UWF is seeking volunteers to coordinate fundraising!

About Undocumented Women’s Fund, aka the Comadre Network 

The Undocumented Women’s Fund (“UWF”) is a community care collective that seeks to develop sustainable mutual-aid networks, as well as to foster autonomous and gender-conscious organizing led by immigrant and undocumented women. Undocumented women face immense financial pressure during the COVID-19 crisis: they perform most of the unpaid care work that upholds their communities; face significant barriers to obtaining work; and, when they are employed, it is usually in low-wage, precarious and invisibilized jobs like domestic labor and care work. On top of this, their immigration status limits their access to basic social services and has been used to exclude them and their families from any kind of relief. 

In response to this, the Fund works towards four main goals: (1) identify some of the most pressing needs of undocumented women who are head of their households in NYC; (2) build a network to mobilize existing resources to meet those needs; (3) provide direct financial support in areas where no other resources are available through distribution of cash grants; and (4) foster the development of sustainable mutual-aid systems – a “Comadre network” led by immigrant and undocumented women. 

Fundraising Coordinator: We currently have a few platforms on which we collect donations, from which we collect and document donor information for future fundraising campaigns. We also have “Fundraising Captains” who are groups or individuals who set a fundraising goal for themselves and come up with fun ideas to raise the money among their networks. In short, the Fundraising Team is the central contact with donors and manages the incoming monetary support for the Fund. 

Responsibilities Include

  • Collect donor information from Chuffed donation page and organize in Airtable spreadsheet
  • Coordinate with other team members that accept donations in their Paypal & Venmo accounts 
  • Send emails to donors through Mailchimp 
  • Recruit “Fundraising Captains” 
  • Asking donors to share pictures, comments on why they support UWF (for social media campaigns)
  • Brainstorming new ways to engage donors (e.g. Art Auction) 
  • Availability and commitment: Since our goal is to create a Comadre Network that fosters community-building among our grantees, we would like volunteers who are interested and committed to this network for the long run. 
  • Responsiveness: 1.5 hours bi-weekly commitment to attend our bi-weekly check-in meetings to update on any recurring needs from your respective teams, beyond your general responsibilities respective to your assigned team.
