The Fund Development Committee is currently composed of two ECOSS staff members and two ECOSS board members. We are looking for additional enthusiastic, outgoing and professional individuals who are interesting gaining career experience in the nonprofit or event management field and who are willing and excited about representing ECOSS and our mission.

By volunteering with us, we hope to provide you with access to valuable experience, connection to the community, opportunities to make a difference and a gathering place for like-minded individuals. You will be provided with templates and scripts and all the support you need to make your time with us successful!

What we ask for in return is a  commitment of approximately 6 hours of your time per month (including monthly meetings) and more during event months (April and October) and the willingness to work together and be part of a team.
