Member Duties : The Foundry is an education space and business incubator on Buffalo’s East Side. We believe creating opportunities for self sufficiency and economic stability promotes a healthier community and thus focus on youth education (STEAM classes, job training, career exploration), community education (shared workshops, DIY classes), and business incubation (mentoring, workspace, business classes) . The VISTA member would be responsible for enhancing The Foundry’s educational program that has been created in the last few years by focusing on funding opportunities and developing systems for in-kind donations of materials and tools. The VISTA member’s duties would consist of conducting outreach and recruiting volunteers to serve on a fundraising committee. They would be working with the Executive Director to develop and implement an annual fundraising plan. Additionally, the VISTA member will implement a new donor management system and assist with long term funding solutions.
