Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Fundraising is a critical component of our operations. Without sufficient funds we are not able to implement the many high-impact health and education initiatives which help support community development in rural Ghana where we are based. As such, we are currently looking for a Fundraising and Development Officer to assist our existing fundraiser activities which include grant proposal writing, developing donor partnerships and relations, and hosting fundraising events around the world. This opportunity would suit in-country or remote working.

DELIVERABLES

Success in this project will include identifying viable grant opportunities and then helping to submit compelling funding applications, finding relevant donors from the public and private sectors including companies or individuals who could partner with GHEI, and facilitating fundraising events to help support the implementation of GHEI's programs and community development goals.

NEEDED SKILLS:

  • Crowdfunding
