IAPWA was founded in 2009 to provide protection and improve the welfare of animals in need. Today we are an international animal welfare charity, driven to provide a lifeline for animals around the world. Through our projects and partnerships, we’re committed to creating a long-term change for a better future for animals.
Our work is vast and includes providing veterinary teams to local sanctuaries, educating children about the importance of animal welfare, working with authorities to develop humane neutering programmes and finding forever homes through our Adoption Programme.
What does the opportunity involve doing?
Role Type: Volunteer
Hours: Flexible | Ongoing
Reports to/works with: County Manager
Community Leader / Fundraiser is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys meeting new people and is looking to give back to their community as well as helping animals who are suffering around the world. We’re looking for someone who enjoys bringing people together and coming up with creative ways to fundraise and help spread IAPWA’s message.
What you’ll be doing:
Creating: Getting other members in your community (including friends and family) involved in fundraising events/activities. Creating and organising fun ways to raise money for IAPWA to help the animals in our care.
Communicating: Attending monthly Zoom calls with your dedicated County Manager. Participating in your team's Facebook and WhatsApp groups. Organising Zoom or in person meetings with your teams. Sharing IAPWA’s appeals, petitions and newsletters.
Reporting: Monthly completion of a short report form which will include how much you and your teams have raised. Paying in funds after each fundraiser.
This is an ongoing, flexible role which can be tailored to fit in with your time and availability. However, you will be working to small monthly fundraising targets with your team.
What induction, training and support is offered?
IAPWA’s goal is to create a dedicated and passionate community coming together to help us change the lives of the animals who need us. You will have continuous support and monthly 1-1 Zoom calls with your County Manager who will provide you with everything you need to get started. There will also be the chance to join induction Zoom calls and meet/speak to IAPWA’s Founder and CEO. You will also be a part of a Facebook group where you can share what you are working on and get some ideas/inspiration and help.
