Saving Lives One Cat at a Time

Fundraising Chair – Board Member Position

Oakland TNR Coalition’s mission is to provide proper vet care for feral, stray, homeless, and abandoned cats and manage community cat colonies in the Oakland and surrounding neighborhoods, place rescued cats into forever homes, educate and promote animal welfare and cat rescue, and to educate the public on the importance of the Trap, Neuter, Release program and proper community cat colony management.


The Fundraising Chair will support the work of the Oakland TNR Coalition and provide mission-based leadership and strategic development. While day-to-day operations are led by Oakland TNR Coalition’s chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO), the Board-CEO-CFO relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. Fundraising Chair responsibilities include:


  • Creating a fundraising plan to ensure the organization is fully funded for an annual budget approved by the Board
  • Creating a plan to bridge any budgetary gaps and oversee implementation of that plan with the full support of the Board
  • Developing personal relationships with donors to ensure good organizational standing with the community
  • Planning and implementation of fundraising events such as but not limited to raffles, galas, donor drives, social media campaigns, crowdfunding, email campaigns, restaurant fundraisers, and corporate sponsorships
  • Grant research, writing, and application for funding various organization projects

*It is important to note that the current Board of Directors at Oakland TNR Coalition believes firmly that despite multiple positions and titles, our organization can only function on collaboration and full support for one another. The Board of Directors will provide as much help, guidance, suggestions, and support as possible to help our new Fundraising Chair be as successful as possible.*
