Peace Practices Development Team Invitation

PxPx Flight Deck group watches BDW demo
 Association Building Community is establishing a Development Team to help us plan and implement growth, especially as this growth supports our Peace Practices project. This two to three person team will have the support of a Fundraising Task Force, include an executive advisor or contract professional with long term industry experience and Board-level access, and an intern who both has and wants more experience in development.

Who we are: We are a Bay Area nonprofit with an internationally seed-funded, proven and successful curriculum that teaches Conflict Done Well ™ so that peace may be practiced sustainably, both short and long term, by anyone of any age, in any culture, as though it were a martial art.

Who you are:

  • You are a professional with a proven fundraising record.

    • If you are a senior or retired professional willing to work pro bono to advance a truly meaningful project with far-reaching peace-making impact, then you are the adviser we are looking for! Please interact with the Board to help us choose effective strategies as you work with our CEO, Program and Operations Manager, and interns.

    • If you are an early or mid-career development professional working part-time contracts, please send us examples of “paying for your own position and then some” successes, lessons learned, and let us know your availability and rate.

  • Finally, we are also searching for self motivated interns who are interested in the field of Development within nonprofits and in working with people who have not only survived but have launched vital work, funded its beginning, and flourished during a time of profound financial challenge.


Work as a core member of the Fundraising Task Force, providing information, feedback and research as needed:
