Catalyst for Fundraising Success

501 Commons is seeking volunteer fundraising consultants to participate in its Catalyst for Fundraising Success cohort learning program. Catalyst helps nonprofits reach their fund development goals, such as writing a development plan, working with a donor database, preparing for a first development hire, and developing a case for support. Consultants work in pairs, working collaboratively with a nonprofit team that consists of staff and board members. Visit our website for more program details.

Time Commitment

Catalyst runs from June 2018 – December 2018. The time commitment is 10-12 hours per month (or 2-3 hours per week) with an average of two in-person meetings per month with your organization (typically in the county you live/work in). Additionally, we provide two consultant round tables in our Seattle office to support consultants, provide assessment, and facilitate peer to peer learning and networking opportunities.

Volunteer with an Impact

If you have experience with donor development, donor databases, grantwriting, major gifts, fundraising events, or any other area of nonprofit fundraising, contact us! We are looking for volunteers with at least two years of development experience in King, Pierce, Kitsap, and Snohomish County. This is a great opportunity for development consultants to work together in an active learning program that has great impact on individual organizations. Your volunteering makes this program financially accessible to a diverse range of nonprofits in Washington State
