Fundraising Volunteers To Help Us Grow! (age 18+) Referral

Green Lents mission is to engage the greater Lents community in developing a more livable, thriving place. Since 2009, Green Lents has worked to enhance community-led projects that directly benefit Lents area residents while providing opportunities to build volunteer leadership capacity and educate residents. Other Green Lents projects include the Green Lents Community Tool Library, Malden Court Community Orchard, Pollinator Habitat, Food Justice and Livable Lents.

Green Lents is supported in part by grants, but relies heavily on our annual donation drives and other streams of fundraising revenue. Your efforts will have a direct impact on our ability to serve the greater-Lents community with these projects.

Calling on people interested in learning about nonprofit fundraising and helping Lents and the greater SE community thrive. Join a grassroots fundraising volunteer team with Green Lents Development Manager Dasha, who is looking for people with a wide range of qualifications and/ or people who want to learn and grow their nonprofit fundraising skills.

This is a remote opportunity. Hours/Days flexible according to the volunteer's availability.

Together we will brainstorm, advance most prominent strategies, support one another and foster an open forum environment to achieve that our Lents and greater SE community has access to a wide range of environmental resources, education, and engagement opportunities in our neighborhood.
