About the position
This is a pivotal role with the responsibility for implementing and managing the charity’s first major fundraising Appeal of £3million; whilst also delivering sustainable income from Corporate Partnerships, Major Donors and Trusts and Foundations to support the existing commitments of the charity.
It is an exciting time in childhood cancer research with many discoveries and breakthroughs providing enormous optimism for how we treat cancer. In our case, we are particularly excited about the role Precision Medicine can play in how we treat children’s cancers. To achieve our ambitions, we will be launching a fundraising campaign to raise £3million over three years whilst maintaining our income to support our existing commitments.
The additional income required will be driven largely by increased targeted fundraising from high net worth individuals, companies and trusts. With the new fundraising regulator in place, coupled with tighter interpretation and enforcement of current data protection laws and planned future changes, CwC UK must allocate additional resources to ensure all existing and new activity is compliant with the regulatory authorities.
