Women in Transitions - Fund Capacity Building for Refugees
 
 
 
The Women in Transition Initiative is a collaboration between Transplanting Traditions Community Farm, Benevolence Farm, and AmeriCorps VISTA CNCS which focuses on employment and workforce development strategies through agricultural-based social enterprise programs as a tool for overcoming and preventing poverty. The initiative seeks to ensure that North Carolina women facing major transitions (refugees, immigrants, formerly incarcerated, and others) gain the educational and professional skills needed to improve their economic situation. The AmeriCorps VISTA Fundraising and Events Coordinator will help diversify funding strategies for the organization, which will, in turn, support the financial sustainability of Transplanting Traditions programming that increases food access, leadership opportunities and business development training in the refugee community. This will be achieved through supporting the development of fundraising committees, establishing improved donor management and fund development tools, and developing sustainable fundraising campaigns and events. Qualifications: Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to justice, equity and have experience working with people from diverse cultures, ethnicity, races, religion, language, socioeconomic groups, and educational backgrounds. Relevant experience with non-profits fundraising including event and campaign planning are ideal, as well as experience with donor engagement and donor database management. Experience in marketing and design is a plus. Strong communication skills are essential for success, as well as proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel. Candidates are expected to have excellent organizational and time management skills, the ability to multitask and be able to work both collaboratively and independently. Flexibility, adaptability, humility and openness to new situations are necessary. Knowledge of food justice, sustainable agriculture or refugee resettlement are a plus.
