We are seeking an ambitious and energetic fundraising manager to lead the stewardship and growth of QSA’s supporter income – building on a base of highly loyal individual supporters and Quaker meetings around the UK – and to support the head of fundraising and communications in growing other areas of fundraising, especially from trusts and foundations.
In the last two years we have introduced fundraising challenge events and are developing plans for supporter engagement events and potentially a patron scheme. The fundraising manager will need to drive forward these initiatives as well as bringing their own ideas for acquiring new supporters and developing major donors.
The fundraising manager will also play an important role in maintaining and growing QSA’s portfolio of grants, and will ideally bring experience of securing £50k-plus funding agreements from trusts/foundations or the public or corporate sectors.
