What will I be doing?
- Attending meetings with other Volunteer Fundraising Group (VFG) members and/or helping on event days with planned fundraising activities
- Contributing ideas for fundraising to be planned and carried out by the VFG
- Researching local information and opportunities for further fundraising
- Helping to promote and market fundraising activities
- Providing support to external fundraisers, to be discussed with the Community Fundraiser on a case-by-case basis
- Keeping accurate records of fundraising activities and monies raised
There will also be opportunities within the fundraising group to take on areas of further responsibility, such as group leader or treasurer.
You will be in close contact with your local Community Fundraiser so all activities are clearly planned, agreed and executed in line with Society policies and procedures.
How does the role make a difference?
Regional fundraising is at the very centre of how we raise vital funds at a local level. The money we raise funds the delivery of universal services as well as the services we provide locally such as dementia cafes. It also helps to fund research into care for today, and a cure for tomorrow, as well as our campaigning work.
How will I be supported during my volunteering?
You will receive training to start your role and will have a dedicated role manager to support you. We will reimburse expenses such as travel in line with the Society’s policy.
Where, when and how often?
The amount of time committed varies depending on the activities of the Fundraising Group. It is generally a couple of hours a month for planning meetings, plus attendance at the fundraising activity organised by the group.
