:

  • Nutrition

  • Sustainability
  • CSAs
  • Environmental issues
  • Public health education

This is a mostly remote position with a time commitment requiring approximately 5 hours per week (with additional time required prior to events). Given that the position requires some in-person commitments (including site visits, prospective partner meetings, and day-of event production), applicants must be located within the Boston metro area.
