The Charity seeks a trustee to join the board to assist with fundraising ventures.
Pet Refuge Project has decided to expand the board of trustees. We need someone to join the board who has fundraising experience and who can bring a wealth of contacts to us to assist in raising much needed funds for the charity at a time when support of animal welfare charities is tentative. The current board has identified this gap in its composition. Trustees are voted onto the board as non-remunerated members for a period of 3 years, after which time the trustee can reapply for a further period on the board of up to three years, such renewal to be ongoing every three years. We would welcome someone who sees themselves as being involved with the charity for the long term.
Our key area for expansion of the board is with funding, so we would like to recruit a new board member that has at least three years experience of funding applications and helping charities with their funding sources. You do not necessarily have to have been a trustee, as long as you have extensive fundraising and grant application experience. However, having trustee experience would be a distinct advantage.
The Pet Refuge Project facilitates the removal, reception and care of the animals of those affected by domestic abuse. Without this sort of help, those people may not ever leave their abuser, in favour of caring for their animals. We believe that everyone experiencing domestic abuse should be free to leave and find a new life, and that no one should be left behind. We include animals in that. By helping us source funding for our key projects, and to help us take the charity in new directions as a key member of the board, you will have a key impact on the charity and the lives of many survivors and their pets.
Please contact us and tell us why you would like to be involved with our charity particularly and why animal welfare is important to you. Please also include your CV.
