Accounting Specialist — Voices for CASA Children (Scottsdale, AZ)

Date Posted: January 18, 2019
Position Description:

Organization Overview: Voices for CASA Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to support the nearly 9,000 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.

Date Posted: January 7, 2019
Position Description:

BACKGROUND & INITIATIVE OVERVIEW

The Arizona Together for Impact Fund (the "Initiative") is a new enterprise to encourage and support formal enduring collaborations between nonprofit organizations in Arizona. Formal enduring collaborations include mergers, back-office consolidations, strategic alliances and joint ventures (collectively, "Enduring Collaborations"). By supporting sensible Enduring Collaborations, the Initiative will have an important and positive impact on the capacity, effectiveness and financial health of the Arizona nonprofit sector.

 The Initiative is modeled on five similar funder collaboratives currently operating around the country (in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles).

Links to those initiatives are provided at the end of this position description.

Once the Initiative is operational, the IM will be responsible for:

  • Evaluating and recommending grants to the Governance Committee
  • Providing appropriate assistance to potential and current grantees as part of the due diligence process; this may include hosting sensitive meetings of potential partners and select facilitation of associated board discussions and deliberations
  • Managing and reporting on the Initiative's portfolio including collecting/reviewing semi-annual reports from individual grantees and producing an annual report on the Initiative's overall performance for Governance Committee review; performance metrics will be developed over time in partnership with the Governance Committee
  • Updating and providing content to the website based on the Initiative's emerging local experience, as well as sharing learning that is available from other cities and literature
  • Building relationships with grantees, funders, umbrella organizations, technical assistance providers, government officials and other stakeholders to promote Enduring Collaborations as tools for increasing impact and improving outcomes for Arizona nonprofits
  • Engaging in field-building activities to promote Enduring Collaborations as a resource for the nonprofit community including 1) hosting educational/training sessions on Enduring Collaboration practices and processes for technical assistance providers and nonprofit leaders; 2) speaking with nonprofit leaders and boards; and 3) participating on panels with regional as well as national umbrella groups, etc. The IM may coordinate these sessions (identifying facilitators/panelists, managing attendees, event logistics, etc.) and may also lead discussions as appropriate.
  • Cultivating and sharing knowledge with the Governance Committee, including (but not limited to) disseminating materials and delivering presentations on topics impacting the sector as appropriate
  • Managing funder commitments and reporting, and participating in select fundraising activities as appropriate (with the approval of the Governance Committee)
