The Community Foundation of Crawford County (CFCC) is excited about the intern they have hired this summer. Through a grant from GIFT (Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow), the CFCC hired Jadin Wolf as a Development Intern. This internship was designed around Jadin’s unique areas of giftedness in an effort to both support the community and to increase her scope of knowledge around the nonprofit sector.
While not an exhaustive job description, some of the projects Jadin will work on include: assisting the Friends of the Marengo Big Springs Old Town Church with their efforts to save the historic church building, CFCC development efforts like tabulating and recording the results of a mailed survey, and assisting Breeden Memorial Library with its fundraising efforts to become a 501(c)(3) charity.
Jadin, a sophomore at Vincennes University, owns her own photography business, Dirt Road Designs and Photography. You can see some of the skills she possesses on her website: www.dirtroaddesignsandphotography.com. These skills can be employed to benefit nonprofit groups and nonprofits, predominately through their online presence. Her extra-curricular activities while in high school, even in her role this year volunteering with Miss Crawford County, will help her navigate the waters of fundraising and development work. Most of these realize the benefits of a good marketing plan. The CFCC hopes she can find ways to assist some of our local groups in achieving their fundraising needs, while also making plans for their own sustainability.
“We have so many wonderful nonprofit groups and charities in Crawford County. It’s a real joy to employ Jadin in this way because it will help them and allows Jadin to increase her own professional development and capacity as a business owner. We owe special thanks to Lilly Endowment Inc. for their continued support of the Community Foundation Internship program at GIFT and look forward to more opportunities like this in the coming years,” said Christine Harbeson, executive director at the Community Foundation of Crawford County.
