JOB DESCRIPTION

The Fundraising Assistant will support the Communication & Fundraising department. Currently, TATU Project is developing new programs and for these, we will need to work on consolidating frameworks and proposals as well as strategize our best options for funding. The Fundraising Coordinator would be involved in those discussions, and support the different strategies at hand. Once funding has been obtained and for other existing programs, the fundraising coordinator will also support the donor/partners strategy in order to foster our relationships and to harmonize and improve the reporting process/format. We want our partners to feel involved in the projects and we want to be 100% transparent in the process. It would also be interesting to review our current process in tracking
donations and sponsors and sharing our gratefulness. We would like to improve how to keep them involved, how to express our gratefulness in a way that is in line with our work, values and fairness to all supporters of TATU Project.
