How to become a Volunteer Corporate Fundraiser


Thinking of spending some time as a Volunteer Corporate Fundraiser?

Volunteer Corporate Fundraisers raise money for charities in numerous ways, from organising payroll giving to agreeing on sponsorship and creating partnered initiatives. This role often suites people who have a good understanding of the way that businesses operate and know how to build long-lasting relationships with stakeholders. In all, Corporate Fundraisers are drumming up the support for the organisation or charity through businesses instead of individuals.
