Fundraising administration volunteer


Fundraising administration volunteer

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Cats are at the centre of everything we do and our objectives are: homing, neutering and educating people about cats and their care.

We help thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers, staff and supporters.

A bit about this role

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to the donations we receive from generous members of the public. Our fundraising administration volunteers help our feline friends by promoting the use of Gift Aid; making sure we receive the additional funds linked to donations made by taxpayers who have chosen to help us in this way. Every extra penny raised goes directly to helping cats across the UK, as little as 18p can make a difference, as this is enough to feed a cat in our care for a day!

What can you expect to be doing?

  • Recording and processing Gift Aid donations
  • Completing Gift Aid paperwork
  • Providing regular reports on funds raised through Gift Aid
  • Liaising with other volunteers and staff to promote Gift Aid donations
  • Free text as bullet points

What are the benefits to you and the cats?

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by helping raise the vital funds needed to help cats in your local area. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated team of volunteers.

We’re looking for someone with

  • Good IT skills
  • Organisational skills and attention to detail
  • Willingness to be part of a team
  • The ability to use own initiative
  • An understanding of Gift Aid (would be an advantage)

Time expectation

Our fundraising administration volunteers usually spend 1 to 2 hours per week in this role, which is flexible and can be shared by more than one volunteer if needed.

Additional information

At Cats Protection we believe our volunteers should be happy and confident in their roles. To make sure this is the case, we provide support and guidance both remotely from our National Cat Centre and face to face through our regional and local volunteer groups and teams. We also offer varied online and face to face training and have wide-ranging policies covering all aspects of volunteering. We hope the support we provide will ensure our volunteers have a great experience with Cats Protection.
