Fundraising & Development VISTA (TSF)
The Sanneh Foundation (TSF) is a Minnesota based 501(c)3 created to serve the holistic youth development needs of Minnesota’s increasingly diverse youth population. TSF’s mission is to empower youth by supporting and promoting educational attainment through in-school and after-school programming; improve lives by providing programs that strengthen physical health and social and emotional development; and unite communities by advancing diversity, equity, and community well-being. TSF is seeking an outgoing, positive, self-starter to join our fast-paced, quickly growing non-profit organization to assist in eliminating poverty in TSF Service Communities. This VISTA project helps alleviate poverty by developing systems to ensure TSF is being a good steward of the resources allocated to meeting our mission. Successful candidates will be passionate about our mission, excited to tell our story in the community, and be able to capture and develop powerful visual messaging to expand awareness of TSF’s mission and impact. The Fundraising & Development VISTA will gain skills in the areas of nonprofit fundraising, development, and sustainability.
