The Veterans’ Foundation (VF), an armed forces’ charity, seeks a talented and enthusiastic Digital Fundraising Officer to work virtually with occasional travel throughout the UK.

What is the VF?

The VF is a charity passionate about supporting the vulnerable veterans and it has paid out in grants nearly £12M since inception in 2016. It operates as an independent grant-making foundation offering targeted support to a broad range of charities and charitable organisations that support those in need among serving armed forces’ personnel, veterans, operationally qualified seafarers, and their immediate families.

Funded projects include those that tackle homelessness, increase employment, overcome poverty and provide welfare and medical support. It also supports initiatives that increase confidence and social integration, as well as reducing dependence on alcohol and drugs.

The VF gives priority to well-run charities and organisations in need of funds that help the target beneficiaries.

To date the majority of funds raised by the VF have come from the highly successful Veterans’ Lottery (VL). However, individual and corporate donations are growing significantly and show potential for further development. We now need a member of staff to support the VF’s Fundraising Manager in building a broader fundraising base, with a focus on digital means of income generation.

More information about the VF can be found at: https://www.veteransfoundation.org.uk.
