Volunteering Opportunity: Fundraising Volunteer

Free Tibet is seeking a new Fundraising Volunteer to help manage our supporter database and merchandise. Previous fundraising or database experience is desirable but not essential. We are looking for someone who can commit to a minimum of one or two days a week (over a 4 month minimum 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 input and selection of data from our supporter database and other related duties. The volunteer will also be involved with supporting merchandise fulfilment from our Free Tibet online shop. There will be opportunities to get involved in other areas of fundraising and this role will provide a valuable insight into the running of a small not-for-profit organisation.

We are looking for someone who is available for one or two days a week, for a minimum of four months. Free Tibet will provide a stipend of £8.50 per day.

Does this sound like you? Please email your CV and cover letter (maximum one page) explaining why you would like to volunteer with us to kavita@freetibet.org
