Outreach Support Specialist — Voices for CASA Children (Scottsdale)

Date Posted: May 7, 2018
Position Description:

Organization Overview: Voices for CASA Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to support the nearly 10,000 abused and neglected children in the Maricopa county foster care system through the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program. In everything we do, we believe in giving every lost and voiceless child a brighter future.

We do this by recruiting, training and supporting CASA volunteers. By creating opportunities that help every child know that they are cared for and safe. And by engaging the community to help drive awareness about the plight of Arizona's abused and neglected children.

CASA Volunteers work with members of a child's care team, the courts, and community resources to identify and advocate for a child's best interests. A CASA volunteer acts as the eyes and ears of the juvenile court judge and works to move the child to permanency.  Because the CASA volunteer acts as a consistent presence in the child's life, children with a CASA volunteer do better in school, spend less time in foster care, and are less likely to re-enter foster care.

Our office is located at Miller Rd/Indian School in Scottsdale, AZ.

More information is available at http://www.voicesforcasachildren.org/

Philanthropy Officer Individual Giving — Grand Canyon Association (Phoenix, AZ)

Date Posted: May 11, 2018
Position Description:

POSITION DESCRIPTION: PHILANTHROPY OFFICER, INDIVIDUAL GIVING

Grand Canyon National Park stands as one of the iconic landscapes of the American West. An international symbol of natural and cultural grandeur, the 1.2 million acre park is counted among the Crown Jewels of the National Park System, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and designated a World Heritage Site. One of the oldest national parks, it comprises 1.8 billion years of geology from rim to river, is the second busiest park hosting 6.25 million visitors annually, and is the most protected yet still the most threatened of public lands.

As federal funding decreases, the park relies on Grand Canyon Association (GCA), its creative and nimble nonprofit partner since 1932, to provide critical support in the areas of education, resource management, and philanthropic giving. Over the decades, this collaboration has become a powerful vehicle for wide-ranging stakeholders and constituents to help preserve and protect one of America's greatest national treasures.

Grand Canyon Association continues to evolve its operations and increase its private funding to enhance visitor experiences and conservation efforts in the park. Working in tandem with park leadership, it operates eight park stores that feature GCA's publications, cultivates outdoor education experiences through programs of the world-class Grand Canyon Association Field Institute, and connects people to the park with a base of more than 18,000 members. Through the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation donors, GCA has funded significant park initiatives including restoration of the historic Kolb Studio, renovation of the renowned Bright Angel Trailhead, and construction of an energy-efficient greenhouse. It is presently completing its first fundraising campaign to restore historic canyon trails, protect the night skies above Grand Canyon, and enhance cultural resources such as the Desert View Inter-Tribal Cultural Heritage site.

Guided by Chief Executive Officer Susan Schroeder, a talented board, and skilled staff, GCA is poised to move to the next level by fostering relationships and engaging key stakeholders to achieve its strategic goals. Critical to the Association's growth is its Philanthropy program, established in 2008 and experiencing tremendous growth and expansion under the leadership of Chief Philanthropy Officer Ann Scheflen.

Founded in 1919, Grand Canyon National Park celebrates its Centennial in 2019. GCA is implementing a multi-year national awareness campaign to support its range of fundraising and engagement programs.

OPERATIONS, WORK ENVIRONMENT & LOCATION
GCA employs approximately 80 people, has an operating budget of over $15 million, and holds more than $16 million in assets. The culture is inspired by the significance of the canyon; the staff is spirited, service-minded, collaborative, and committed to its Core Values of Service, Integrity, Knowledge, Connection, Achievement, Adventure, and Accountability. Its operations are located primarily at the South Rim, with offices in Flagstaff and Phoenix, Arizona.

THE PHILANTHROPY PROGRAM
The Philanthropy team was responsible for $4.9 million in revenue for 2017. This is an exciting time at Grand Canyon Association as we drive a growing program toward national reach and prominence. GCA is on track to complete its first-ever fundraising campaign in time for the 2019 Centennial celebrations having raised two-thirds of the campaign's $15 million goal. The Philanthropy Officer will help build a community of inspired philanthropists who care deeply about the preservation and conservation of Grand Canyon and who will make a profound impact on the park for present and future visitors.

