We are recruiting for a Community Fundraising Volunteer who will volunteer in the successful Community Fundraising Team at Mind, with a specific focus on our flagship fundraising product, Crafternoon. This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable community and events fundraising experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work and development of a mass participation fundraising product. The role offers the opportunity to gain a working knowledge of how a new mass fundraising product is brought to market, as well as wider understanding of community and events fundraising.
We pride ourselves on our excellent stewardship to all our fundraising supporters, from phone calls, emails, enewsletters, letters and post-event receptions. The Community Fundraising Volunteer will be involved with stewardship for Crafternoon, updating our database, managing fundraising materials and planning some communications. You will have the opportunity to undertake research projects and get some real experience with fundraising supporters.
The Community Team sits within the Community, Events and Fundraising Development Team within the Public Fundraising Unit and is made up of 30 fundraisers working across Mind’s portfolio of fundraising events and products. The team raises approximately £10 million gross income per year for Mind’s work.
Mind is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff, and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
The role is flexible and we are looking for someone who can volunteer from our Stratford Office, East London for ideally, 3 days per week for four months. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of travel up to £15 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.
