What did Lesley have to offer?
I am interested in working on this project because of the organization's mission to promote environmental awareness using new media. Additionally, I enjoy thinking of ways to cultivate donor relationships. I recently left AIDS Walk this past year after my decision to move to New York. After living bi-coastally and working for AIDS Walk Los Angeles and AIDS Walk New York I unfortunately had to leave a job that I loved but I knew I wanted to stay in one city. I hope to still be involved with the community and Leave It Better is a wonderful cause with a modern approach on increasing awareness that I believe will succeed in reaching out to many donors and volunteers. I spent five years working in the Fundraising Department of AIDS Walk Los Angeles and AIDS Walk New York. I worked directly with the Event Director, participants, teams, and volunteers. I faciliated the outreach and fundraising strategy for teams by developing an e-communication timeline, organizing phonebanks, presenting workshops, and creating website content. Moreover, I managed participant databases for over 3,000 teams and prepared daily and weekly reports to analyze progress toward meeting department fundraising and recruitment goals.
