Part Time Corporate Fundraiser

Based in Greater Manchester

Due to the generosity of Duchenne Now’s business sponsorship we are advertising for a part-time corporate and grant fundraiser based in Greater Manchester to work alongside Esther to help us raise much needed research funding, this person will also help out at family events when required.

This position comes at absolutely no cost to members or our supporters, the wage and bonus scheme will be paid for by our business partner, meaning 100% of all donations, corporate or not will still go towards treating ALL with Duchenne. The Trustees would also like to emphasise any bonus scheme will be linked to corporate funds and grants only, our corporate friends can also be assured that their donations will not be used to fund anything other than research into Duchenne.

Duchenne Now does not believe in setting targets for families and supporters who work tirelessly on behalf of people living with Duchenne, especially in these very difficult times, we appreciate every single donation large or small. As trustees we understand parents don’t appreciate being targeted by people with annual targets to meet.

The successful applicant MUST have experience and a proven track record in corporate fundraising and experience in grant applications would be an advantage.

Please Note: some businesses will not fund research directly but will support charities, running costs and the infrastructure to help them develop. This is the case with one of our generous Duchenne Now business sponsors. The Trustees would like to thank our sponsor for their wonderful support once again.
