We are very excited to announce the hiring of Mondoweiss’s new Director of Development – Kate Casa.
Mondoweiss community, we have some bittersweet organizational news to share — Tova Perlmutter, our wonderful Executive Director, will be moving on later this spring. Tova has been central in our development over the past five years, helping to move Mondoweiss from a fledgling news operation of four staff people into a mature, stable organization with a core staff of ten. As we prepare for her exit at the end of June we are launching a search for a Director of Development to continue our impressive growth.
Mondoweiss is hiring an Individual Giving Manager. Inspired to build relationships with donors, the Individual Giving Manager will help increase Mondoweiss’s capacity to inform the public about human rights in Palestine. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis starting February 21; please apply as soon as possible.
Seeds of Peace and the Tami Steinmetz Center at Tel Aviv University were both created in the early 90s to further the Oslo vision. Now the Steinmetz center has closed and Seeds of Peace is in crisis, with a former camp director calling for resistance against “oppression.”
Mondoweiss brings you stories of people creating real change toward justice for Palestine. Like you, we know that amplifying their voices increases their impact. Before the year ends, we need to raise $200,000 to continue this work–and we can do it if you give today. If you and others provide $100,000, that will unlock a challenge fund of $100,000 more. Please join hundreds of others to make possible ongoing coverage of ChangeMakers for Palestine.
Introducing “ChangeMakers”: a new feature on the site where we’ll be highlighting inspiring stories of people or organizations creating real change. Please share your suggestions for this feature — stories we published in the past, or that you’d like to see us cover in the future.
We are very proud that for years Mondoweiss has shared the words of writers in Gaza with you and tens of thousands of other readers. And we are fortunate because two generous donors have challenged our readers to contribute now in support of Mondoweiss, We Are Not Numbers, and the writers whose work we publish.
We believe that one story at a time can change minds. Mondoweiss publishes stories that the mainstream media won’t, and now thanks to hundreds of generous gifts from readers like you, we’re so close to wrapping up our campaign. We need just $2,500 more in donations to unlock an additional $20,000 — all to support journalism for justice and freedom in Palestine.
If Sarah’s story spoke to you—or if you shared stories like hers to advance the cause of human rights in Palestine—we ask that you give today to help us meet our goal and keep Mondoweiss going strong.
