Fundraising Team Members

We are looking for keen and dedicated volunteers to help grow the fundraising
program. With a knowledge or interest in fundraising, we’re looking for
committed volunteers who share our mission to help develop a fulsome
fundraising program. The demand to rescue and save Goldens from across the
globe continues to grow and we’re striving to strengthen our program to help as
many as we can. Led by the volunteer Director of Fundraising, we’re looking for
help in the following areas:

  •  identifying and soliciting new individual and corporate partners
    stewarding existing donors to encourage a deeper, more lucrative
    relationship
  • creating fundraising policies, programs, and procedures to maximize
    donations through various development streams
  • training board members or volunteers to solicit and secure donations

Time commitment: 10-20 hours per month
