Description

Austin Partners in Education (APIE) aims to improve student college and career readiness and expand STEM opportunities through community engagement. The VISTA project will seek to expand APIE program capacity focused on Austin ISD's under-resourced schools. Currently serving a student population that is 90% economically disadvantaged, APIE expects to support at least 3,300 students each year over the three-year course of the project. To meet the overarching objectives of the project: a) Developing and implementing a volunteer and community support strategy for targeted Austin ISD schools and b) Placing more adult volunteers in the classroom to work with high-needs students at Title I schools, VISTA member (Donor Relations Advocate) will work with the Development team to help cultivate a diversified funding stream to bring APIE programs to more students and schools within Austin Independent School District. Major responsibilities include: supporting and documenting donor stewardship and utilizing the donor database; building on existing plans for fundraising days (Amplify Austin and Giving Tuesday) to gain individual donors and keep them engaged, including the use of current and new technologies to support fundraising efforts; identify new funding opportunities within the community, including corporate sponsorship and fundraising events and researching potential corporate and foundation donors and writing grant proposals and reports.
