Volunteering is a heart-warming way to support Phinney's mission!
Volunteering for Phinney's can be a super gratifying way to hone your professional skills and pursue your personal interests all for the love of people and pets!
And right now we've got several open positions in the areas of:
Table Event Coordinators – Do you like reconnaisance missions and project management?! We're looking for volunteers to take the lead on researching and identifying events for Phinney's to participate in, such as recruiting fairs, festivals, large-scale nonprofit events like pet walks, etc. In this role, you'll recruit and coordinate other volunteers to work our exhibit tables, order supplies and make sure we create the necessary marketing materials for a given event, supervise the packing up and return of materials ahead of the next event, deposit donations, and make monthly reports to the Fundraising Committee on table event progress and results. We also need people to staff our tables!
Phinney's Calendar Coordinators – We may have an opportunity to make a 2023 calendar to raise funds for Phinney's. Those interested in being a calendar coordinator would be responsible for requesting donations to a group of donors (via email) who would buy a Calendar page, following up on their answers, collecting pictures of their pets (each month would be a different pet), or arranging for volunteer photographers to go take pictures at donor's homes, arranging the design of the calendar, arranging printing and collecting incoming funds. This project would start in July and the calendar would need to be ready by the end of November.
Senior Client Coordinators – We are looking for volunteers to assign incoming requests from low-income pet parents in need to our group of Client Coordinators (and anyone with previous client coordinator experience is strongly urged to apply)! This role requires availability to check emails and texts at least once a day and the ability to discern which Client Coordinator is most suitable for each case. Those in this role should also be available to help them solve cases and be there to help when they can't finish a case on their own. If you're interested but don't yet have experience as a client coordinator, we still urge you to reach out because we could train you to become a client coordinator to get some experience under your belt so you could later apply for this more senior role!
Godparents Program Writers – We are looking for volunteers with a love of wordsmithing and a knack for interviewing to call our Godpet parents and interview them, collect pictures, and write stories, so we can update their profiles on our website. Check out our Godpet profiles to get a better sense of the type of writing style this job entails.
Associate PR/Press Relations Managers – Do you know any assignment editors, radio and/or TV producers, reporters, other local media professionals or social media influencers? If so, we'd love to talk to you! We are looking for volunteers with radio, TV, social media, and newspaper contacts here in Massachusetts to help our PR Manager with pitching story ideas about Phinney's to area editors, producers, and reporters.
Data Analyst – We are looking for data analytics professionals who enjoy analyzing and reporting on web, email and social media performance who can advise us on what we’re doing well and how we can improve engagement.
Video Producers – We are looking for volunteers who know how to create, edit, and publish videos so we can use video as a regular means for telling stories about the good Phinney's does and sharing tips that appeal to pet parents.
Volunteer Relations Coordinators – If you've got great people skills, enthusiasm and a genuine desire to understand our volunteers' needs this position may be right for you! Volunteer relations coordinators regularly call and/or email our volunteers to help them find their perfect spot within our organization and build and foster relationships with them.
