Description

Fundraising Volunteer

Are you a student looking to make a meaningful impact? A professional looking to lend your skillset to a worthy cause? A transitioning job seeker looking to build your skills? Scrutineers seeks an experienced grants and development professional to assist our small fundraising team with strengthening our portfolio of funding sources, researching and applying for grants, and implementing fundraising and capacity building campaigns. This person will report directly to the Volunteer Coordinator. This is a 100% volunteer position that will involve a commitment of 3 hours per week, completed remotely. Students or professionals that want or require additional volunteer hours may increase their commitment if they would like. 

What We’re Looking For:

  • Proven track record of awarded grants
  • Experience with grant databases like Candid, Grant Gopher, Grant Watch, etc.
  • Excellent writing skills and experience creating boilerplate language for grant submission 
  • Knowledge of grant submission platforms like Submittable, Good Grants, etc.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication, proofreading, and editing skills
  • The ability to consistently offer our organization 3 hours of your time per week
  • Passion for protecting our democracy and helping a small non-profit grow more sustainably

We strongly encourage passionate volunteers who are women, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, BIPOC, people with disabilities, and those belonging to other historically underrepresented groups to apply, even if they do not meet 100% of the requirements listed. Studies have shown that highly qualified marginalized people talk themselves out of application processes at a higher rate than other groups. If you have something valuable to offer our organization, we want to talk to you! 

About Scrutineers

Scrutineers is a non-partisan organization centering our work on election protection. It is our mission to mobilize our members around activities that help make local, state, and national elections more transparent, accurate, and accessible for all voters. 

While you may be familiar with work that protects citizens’ right to vote, which is incredibly important, you may not know that there is an entire sector of electoral work that is focused on the votes themselves. It is just as important to do our part in making sure votes are counted correctly, recorded without corruption, and reported accurately. These processes are crucial to ensuring that elections reflect the true desires of voters. Scrutineers is a non-partisan community of Democrats, Republicans, small party, and unaffiliated voters seeking to do just that.
