Volunteer: CORPORATE SPONSOR ATTRACTION

If you consider yourself a community cheerleader, friend to all, and lover of LiFE, this opportunity is for YOU! You don't need to have been personally affected by the topic of suicide to appreciate the value of LiFE.

This is a FUN position that will engage your passion for LiFE and the prevention of suicide attempt and death here in Washington County and beyond. 

PLEASE NOTE: It is hoped that with success in securing corporate sponsorship donations, this opportunity will transition from a volunteer role to a paid employee position.

You will...

Utilize existing tools for the tracking of all sponsor engagement for staff and Board reporting Identify businesses and professional groups believed to be philanthropic by nature or have one or more ties to the topic of suicide ideation, attempt, or loss Implement sponsorship strategies in order to maximize financial sponsorship donation revenues Contact and meet with prospective sponsors and explain how they can play a vital role in saving the lives of those who struggle with suicide ideation Ensure appropriate delivery of sponsorship programs at every level of the commitment Confirm that sponsors are integrated into as many aspects of promotional campaigns as possible... recognizing how much we appreciate their support Seek new sponsors by welcoming referrals and searching different avenues such as the existing target list, LOH website, social media, surveys, online searches, etc

Oh! And did we mention that our downtown, West Bend office is said to be one of the most FUN and family style atmospheres?! Want to stop in and see what it means to be inspired EVERY DAY? Stop in today, please respond to this post or email sarah@lifeofhopeproject.org to get started!
