The Community Fundraising Team is an integral part of The Charity Fundraising Portfolio, with an income target of £3m in 22/23 and the team consists of Community Fundraisers based across the UK. Our role is to provide fundraising advice & support to our Supporter Groups, Community Organisations, Regional Corporates, Volunteers & Events.
How can you help?
We are recruiting a team of Charity Ambassadors to help develop engagement across each Region, to maximise opportunities to raise funds and increase support from the Community. You will be actively involved with The Charity on the ground and play a key role working alongside the Regional Community Fundraisers, as and when required:
- Identifying various opportunities in your local area to raise awareness of The Charity & our wide range of Fundraising Campaigns. This could anything from contacting your local supermarket’s 'Community Champion’ and organising an information stand and bucket collection or supporting a Supporter Group meet up in your area.
- Representing The Charity in your area, by undertaking presentations & cheque collections at schools, local companies & community groups
- Helping us to recruit new fundraisers and supporting those who are already signed up for a campaign, in your area. For example, attending a local Twilight Walk or promoting The Big Bake to local companies.
What impact will you have?
By amplifying The Charity's voice in your local area, you'll help increase the impact of fundraising campaigns & help grow funds and support us in accelerating a cure for everyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.
We’re looking for people who are:
- Passionate about the Charity and our vision
- Flexible and willing to get involved as and when opportunities arise
- Confident and comfortable in undertaking presentations to a wide range of audiences
- Skilled at spotting new opportunities to raise awareness and funds
- Friendly, approachable and able to communicate at all levels
- A team player, who is also able to work on their own initiative
We particularly encourage applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
What can you gain from volunteering?
- You’ll join a friendly, passionate team and develop an understanding of how this team at The Charity operates.
- The opportunity to network with other volunteers and play a key role in the brain tumour community.
- You’ll have the opportunity to utilise your existing skills, while developing and learning new ones to take forward into the future
Initially, we envisage a minimum of 2 or 3 days per month, depending on the regional focus, and this will also be guided by whether you are researching new awareness raising opportunities in your area, or setting up a school presentation for example. Flexibility if a key part of the role as we are often presented with exciting opportunities to raise awareness or funds, at short notice.
You will receive training from the Community Fundraising Team and ongoing direction from a Regional Community Fundraiser, who will be your key contact. We carry out reference checks for all individuals who will be volunteering with us on a regular basis. Volunteers will be required to complete some internal data protection and disclosure documentation before commencing the role. Volunteers must be over 18. We encourage volunteers to claim for any reasonable expenses that are incurred in the course of their volunteering with the Charity. Find out more in our expenses policy.
