Part time (10-30 hrs/wk)

We are seeking volunteer Fundraising Leads to join our small, remote team. Team members will support groups, causes & campaigns that deliver urgent change on climate, ecological & humanitarian crises. We'd love help in one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Donor Research: Identify potential foundation funders; use medium and long-term activist group needs and priorities; identify restricted vs non-restricted funding.
  • Grant Writing: Draft proposals and pass through content and copy-edit approval process; submit, follow-up, and track submissions.
  • Grant Reporting: Track and document reporting required for foundation funders.
  • Donor Outreach and Stewardship: Conduct outreach to major donor prospects to further relationships/donations; maintain relationships with existing and prospective major donors.
  • Public Giving: Manage crowdfund campaigns; oversee public fundraising communications.
  • High Net Worth Giving: Identify and onboard aligned individuals to fund key projects that match their interests
  • Cryptocurrency Giving: Research & deliver a fundraising strategy using alternative currencies.

In addition, all Fundraising Leads participate in weekly strategy calls, where they will have a chance to gain familiarity with and contribute to overall fundraising strategy and organisational direction. If interested and where possible, fundraising team members are also invited to learn more about other initiatives in the groups that they support.

As a Fundraising Lead, you would join a small and passionate team with lots of room to work independently and take on diverse and highly impactful projects. You would also gain exposure to innovative social movements and activist organisations and get the opportunity to meet other talented, dedicated individuals working to combat the climate crisis. Finally, you would be joining an organisation with core values that centre reflecting, learning and creating a healthy and resilient regenerative culture, principles which are reflected in our team environment.

Requirements: 

  • Experience and/or applicable transferable skills related to above areas of work
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and across cultures
  • Ability to commit at least 5 hours/week (no geographic/time zone requirement)
  • Access to a workspace suitable for remote work with reliable Internet connection
  • Interest in climate movements and climate justice

If you lack formal fundraising experience but feel that your skills and perspective would be of use to us, please consider sending in an application—we value proactivity, a keenness to learn and work quickly and effectively and commitment to climate movements above all else.
