Are you an experienced trusts and grants fundraiser looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of neurodivergent people?

Our newly created Trusts and Grants Fundraiser position may be the perfect opportunity for you. Trusts and Grants will provide an important income stream for the Donaldson Trust to enable the delivery of our strategy, increasing our reach and impact while remaining financially sustainable.

As the National Body for Neurodiversity, the Donaldson Trust is a catalyst for change. We believe there is a genuine opportunity to change society for better. We aim to be at the forefront of driving this change, and make a difference with, and for, neurodivergent people.

We're a team filled with caring and talented individuals who work together to create positive change, and you'll be part of a team dedicated to giving neurodivergent people a voice and contributing to our vision of a society in which neurodivergent people are understood, accepted, treated fairly and valued.

The Trusts and Grants Fundraiser will develop and manage the annual fundraising plan, identify new income streams, manage day to day relationships with trusts and grant funders and maintain a pipeline of funding applications aligned with the charity’s vision, values and strategic goals.

You will have proven track record of raising funds from written applications, strong writing, project management and organisational skills. With strong interpersonal skills, you will have confidence in building relationships and collaborating effectively with a diverse range of stakeholders.

This is a full time position, but we’re happy to discuss flexible working.
