DASH is looking for a fantastic Freelance Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser to work with our small team to help shape our case for funding, write at least three major applications for our priority projects, and help us build the tools to support our future fundraising practices.

This project is funded through Arts Council England’s Culture Recovery Fund – Continuity Support, it is a requirement to provide evaluation and evidence for reporting purposes for this grant. The deadline for completion of the work is 31 March 2022.

We are looking for a fundraiser with a track record in securing major funding, with a specialism in arts and culture sector funders.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • Significant senior fundraising experience, with a track-record of successfully soliciting five to six figure grants from a range of funding sources.
