Events & Community Fundraising Coordinator

The Reach Foundation
  • This is the year to step into an exciting role within the Reach Foundation

Being young is not without its struggles. Today’s world is pretty complex and young people can experience a bunch of challenges that adults might not be able to relate to. One of the biggest hurdles is just having the confidence and support to be who they want to be.

There are currently over 4 million young people living in Australia, and Reach has around 250 of them working for us; designing and delivering workshops in schools and the community. Our workshops are 100% youth-led, from design through to delivery, and the community we create out of these workshops is one that allows for deeper connection, a sense of belonging, and the dispelling of judgements. A preventative, instead of having to focus on symptoms in adult life.

Reporting to the Head of Fundraising, the Events & Community Fundraising Coordinator is an integral part of the Fundraising team, responsible for securing significant funds and growing revenue via community fundraising and events (both in-house and third party). This position is critical in ensuring the future viability and growth of Reach by broadening and strengthening our fundraising base through the development of strong and lasting relationships with our event attendees and community fundraisers.

This role develops, delivers and evaluates effective strategies for Reach’s fundraising events to achieve revenue targets in NSW and VIC. The community fundraising area includes all individual and group fundraisers; peer-to-peer fundraising, physical challenge events, nominated events and volunteer fundraising committees.
