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.

​Cirencester (/ˈsaɪrənsɛstər/ ⓘ, occasionally /ˈsɪstər/ ⓘ; see below for more variations)[3] is a market town in Gloucestershire, England, 80 miles (130 km) west of London. Cirencester lies on the River Churn, a tributary of the River Thames. It is the eighth largest settlement in Gloucestershire and the largest town within the Cotswolds. It is the home of the Royal Agricultural University, the oldest agricultural college in the English-speaking world, founded in 1840. The town had a population of 20,229 in 2021.[1]

The Roman name for the town was Corinium, which is thought to have been associated with the ancient British tribe of the Dobunni, having the same root word as the River Churn.[4] The earliest known reference to the town was by Ptolemy in AD 150. The town's Corinium Museum has an extensive Roman collection.

Cirencester is twinned with the town of Itzehoe, in the Steinburg region of Germany.[5]
