NYIC VISTA, Fundraising at CIANA
This position is part of the 2023 - 2024 NYIC VISTA program, which is run by the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and places AmeriCorps VISTAs – referred to as NYIC VISTAs – at nonprofit organizations throughout New York State where they build organizational capacity through communications, fundraising, program development/outreach and/or volunteer management projects. The capacity that they build is then used by their host organizations to advance their work on providing community members with anti-poverty services (e.g., ESL/ESOL, legal, youth, health, housing, employment/career). NYIC VISTAs are supported by the NYIC with several multi-day in-person trainings throughout the year, weekly webinars, monthly check-ins with NYIC staff, ongoing networking opportunities and general support.

CIANA's mission is to prevent the growing marginalization of new immigrants and refugees from highly traditional societies through specialized transitional services, leading to their successful integration into the socio-economic and civic life of America while continuing to maintain pride in their cultural heritage.
The NYIC VISTA will work on fundraising projects (e.g., event planning, grant applications, donor mailings) in support of the organization's direct service/programmatic work. Fluency in Arabic, Bangla and/or Spanish is a plus.
