  • Organizing and promoting special WASH activities and competitions (World Water Day events, World Polio Day events, People of WASH photo and video competition).
  • Promotion of WASH breakout sessions at the RI Convention, including managing the recommendation process.
  • Other special assignments that may arise.

When founded in 2007, the WASH Rotary Action Group was organized as a (US) 501(c)4. It became apparent that if we were to work effectively with corporate donors and sponsors, we would need to also have a (US) 501(c)3 organization, which is doing business as the WASH Rotary Action Group Foundation.
 
The day-to-day operations of the WASH Rotary Action Group are handled by the Operations Team. We are seeking an experienced volunteer to fill the position of Fundraising Team Lead. This role includes developing a fundraising strategy which assists the organization in supporting its current budget and our annual World Water Summit and ongoing learning experiences. The role is a unique opportunity to shape the development and implementation of the WASH Rotary Action Group’s fundraising activities and make a valuable contribution to Rotary’s WASH Area of Focus.

  • The WASH Rotary Action Group Foundation (501(c)3) Board of Directors
  • WASH Rotary Action Group Ambassadors (serving Rotary Districts worldwide)
  • WASH Rotary Action Group members
  • Rotary International
  • The Rotary Foundation
  • Existing sponsors and donors
  • Prospective sponsors and donors
  • Potential partner organizations
 
Goals:
 
The successful candidate will identify a sub-team of like-minded individuals, and work with them to achieve the following goals:
 
  1. Nurture strong relationships with existing and potential sponsors and donors who support our budget and annual World Water Summit.
  2. Plan, develop, and implement a fundraising strategy, using an existing data base of past and present sponsors and donors.
  3. Develop potential new fundraising opportunities and relationships.
