Description

EFEC’s mission is to support education and the intellectual and emotional growth of students, specifically focusing on equitable access to in-school enrichment, mental health services, and efforts to recognize and retain top teacher talent. EFEC believes an equitable education for all youth, regardless of socio-economic background, is crucial to alleviating poverty and allowing every person an opportunity to contribute to society. The EFEC AEA is the central coordinating entity for a diverse set of EFEC stakeholders. The AEA will communicate with volunteers and school communities to promote and champion EFEC, provide fundraising assistance, and help ensure events and programs run efficiently while effectively communicating mission and impact. The AEA works directly with the Executive Director (ED) who is responsible for nonprofit operations including program and event management, donation tracking, database management, fundraising campaigns, timely thank you letters, sponsor recognition and coordination, grant writing and reporting. EFEC is based in Eagle County, Colorado, a rural mountain community adjacent to the White River National Forest and two world-renowned ski resorts within 15 min of each other. The area is quite philanthropic and home to 250+ nonprofits creating a very competitive climate for donor retention. EFEC’s role is crucial for communicating the importance of a quality education, the challenges facing underfunded schools, and the damaging results of state funding shortfalls. Despite the school district’s proximity to mountain resorts, families of students and the educators who serve them struggle to survive. Eagle County has a large, recognizable socio-economic gap that has been identified by the Colorado Health Foundation as one of four rural areas with the greatest inequities. An EFEC VISTA can enjoy a beautiful outdoor environment within an actively collaborative community serving a large population with remarkable need.
