Volunteering Opportunity: Fundraising Volunteer

Free Tibet is seeking a Fundraising Volunteer to help manage our supporter database and merchandise fulfilment. Previous fundraising or database experience is desirable but not essential. We are looking for someone who can commit to a minimum of two days a week (over a 3 month period), who is able to work independently and who has keen attention to detail. The Fundraising Volunteer will form an essential part of the fundraising team, assisting in the inputting and selection of data from our supporter database and other related duties. The volunteer will also be involved with supporting merchandise fulfilment for the Free Tibet online shop. There will be opportunities to get involved in other areas of fundraising (e.g. dealing with supporter queries, drafting copy, research and events) and this role will provide a valuable insight into the running of a small not-for-profit organisation.

The Volunteer’s primary tasks will include:

  • Database administration: Inputting new donations, subscriptions, memberships, returned mail, cancellations and change of details onto the database.
  • Supporter services: Assisting the fundraising team by responding to supporter queries; preparing Welcome Packs for new supporters and sending correspondence to members and supporters regarding Direct Debits, memberships, donations and any other relevant mail.
  • Merchandise: Fulfilling merchandise orders; processing orders on the ‘Shopify’ online store; and assisting with stock checking.
  • General administrative support: Our volunteers may be required to perform general administrative tasks relevant to the smooth running of the office.
  • Other: There may be opportunities to draft copy for the website, magazine and catalogue; assisting the Fundraising Officer with merchandise purchasing and marketing; involvement in meetings and Free Tibet events.

Please email your CV and cover letter (maximum one page) explaining why you would like to volunteer with us to chris@freetibet.org by July 31st 2018.

We are looking for somebody who is available to volunteer two days per week for a minimum period of three months. Free Tibet will provide a stipend of £8.50 per day.
