Charities fundraise through a variety of means, from street collections to marathon running to gifts from companies. One of the lesser-known and fascinating areas of fundraising is making applications for grants from trust funds to family trusts.
This role presents an exciting opportunity to volunteer within QEF's Fundraising and Marketing Department. You will be assisting with trust fundraising activities across the QEF Family of Charities.
The purpose of this role is to research potential trusts using our online databases, help to prepare funding bids, make applications to trusts and write reports to current funders. You'll be able to see how money you help to raise makes a difference in our work.
This role will give you a full insight into the way a fundraising department works. It is a unique opportunity to develop and gain new skills which could help with future employment opportunities, especially in this specialist trusts area. You will also have an opportunity to develop your interpersonal skills, whilst working with a friendly team.
It's not necessary to have experience in the fundraising field, but we'd like someone enthusiastic and motivated.
Note that training will be given internally, in particular with the database Raiser's Edge, which is used by many fundraising teams in the sector.
