Do you (or someone you know) want a part in leading the way for nonprofit success in Cowley County?

We need your help identifying individuals excited about working to strengthen our community! It might be someone you know. Or, it could be YOU.

Legacy Foundation has just been awarded four Washburn VISTA Fellows positions. These are 12-month assignments. The selected AmeriCorps members will work with Legacy Foundation to grow grant writing, capacity building, and volunteerism in nonprofit organizations throughout Cowley County.

Benefits include health insurance, student loan forgiveness/education award (even transferable to grandchildren), and a living allowance. Of course there is the added benefit of serving and making a difference in our community, as well as the fun of working with us at Legacy Foundation!

Anyone can serve. You just need to be at least 18 years of age. Maybe you're taking a "gap" year or just finished college. It might be that you've recently retired and, though you're ready to slow down, the rocker isn't calling to you just yet. Perhaps you're part of a family where you're fortunate to have your needs met, so you want to use your time and energy to make a difference with your neighbors right here at home in Cowley County.

Whatever your circumstances or reasons, if this opportunity sounds interesting, please contact Yazmin at 620-221-7224 or yazmin.legacy@yahoo.com or forward this information to a friend now. Our timeline for placement is short.

Together we're creating a stronger future for Cowley County and our surrounding area!
