Volunteer Fundraising Officer: Job Description

The Tanzania Women Research Foundation (TAWREF) is seeking a volunteer Fundraising Officer to guide strategy and implement action plans relating to charitable and partnership fundraising.  This role would be ideal for a graduate student or team, retired individual or couple, global minded non-profit organization or church sponsor.
