Northern IL Food Bank - Digital Engagement Advisor
The Digital Engagement Ambassador will work closely with our Director of Individual Giving, who manages our website and on-line communications. The VISTA will help provide timely and succinct messaging to our donors, volunteers and stakeholders through on-line platforms, including our website, email blasts and social media. As we see corporate giving trending towards greater employee involvement we need to create and implement a fundraiser recruitment and retention plan and develop tools for peer-to-peer fundraising . Along with our 800 network members, including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, schools, youth and senior sites, the Food Bank provides nutritious food for 71,500 different individuals weekly across 13 counties. Our 7,000 square mile service area stretches our staff to adequately build awareness of the need for hunger relief and engage supporters in every corner. With the help of VISTA team members we will increase support to help us towards our strategic goal of providing 75 million meals by 2020 through volunteering and financial support.
