Opportunity description

To tap into significant sources of funding to propel the establishment of a revolutionary cutting-edge clinic to transform the lives of families where there are autistic children, and empower them to live to their full potential.

The role

To join us and actively help us create and implement a fundraising strategy that needs to bring in a six-figure turnover in 2017 and low-seven figures from 2018.

The strategy is likely to include inspiring significant donors with an interest in the area to sponsor parts (or all?) of the Project, and also to enrol corporations to donate money (and perhaps skills) and fundraise within the organisation.

We are in the process of putting together a brochure detailing our vision in a way intended to inspire potential donors (and other significant collaborators), so if a candidate comes on board soon, they can also help to shape this document.

 

Required skills

  • Fundraising strategy
  • Researching funders / writing proposals

Person description

What impact the opportunity will have

This role can truly make the difference that enables our clinic to become a reality and transform many lives.  Funding will be absolutely critical in making this happen.

What’s in it for the volunteer?

You will be an integral part of the inception of what could easily become a major charity that will accomplish globally significant changes that will have a critical impact on the lives of very many people who have and are associate with autism.

Our emerging culture is one of positivity and inspiration, and of a powerful energy directed towards the realisation of our goals.

You would be very welcome in our team; you will be supported and overseen by our Operations Director. We hope that it will be an extremely positive and energising opportunity for you personally.
