Join United Way of North Idaho as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member!
United Way of North Idaho represents the state’s five northern counties and is based in Coeur d’Alene. We are currently seeking an articulate, outgoing individual to help us raise funds for our early childhood education initiatives and projects being developed from the regional ALICE Report. VISTA (Volunteer In Service To America) is a national program focused on addressing poverty and is currently celebrating its 50th year. The AmeriCorps VISTA program provides a living allowance that enables members to live like the community they serve. The allowance is based on poverty rates for a single individual, $11,880 per year and also includes an end of term education stipend of $5,810.
The successful candidate will work to develop and implement a sustainable fundraising plan to increase funds and in-kind support for early childhood education and ALICE population (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed), or low-income population in the five northern counties of Idaho. This will be done with a focus on grantwriting and sponsorship, but will also include tasks and assistance in event production and our annual workplace giving campaign. Specific tasks will include learning UWNI “products” and research, evaluation, identification, and prioritization of sponsor and grant funders to enable program growth and development.
