Trusts and Foundations Officer

Chance to Shine is a national children’s charity. We change young people’s lives through cricket giving them the opportunity to play, learn and develop through the sport. We keep them physically active, teach them vital skills like teamwork, communication and leadership. And above all, they have fun.
Since 2005 our Chance to Shine Schools programme has helped reverse the decline of cricket in state schools with millions of boys and girls in over 13,000 state schools playing and learning through cricket. Chance to Shine Street supports young people in under-served communities to access and benefit from cricket in a free, inclusive, fun and fast-paced tape ball environment.

The Fundraising Team is tasked with helping Chance to Shine achieve its ambition. Securing new funding partnerships and the stewardship of existing donors across a range of funding streams: Corporate, Events, Trusts and Foundations, Individual giving, and statutory funding to support the delivery of Chance to Shine programmes.

We are looking for an individual with experience of fundraising, ideally with Trusts and Foundations, with a motivation to drive real change for children and young people. The person in this role will have excellent writing and research skills and enjoy relationship building. The role does not require an understanding of cricket but does require an enthusiasm towards changing children and young people’s lives.

This is an exciting time for growth within this highly motivated team and this role will play an integral part in our strategy building on our existing pipeline; working collaboratively to make a big impact.
