In particular we are looking for a trustee that has income generation experience in the areas of corporate partnerships, fundraising and/or sales to fund delivery of our growth plans and help ensure our ongoing financial sustainability.

The trustee will be responsible for developing the income generation strategy, annual income generation plan, setting and managing the income generation budget and quarterly reporting of progress against annual plans. 

What are we looking for?

  • Interested in the ATD Foundation charitable work

What difference will you make?

Generating more funds through fundraising will enable the ATD Foundation to reach a greater number of young people in Zambia who desperately need help. By welcoming aboard someone with income generation experience, we hope to create a more long term strategy that will fund delivery of our growth plans and help ensure our ongoing financial sustainability.    

What's in it for the volunteer?

This is a unique opportunity for an individual to transform a small newly registered charity into one that achieves substantial growth over the next few years. In a short period of time, we have already made a huge positive impact in the communities we have worked with in Zambia. By being part of a small dedicated team of volunteers, you can really add value to our projects and have the opportunity to be involved in the management of the ATD Foundation.
