CRC Statewide Data Analyst VISTA (GrantCorps)
Community Resource Center (CRC), a Denver based nonprofit, supports, strengthens, and galvanizes change-makers across the nonprofit ecosystem, working together to create a more equitable Colorado. As an innovator and statewide convener, CRC listens to partners’ challenges and considers new ways to provide support and access to tools most needed by organizations throughout the state. A significant and ongoing challenge faced by small, rural-based, and BIPOC-led and serving nonprofits is access to grant funding. Often, smaller organizations lack the staff capacity to conduct research for, write, and develop systems for management and reporting on grants. The GrantCorps VISTA will combat this barrier by engaging with rural nonprofits addressing poverty and building their capacity through fund development and grant writing. They will gain valuable insight and experience in fund development by initiating grant research, grant proposal and report preparation, resource mapping, and creation of grant and budget tracking tools. This second-year VISTA will continue compiling records throughout their term of service to establish best practices for this new model of capacity building and create tools to regularly evaluate success. They will create an implementation plan and provide recommendations for subsequent VISTA member(s) for improvements to increase success. This role will address the sustainability of services to low-income communities, and the streams of funding that make access to those services possible. By doing so, the VISTA will increase the ability of our partners to improve educational, health, housing, and professional development outcomes.
