Trust Fundraising Assistant

Posted Date
London - Head Office
Closing date

If you would enjoy creative and persuasive writing, explaining complex projects and services in a way that is compelling, and desktop research, then you might enjoy working as a trust fundraiser.

Trusts and foundations make up a significant proportion of Muscular Dystrophy UK’s funding, and this internship represents an opportunity to get real experience in trust fundraising, make a tangible difference to our charity, and learn all the skills you need to secure a trust fundraising role.

This role will give the opportunity to learn the basics of trust fundraising, including how to find funders, how to apply to them, and how to manage existing funding relationships.

It will focus primarily on prospect research but include opportunities to write proposals and applications outside of that, as part of a successful and dynamic grant writing team.
