Fundraising Coordinator, Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF)

LAFF sees fundraising as a way to create long term relationships with donors; as the fundraising coordinator, you will play a vital part in this, working with the communications team to consider the full donor-cycle, from first approach to long term updates about LAFFโ€™s work and our beneficiaries.

You will focus on increasing funds from Trusts and Foundations, companies, schools and universities in order to financially support LAFFโ€™s programs. The fundraising strategy consists of identifying fundraising opportunities; applying to grants, writing proposals to trusts, foundations and businesses; and engaging with different audiences e.g. schools and universities.

Your independent research skills and innovation will find new opportunities to build LAFFโ€™s corporate partner network and your understanding of LAFFโ€™s individual donor audience will develop our strategy for increasing regular monthly donors.

Great part of your success in this position will rely on your understanding of the socio-economic problems in Peru that affect LAFFโ€™s beneficiaries and your ability to effectively communicate the importance of LAFFโ€™s work and contextualize progress.

To Note: This position is unpaid. Successful applicants will be contacted to arrange an online interview.
