Saheli
 
 
 
Saheli, Support and Friendship for South Asian Women and Families is a small, community-based nonprofit located in Burlington, MA. Saheli's free services are specifically geared toward challenges faced by South Asian immigrants in MA, and include programs in domestic violence prevention and recovery, economic empowerment, and emotional well-being and mental health. Saheli seeks two motivated, talented and dynamic Development VISTA Members to work as a team and establish development processes to sustain donor relationships, build new financial streams of income, and ensure the continued success of our two annual community fundraisers. Expected projects and tasks will include: - developing a more coordinated way to track philanthropic requests, pledges and contributions; - researching and developing a central donor database; - responding to donor queries and approaching benefactors for appeals; - analyzing data and compiling reports on current or prospective donors; - drafting proposals or grants; and - preparing mailing materials such as invitations, solicitations and newsletters. The VISTA Members will create succession strategies to ensure that after their departure, Saheli will have access to continued funding streams and more efficient development processes, thereby allowing programmatic staff to focus more on direct services to low-income women and families in need. This position is ideal for people who have excellent problem-solving and organizational skills, strong written and oral communication skills, research skills, basic IT expertise, and are able to work as part of a team as well as take individual initiative on projects. Access to a car is helpful. To apply, please submit an AmeriCorps application and send a resume and cover letter to Katy Hurley at katy@saheliboston.org. *No phone calls, please.*
