Individual Giving Fundraiser Volunteer Role at Castle Bromwich Historic Gardens

Castle Bromwich Historic Gardens are looking for an enthusiastic and imaginative volunteer who has experience with onsite and individual giving, preferably in the heritage or cultural sector.

With no regular grant support, the independent Gardens Trust is entirely dependent on raising its own funds through income generation, grant funding and gifts.

With the equivalent of £1,000 per day, 365 days a year to raise to cover ordinary costs, their fundraising work is a constant journey.

Everyone at the Gardens is involved in some way or another but they are now looking for dedicated and specialist support from a volunteer.

Tasks of this role might include:
  • Supporting staff, volunteers and trustees in their activities to raise funds.
  • Managing and further developing existing schemes to make them efficient and productive.
  • Identifying new opportunities.
  • Producing (social) media materials which encourage members of the public to financially support.
  • Gathering data and ‘good news’ stories to support a variety of fundraising channels.
  • Encouraging members of the public to commit to making legacy arrangements in favour of the Society.
  • Administering and improving donor and funding database.
About you:

You will not be expected to be a professional fundraiser, this is a volunteer role!

You have an understanding, even if basic, of heritage and cultural heritage charities and at least some of the following:

  • You have experience of individual giving/community fundraising, either through your work or previous volunteering.
  • You have a general understanding of corporate fundraising.
  • You are familiar with JustGiving, Google non-profits ads and/or and other online donation platforms.
  • You can write clearly and concisely.
  • You have a passion for and an understanding of what makes the community tick.
  • Basic design skills and experience of Canva or other visual platforms.
  • You’re reliable and able to work.

Days, hours, outcomes and place/mode of work are all negotiable but a commitment to at least an initial six month period is requested.
