Strong volunteer argumentative writers needed to write drafts of compelling, engaging donor communications, gift proposals and narrative reports for small-staff, big-impact Jewish charity, for a flexible 5-15 hours/month according to your schedule. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. This is an opportunity for engaged, supportive mentorship, as the role reports directly to the Executive Director. MAZON Canada is the Jewish response to hunger. We are a grassroots community foundation that feeds both Jewish and non-Jewish Canadians in need on behalf of our community. We do this supporting food projects across the country - including food banks, school nutrition programs, hot meals at shelters, community gardens and more – while engaging our community towards advocacy and education. Our work impacts people of all faiths, ethnicities, ages, and abilities. Our small, dynamic staff (currently consisting of 3 people) is committed to making the workplace we wish to see in the world: communicative, colourful, effective, enjoyable, and mutually supportive. When we grow, our organization grows – and when our organization grows, we move one step closer to a Canada without hunger. Knowledge of the Canadian Jewish community and culture is preferred, but being Jewish is not a requirement.
To apply, please send a cover letter and 2 relevant writing samples to Izzy Waxman, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Samples should be between 1-10 pages each. "Relevant" will be interpreted broadly, and might include: a cause that matters to you, a social justice issue, a grant proposal, a letter of thanks, a personal essay, a journalistic piece on a charity or social movement. No published history is required.
