Fundraising / Marketing + Design / Campaigns  

There are three areas in which Swipe out Hunger could grow considerably with your skills. We're not asking that you can fulfill a laundry list of needs (although that would be cool), we're looking for someone who's really awesome in at least one vertical so that we can harness that strength to fundamentally improve the organization. This will require self-direction, creativity, and outside-the-box thinking. Which one of these resonates most with you?

Fundraising: Develop relationships with individual, foundational and corporate donors.  Marketing/Design: Keep our website attractive. Your eye for design will keep messages and materials our office sends out top notch.  Campaigns: You see the finish line. That piece of policy or movement building or action that could make a huge difference against hunger. 

Do one of these categories excite you? Great, us too.


Start date: By September 9th. Will come on board as an independent contractor and arrangement will be reviewed after three months. 

Includes full membership to the Impact Hub Los Angeles.

Compensation: Commensurate with experience.

The position is full time and based in sunny Downtown Los Angeles., California
