Project Background & Description

The Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits (ANN) mission is strengthening communities by increasing the influence and capacity of Nevada’s nonprofit sector.

According to 2008 IRS statistics, there 6,626 nonprofits in Nevada. 10% (one in ten) of Nevadans work for a nonprofit (U.S. Congressional Report). 21.4% of adults in Nevada volunteer for a charity.

ANN has experience and capacity to provide capacity building roundtables and a weekly GrantStation Insider funding newsletter “free” to nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers. For “paid” members, ANN also has the capacity to provide unique benefits and savings, such as group purchasing discounts, Grant Station funding database, savings on workshops and webinars, and much more.

While ANN has built the capacity to serve nonprofits, because it is a relatively new corporation, it is important to increase awareness state-wide, design and market products and services to nonprofits, as well as identify sponsors from the for-profit sector.  The Marketing & Fundraising Online Specialist will assist ANN’s VISTA team and Board of Directors.

Moreover, because it is a “green and lean” organization, ANN relies on the Internet, its website (powered by WordPress) and social media platforms (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google Plus) to help us communicate, promote events, and automate business functions.  The Marketing & Fundraising Online Specialist will be an active player in ANN’s Social Media Campaign, VISTA team and in assist in the development and management of online systems for ANN’s virtual business model.
