Vacancy: Trustee (Fundraising Strategy)
The Teapot Trust is looking for a new trustee, someone to be the strategic voice of fundraising on the Board. Our CEO is an experienced and inspiring fundraiser herself; what we need is a trustee to enhance the Board, contributing to a development strategy which secures the revenue we need to grow as a charity. If you have significant strategic fundraising experience and, preferably, Board experience too, we would love to hear from you. This is a voluntary role and is not about operational support or a significant time commitment. The Board meets bi-monthly and we would also ask you to join our Fundraising Subcommittee. All trustees are invited to help “open doors” by using their valuable contacts and we would hope you would do the same. Most importantly, all trustees believe in improving the mental health of young people through art therapy and creative interventions.
How to apply:
Application Notes: Visit www.teapot-trust.org where you will find our Annual Review and Case for Support. Contact our Chair, Liz Kilpatrick, if you are interested, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile: 07585 633254.
Meetings will be arranged for those interested. The Board comprises 7 trustees at present, including our Founder. We take our roles of charity governance, financial oversight and strategic direction seriously and our trustees bring a range of strengths to our collective decision-making. As a lean, ambitious and dynamic charity, there are always interesting ideas and issues to scrutinise. The Board meets every two months and trustees are usually involved in a subcommittee. Trustees, our team of 5 staff and 16 art therapists are all committed to supporting and enriching the lives of as many children as possible. Fundraising is obviously our critical activity and we hope to find a trustee who can contribute to shaping our future.
