The mission of the Cancer Support Community Los Angeles (CSCLA) is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
For 35 years, CSCLA has been the leader of psycho-social care for cancer patients and their families. CSCLA offers a wide rage of services that are meant to complement – not replace – the medical treatment that cancer patients receive. By treating the whole person – not just the illness – it has been proven that cancer patients have an increased rate of recovery and remission. CSCLA services include counseling, support groups, healthy lifestyle classes, educational workshops and seminars, family-specific social programming, and social activities for all to enjoy. Most importantly, all services are free of charge.
CSCLA’s Development Department is seeing volunteer help to assist with prospect research and playing a vital role in in-kind solicitation. Additionally, the summer volunteers will have hand-on opportunities to assist the Development Manager in event planning for the August and October fundraisers. Interested volunteers can also play important roles in assisting the Development Manager plan the year-end appeal.
CSCLA is great environment to have direct contact with the community that benefits from the work of staff. For volunteers who want to see the impact that non-profits have on the community, this is the opportunity for you! This is a great opportunity for individuals interested in non-profit fundraising to work alongside professionals with high success rates and large donor portfolios. CSCLA believe in team growth, and we encourage curious volunteers to ask career questions and advice in exchange for a serious commitment to helping CSCLA during an exciting but aggressive new Development Plan.
Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Debby Mariscal, Development Manager (and UCLA almuna!) for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
