Metal For Good uses the positive values of rock, metal and other alternative subcultures to make a positive difference in communities. We are looking for volunteers with experience of community fundraising and individual giving.

What will you be doing?

We are looking for someone to help deliver our fundraising activity including our flagship community fundraising campaign later this year. With a focus on individual giving and community fundraising, the volunteer/s will work closely with the wider team to mobilise individuals to donate to Metal For Good or to fundraise on our behalf. You may also support the delivery of some of our corporate partner fundraising activities.

Key responsibilities:

The below is a list of responsibilities which we’d ideally love our volunteer/s to hold. We appreciate that this is an extensive list and would expect that the volunteer/s could work towards them over time.

● Identify and develop new fundraising initiatives and campaigns to mobilise individuals to support us

● Support the delivery of our flagship fundraising campaign in the latter part of 2023

● Develop relevant supporting materials and resources such as fundraising packs, campaign materials and supporting copy

● Manage our JustGiving page/online donation platforms

● Work closely with Metal For Good’s founders and the social media volunteer/s to support the marketing of our fundraising activity

● Develop and deliver an engagement/thanking plan for supporters

What are we looking for?

About you:

● You have experience of individual giving/community fundraising, either through your work or previous volunteering

● You have an understanding of corporate fundraising

● You are familiar with JustGiving and other online donation platforms

● You can write clearly and concisely

● You have a passion for rock and metal music and an understanding of what makes the community tick

● Basic design skills and experience of PowerPoint or Canva

● You’re reliable and able to work both independently and collaboratively

● Have access to a laptop/PC

What difference will you make?

Metal For Good is at an exciting stage as a charity. We’ve secured incredible partners including Laney Amps, 2000 Trees Festival, and Primordial Radio. We’re beginning to work with rock and metal legends such as Rob Halford, and artists across the spectrum of rock and metal.

Crucially, we’re launching our pilot grant funding round in summer 2023 capitalising on momentum and starting to support projects using music to help young people to thrive, improve mental health, and address inequalities.

We are a small team of volunteers who are committed to making a difference through the power of the rock and metal community. We need help from knowledgeable and passionate volunteer/s to help deliver our planned fundraising activity. You will be working closely with the Metal For Good founders and will be a hugely valuable part of the team.
