Fundraising Group Treasurer (Stratford-upon-Avon)


Oxfam Fundraising Groups are teams of likeminded people who are passionate about changing the world.

With over 60 fundraising groups across the UK, we're looking to set up our next group in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Once up and running, the Stratford-upon-Avon Fundraising Group will organise fun, friendly fundraising events. These can be anything and everything - our fundraising groups organise all kinds of events, ranging from sponsored walks to golf days and curry nights to gala dinners!

As Treasurer for the group, you'll look after the money for your team. You'll record the money raised and transfer the money over to Oxfam, keeping the group up to date with how much you've raised.

Last year, Stratford-Upon-Avon's nearest neighbouring group, the Birmingham Fundraising Group, raised over £4600 for Oxfam's work - that's enough to train 148 midwives in Ghana, or provide water for 1500 families in an emergency. By working together locally, you'll make a difference globally - and have a great time along the way.

Frequency: Flexible, 2 - 4 hours a week, times and days to suit you!


Key responsibilities:

  • You'll have a vital role in raising funds to support the work of Oxfam in alleviating poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Set up a group bank account and keep a record of all group income and expenditure, transferring funds over to Oxfam.
  • Keep a record of how much was raised from each event, so you can see what events are most successful.
  • Be the lucky person to inform the group each month just how much you've raised and what impact this will have on Oxfam's work.
  • Inspire others with your passion for Oxfam, keeping your group at the heart of the community.
  • Be an active member of the Stratford-upon-Avon Fundraising Group, attending monthly meetings, helping to organise events and supporting your fellow volunteers.

Skills and competencies:

  • Drive and determination to make your fundraising a great success.
  • A basic understanding of keeping a record of money - you'll be given a treasurer guide and lots of support.
  • Honest and trustworthy.
  • Ability to work well as part of a team.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • This is your chance to contribute to Oxfam's goals of overcoming poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Develop and enhance your money management and organisational skills.
  • Comprehensive induction into Oxfam's work and training with ongoing support from Jenna, your local community fundraiser.
  • Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed in line with Oxfam's expense policy.
