About this opportunity

Fundraising duties at Lillian’s include:

  • approaching businesses, local authorities and individuals to encourage donations.
  • organising and helping with fundraising activities such as sponsored or promotional events.
  • sourcing donations for raffle and silent auctions.
  • recruiting volunteers and coordinating their work.
  • planning donation campaigns and events, along with the communications needed to ensure they are a success.
  • ensuring that donors and funders are kept informed about how their money is being used.
  • using specialist software to keep records, manage donations and send communications.

Coming up with new ways to acquire funding (through events, online advertising, celebrity promotions or legacy-giving campaigns, for example) is a particularly important part of the job. At Lillian’s, fundraisers manage communications and events for donors. Charity fundraisers may need to work long or unsociable hours when events or campaign deadlines are approaching. You may also need to travel to events and to meet representatives from funding organisations.