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES
The Philanthropy Officer will serve as a critical leader of the Philanthropy team, focusing on giving at the five- and six-figure level. Reporting to the Chief Philanthropy Officer, s/he will be responsible for expanding the major giving program at GCA. As part of our fast-paced philanthropy team, the Officer will actively manage a portfolio of major gift donors while contributing to our culture of philanthropy and raising funds in all areas (membership, annual giving, bequests and estate giving, sponsorship.) Duties vary, and may include, but are not limited to, the tasks listed below:

* Build meaningful and productive relationships with individuals to link their passion for Grand Canyon to critical park projects and programs through philanthropic support.

Membership and Digital Fundraising Manager — Grand Canyon Association (Phoenix, AZ)

Date Posted: May 11, 2018
Position Description:

POSITION DESCRIPTION: MEMBERSHIP AND DIGITAL FUNDRAISING MANAGER

Grand Canyon National Park stands as one of the iconic landscapes of the American West. An international symbol of natural and cultural grandeur, the 1.2 million acre park is counted among the Crown Jewels of the National Park System, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and designated a World Heritage Site. One of the oldest national parks, it comprises 1.8 billion years of geology from rim to river and is the second busiest park hosting 6.25 million visitors annually.
As federal funding decreases, the park relies on Grand Canyon Association (GCA), its creative and nimble nonprofit partner since 1932, to provide critical support in the areas of education, resource management, and philanthropic giving. Over the decades, this collaboration has become a powerful vehicle for wide-ranging stakeholders and constituents to help preserve and protect one of America's greatest national treasures.
Grand Canyon Association continues to evolve its operations and increase its private funding to enhance visitor experiences and conservation efforts in the park. Working in tandem with park leadership, it operates eight park stores that feature GCA's publications, cultivates outdoor education experiences through programs of the world-class Grand Canyon Association Field Institute, and connects people to the park with a base of more than 18,000 members. Through the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation donors, GCA has funded significant park initiatives including restoration of the historic Kolb Studio, renovation of the renowned Bright Angel Trailhead, and construction of an energy-efficient greenhouse. It is presently completing its first fundraising campaign to restore historic canyon trails, protect the night skies above Grand Canyon, and enhance cultural resources such as the Desert View Inter-Tribal Cultural Heritage site.
Guided by Chief Executive Officer Susan Schroeder, a talented board, and skilled staff, GCA is poised to move to the next level by fostering relationships and engaging key stakeholders to achieve its strategic goals. Critical to the Association's growth is its Philanthropy program, established in 2008 and experiencing tremendous growth and expansion under the leadership of Chief Philanthropy Officer Ann Scheflen.
Founded in 1919, Grand Canyon National Park celebrates its Centennial in 2019. GCA is implementing a multi-year national awareness campaign to support its range of fundraising and engagement programs.

OPERATIONS, WORK ENVIRONMENT & LOCATION

The Manager will help build a community of inspired members and donors who care deeply about the preservation and conservation of Grand Canyon and who will make a profound impact on the park for present and future visitors.

The Manager reports to the Chief Philanthropy Officer and works closely with the Philanthropy Officer for Annual Giving and the Director of Marketing & Communications. Office location is flexible.

Position Description:

Want to "STEM"ulate excitement for science, technology, engineering, and math in low-income youth & families? A chance to inspire through curriculum development and volunteer recruitment!

Through this learning model, we present our students with problems and projects that require them to utilize surrounding resources and train themselves how to solve each problem/project through first-hand investigation. Our goal as the Mountain Charter School STEM team is to give our students the opportunity to think critically and apply their knowledge to the real world both during and after school hours. VISTA will work with Mountain Charter School staff to design, implement and coordinate new, and revise current STEM curriculum to reflect Problem Based Learning as outlined by the site's selected PBL model from the Buck Institute. VISTA will build capacity and create volunteer opportunities for parents and residents to participate in STEM activities at and after school that will increase students' interest in STEM fields.
