Deputy fundraising group coordinator

The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of people who are blind or partially sighted never leave home alone. Guide Dogs empowers visually impaired people to do that and relies on the support of the public to fund its services.

The Deputy Fundraising Group Coordinator works with and supports the Fundraising Group Coordinator to coordinate a group of volunteers to raise funds through events or other activities, delegating tasks to other members of the group as required and being the key contact in the local area.

 

The role includes:

Organising and attending events such as Guide Dogs tea parties, Pub Quizzes, bowling nights, sponsored walks and collections in your local area.

Encouraging local businesses, schools and groups to name their own guide dog puppy.

Building relationships with local networks, socials groups, schools and businesses to encourage them to host their own event in support of Guide Dogs.

Working as part of Guide Dogs’ fundraising team with staff and volunteers.

Liaising with the Community Fundraising team and informing them of events in your area.

Making sure fundraising policies and procedures are followed.
