Trusts and Grants Fundraiser
Furnishing Futures is the first charity in the UK to create trauma-informed, fully furnished and decorated homes for vulnerable women and children rehoused in social housing or living with furniture poverty after domestic abuse, at no cost to them.
We design and install beautiful, safe homes that make women and children feel cared for. We do this by taking good quality furniture donated by the interiors industry to reduce landfill waste and giving everything a woman needs. This helps break the cycle of poverty, boosts the confidence of disadvantaged women, and supports their mental and physical well-being.
We are looking for a freelance fundraiser to carry out the practical tasks needed to increase our capacity to manage our current grant and major relationships, to research and assess what new opportunities are out there, and to develop new and significant, multi-year funding relationships with trusts and foundations. We're looking to raise £150,000 over the coming six months. Since about 85% of our income currently comes from grant-making trusts and foundations, we aim to make this a focus of our fundraising efforts.
This is a remote working role, but we would like you to attend meetings at our office from time to time.
If this role interests you, we'd love to hear from you.
Please send a CV and a covering letter, which includes your daily fee, information on your fundraising record and success rates, and gives a view on how you would go about fundraising for our needs.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
