Glacier Peak Institute

Resource & Funding Developer - AmeriCorps VISTA

Join our 5-year-old grassroots outdoor education organization and help underserved rural youth! You will help to develop FUN fundraising activities that will increase our working capital. As our VISTA volunteer, you will help us bolster our bottom line by improving donor relations and expanding fundraising opportunities.

We operate with one part-time employee and an AWESOME team of community volunteers.

Enjoy a beautiful small-town setting and easy access to outdoor recreation. Want to hike on your lunch break? Visit an old-growth forest in your own neighborhood? Join us!

At GPI you will break the cycle of poverty by building resilient communities and ecosystems and contributing to the lives of disadvantaged youth. Fundraising in our rural, economically depressed region is difficult. We want to hold smaller scale events throughout the year. You will develop standard operating procedures and use our database to streamline outreach, fundraising campaigns, and donor appreciation. You will use your tech skills to collaborate with our team and design improvements to our website. You will research funding opportunities and write grants and proposals to sustain the current level of programming in the short-term, and increase our capacity to grow in the long-term.

The position will be closed if it is filled prior to the due date.

1405 Emens Ave N, Darrington, WA 98241-9502, United States
