Office Assistant: Most office volunteer opportunities occur around specialized projects and/or events. Although time commitment can vary, based on project length and deadlines, office volunteers can expect to invest 4 to 12 hours per month for maximum effectiveness. Flexibility in scheduling and the ability to work from home are a plus of these volunteer opportunities. Some examples include: data entry; mail assistance (stamping, sealing and addressing envelopes by hand; and filing/organizational tasks.
FDL Says No More Phase II Engagement of Men & Boys: We will look to engage men and high school boys in several focus groups designed to hear their perspectives on the topics of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse/neglect as a data collection method. A core group of focus group participants may then be asked to partner with Women’s Fund Board and staff, as well as agency reps from ASTOP, Solutions Center and Agnesian/SSM DV Program to determine best practices for engaging men and boys in changing attitudes and reducing violence toward women and children in Fond du Lac County.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force: We hope to utilize the time, personal experiences and expertise of individuals who represent traditionally marginalized groups (people of color, indigenous people, LGBTQIA+ community) who can partner with Board members to examine the current state of the Women’s Fund diversity and inclusion efforts, develop a SWOT analysis of present-day fitness surrounding this topic and propose steps to move the agency forward in service to all women and girls.
Girls Grant-Making Group: We hope to call on high school girls (juniors and seniors) to work with Women’s Fund staff and Board members to develop what we hope will be an annual grant cycle where local girls are empowered to learn about programming that benefits the girls of Fond du Lac County and engage funding to sustain $10,000 annually to go to such causes. This is a subgroup of girls who will evaluate grant applications and decide how the $10,000 will be spent.
