About the organization
The Veterans Center of North Texas serves 7 North Texas counties and offers services to 165,000 area Veterans. This all-Volunteer non-profit is located in Plano, TX and collaborates with nearly 200 service provider partners to offer referral and financial assistance in 12 critical areas. The successful candidate will have a passion for working with grantors, funders, and donors to enable the Veterans Center to provide the services and assistance to both underserved and struggling Veteran Communities. The successful candidate will work with a number of seasoned professionals who have solid track records in both the military and civilian communities. The Veterans Center is an all-Volunteer organization with Veterans and those with family members currently serving on active duty. Our Volunteers range in age from 16 to 83 and from ranks of Corporal to Lieutenant General. We work with Veterans of all eras and of all services to find referrals and financial assistance.
The Development & Community Outreach VISTA will analyze our grant funding program and our community outreach program. We want to expand our reach into the community through social media and other forms of communication and we want to maintain frequent contact with our grantors and donors. Our VISTA Member would be responsible for building on the programs and processes we have in place and expanding them to provide better services to our Veteran clients and our stakeholders. Social media presence and persistence are key to the VISTA position support.
