This opportunity is a great way to learn more about the way in which small organizations raise money to support their programs. The volunteer will have the opportunity to meet (at least virtually) a number of local artists, other people who care about nature and hone skills related to event planning, marketing and communications.
How will the organization benefit?
The organization will benefit tremendously as this event will allow us to not only raise much needed funds, but given the virtual nature of the event, we hope it will allow us to reach a much wider audience of people who care about nature and who will, in turn, follow the organization and potentially become supporters or volunteers.
