Volunteer Opportunities 

 

Outreach Volunteer (various location): FACS is frequently invited to have a table or booth at events, fairs and festivals in the community. Outreach Volunteers represent FACS and answer questions at these tabling events. The volunteers are provided with the informational materials to set up at the table and with answers to FAQs. Tabling events generally last two to three hours and may be in the evening or on a weekend. This position allows for a flexible and on-call time commitment. Volunteers should be friendly, personable, and excited to share the work of FACS’ programs with the community. You can sign up for an event HERE or email jackie@faithforclimate.org to be contacted when events come up. 

 

Grant Support Volunteer: The FACS grant volunteer prepares and tasks volunteers to write grants for submission. Time demands are flexible but actual grant submissions require working on a deadline.  While some of the work is administrative, (Time commitment: varies.) Grant-related tasks include:

  • Reading through newsletters to identify grant opportunities
  • Researching grants 
  • Managing the grants calendar
  • Scheduling meetings, matching grants to programs, and finding precedent in earlier submitted grants
