KC Area Conservation NGO Seeking Hands-on Board Members (American Wolf Foundation)

Offer Valid: 02/14/2021 - 05/31/2021
American Wolf Foundation was formed in 2018 in Kansas City with a primary goal of conserving the most endangered wolf in the world, the American red wolf (Canis rufus). Historically native to Missouri and the Southeast, this species has dwindled to only 8 known wolves in the wild. Our current efforts are focused on helping double the captive breeding population to around 500, which is what the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says is necessary for the species' genetic diversity and before any further reintroductions into the wild. This requires adding 50 new enclosures at existing and prospective breeding facilities, each of which can cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. To achieve this goal, in November 2019, we launched our Red Wolf Enclosure Campaign and are fundraising to provide small $5,000 grants to breeding facilities. We are preparing to issue our first grants by March 31, 2021, and will need to enhance our fundraising to provide additional grants. We have a lofty goal of providing thirty (30) $5,000 grants, as currently only 20 of the 50 enclosures necessary are secured.

As a relatively new non-profit, we need active Board members willing to be hands-on and do some or any of the following things:

  • social media and public relations

  • fundraising

  • grant-writing

  • website enhancements

  • event planning

  • organization recordkeeping

  • recruiting additional Board members

We will take any good help we can get! Financial contributions for board members are $10/mo. or $120/yr. We request a 3 year commitment, but are negotiable. Nonprofit experience a plus, but not required. Board experience not necessary.

This Volunteer Opportunity is promoted by Nonprofit Connect.
