DESCRIPTION
Are you enlivened and adept at fundraising for eco-social non-profits from the cryptocurrency community? Are you passionate about the intersection of decentralized networks, rights of nature, indigenous sovereignty, commoning, and ecological markets? We’d love to have you join our team at Regen Foundation!

BACKGROUND
Regen Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity incorporated in 2018. Public charities are required to receive at least 33% of their receipts from unrestricted “less than 2% donors” (as the non-profit tax code puts it). Due to our income-generating crypto asset portfolio, we’re estimating that we need to raise roughly $1mm from less than 2% donors. If you fail in achieving this goal, Regen Foundation will transition to a private foundation during 2022. This transition wouldn’t compromise the core of our work, but retaining public charity status will allow us to engage in a much broader swath of activities in support of our community, and for that reason, we’d like to take a shot at it!

YOUR OKRs
Objective: retain the public charity status of Regen Foundation
Key Result: raise $1mm in public support during the current calendar year from donors making gifts smaller than $50k

WITH WHOM WILL YOU WORK CLOSELY?
You will report to our Executive Director—Revathi Kollegala
You will be supported by the President of the Board—Will Szal (a cofounder of Regen Network)
You will work with our Program Officer—Austin Wade Smith—to develop the programming that this fundraising will support

REQUIREMENTS
Ability to deftly navigate the technical complexity and impute the charisma of 501(c)(3) public charity fundraising
Ability to successfully fundraise from the Cosmos SDK blockchain community (a $100b+ donor base)

BONUS
Passion for climate justice, equity, and indigenous rights.

TIME ZONE CONSIDERATIONS
Kollegala is in India
Szal and Smith are on the East Coast of the United States

How Will Regen Foundation Assess My Application?
Finalists will be asked to develop and present a plausible strategy to achieve the stated OKRs, tailored to our community and context
