Part time Fundraiser and Bid-writer for the Lightwave community
The purpose of this role is to facilitate the Lightwave Community and especially its Red Lodge Hub, to achieve sustainability for current and future posts and activities. The Lightwave Community’s work has so far been funded by an initial Central Church grant which tapers to a finish in 2025. Therefore, funding is needed for sustainability of existing projects, and developing new ones. This is to be achieved through broadening the Community’s sources of income to include more direct giving and more grant-funding.
We are looking for someone who is excited by the work of the Lightwave Community. You will have experience and proven success in fundraising, either in a secular or Christian context, including finding potential sources and income and writing successful bids. The current forecast funding need from 2024/5 onwards is c. £300k per year from grants and from regular giving.
For an informal conversation please contact the Revd Diane Grano.
