The Development and Engagement Specialist (DES) will work on various capacity building and engagement projects to increase the number of low-income students that can access Carpe Mundi programming, thereby increasing their likelihood of graduating from college, finding a living-wage job, and alleviating the cycle of individual and community poverty. Carpe Mundi supports low-income, first-generation college students in a year-long mentorship program that includes an experiential education semester abroad. The DES will work alongside the Executive Director to implement and grow existing fundraising initiatives, including a monthly donor program and a corporate donor program, and develop a new student sponsorship program. The DES will also be integral in providing feedback as to how Carpe Mundi can create better relationships with existing supporters and donors, and cultivate new relationships with stakeholders from diverse communities. The DES will also focus on implementing alumni engagement programming, and developing an alumni engagement platform or portal, which will connect program alumni to each other, and our wider community of supporters. The DES will also take part in recruitment efforts, specially developing new ways to reach potential students through social media. The efforts of the DES will allow Carpe Mundi to strengthen its visibility in the Portland community, forming and deepening relationships, increasing fundraising revenue, improving engagement for program alumni, and improving recruitment methods. These outcomes will allow Carpe Mundi to support more students, make improvements to the support we currently provide for students and alumni, and increase the number of low-income, first-generation college students that graduate with post-secondary credentials.
