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.

​Wiltshire (/ˈwɪlt.ʃər, -ʃɪər/;[2] abbreviated Wilts) is a historic and ceremonial county in South West England with an area of 3,485 km2 (1,346 square miles).[3] It is landlocked and borders the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. The county town was originally Wilton, after which the county is named, but Wiltshire Council is now based in the county town of Trowbridge. Within the county's boundary are two unitary authority areas, Wiltshire and Swindon, governed respectively by Wiltshire Council and Swindon Borough Council.

Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is noted for being the location of the Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles (which together are a UNESCO Cultural and World Heritage site[4]) and other ancient landmarks, and as a training area for the British Army. The city of Salisbury is notable for its medieval cathedral. Important country houses open to the public include Longleat, near Warminster, and the National Trust's Stourhead, near Mere.
