MACAA Fund Development VISTA

Monticello Area Community Action Agency (MACAA)

About the organization

Monticello Area Community Action Agency (MACAA) leads the effort to eradicate poverty and improve the lives of low-income people in Central Virginia. MACAA provides programs that benefit preschool-aged children, teens and adults in our communities, which include: Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa, and Nelson Counties, and the City of Charlottesville. MACAA is pursuing unrestricted or temporarily restricted funds that will allow for program development and enhancement in response to critical community needs in the service area. These funds will support pilot programs/collaborations that mirror innovative anti-poverty approaches that have proven to be successful in similar communities, community action agencies, and/or community action programs across the region and country. With this VISTA, MACAA intends to build the capacity of the agency and aims to be prepared to fund innovative programs that will measurably reduce poverty rates in the region.


A VISTA team member will develop and implement a fund development plan that will expand the capacity of the Monticello Area Community Action Agency (MACAA) to serve vulnerable low-income populations in the service area. The VISTA member will research innovative programs and collaborations that have been successful at similarly sized community action agencies that will measurably reduce poverty rates in the region. This VISTA will complete grant research and narrative development, donor prospecting, cultivation, solicitation, stewardship planning, annual and special campaign support, fundraising event planning, and implementation. These funds will allow MACAA to financially support innovative programs that will measurably reduce poverty rates in the region. The VISTA will also create a grant management plan to maintain sustainability of fund development to support the anti-poverty plans of MACAA.
