Charity Community Fundraiser

​In this role, a charity fundraiser is in charge of organising events and activities that encourage people or organisations to contribute to the charity either by providing donations or by giving their time to the cause. A charity fundraiser builds relationships and explores new fundraising opportunities.

A charity fundraiser’s success is highly dependent on the relationships they are able to build and maintain. Below are some of the responsibilities of a charity fundraiser:

Secure funding by approaching trusts, businesses or individuals

Recruit volunteers to join the cause

Create and deliver communication campaigns for donations

Organise events or other activities that aim to generate donations or more generally increase awareness

Develop and manage web-based fundraising and online auctions when applicable

Continue to encourage supporters to maintain their regular donations and inspire new supporters through relationship development

Create and maintain performance reports to ensure clear visibility of the efforts required to reach the target

A charity fundraiser might have to deal with pushback from people who are either in a hurry or simply not interested.

Knowing how to deal with these situations without taking things personally is essential.

​Boston is a port and market town in Lincolnshire, on the east coast of England, about 100 miles (160 km) north of London. It is the largest town of the wider Borough of Boston local government district. The town itself had a population of 35,124 at the 2001 census,[1] while the borough had a total population of 66,900, at the ONS mid-2015 estimates.[2] It is north of Greenwich on the Prime Meridian.

Boston's most notable landmark is St Botolph's Church ("The Stump"), the largest parish church in England,[3] visible for miles around from the flat lands of Lincolnshire. Residents of Boston are known as Bostonians. Emigrants from Boston named several other settlements around the world after the town, most notably Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States.
