The Outreach and Development VISTA at Cornerstone Ranch will build capacity by increasing community awareness of the agency and increasing financial support through events and grant writing efforts to support families affected by disabilities. Major functions include developing a plan to increase donors and participation in fundraising events and researching and writing at least 6 grants during the service year with a total potential value of $100,000. The VISTA will work with the organization to develop plans for events, solicit sponsorships and in-kind support, create logistical strategies and develop post-evaluation processes for each special event. VISTAs serve their communities through indirect service. The VISTA member will have limited interaction with Cornerstone Ranch clients and will be based in an office setting. Applicants should possess exemplary written and oral communication skills and computer skills. Recruitment and fundraising experience a plus.
VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) devote one year of full-time service at nonprofit organizations or local government agencies. They build the capacity of these organizations to develop, manage, and sustain programs to make poverty history. To learn more visit www.VISTANorthTexas.com or email VISTA@rsvpserves.org.
