Volunteer Grants & Trusts Fundraiser

New Leaf Animal Society focuses on the Human-Animal Bond and Interaction when rehoming its animals. We are a micro-organisation who primarily focus on improving cat ownership and the successful rehoming of unwanted/relinquished cats. Over time we hope to expand to other species such as dogs and small pets.

To achieve this, we rely on a strong supporter platform and regular income. By fundraising for New Leaf Animal Society, you will be the face of the work we do and engage with the supporters who make our work possible. You will have to have a flare for fundraising and able to put your passion into words.

As a grants and trusts volunteer, you have one of the most important roles with New Leaf Animal Society and will be working as a team with one of our trustees who has years of experience as an Institute of Fundraising trainer.


This is a rare opportunity to learn and develop your skills whilst contributing to changing both humans and animals’ lives.


Line Management: You will report to the Director and work alongside the board and other volunteers where relevant.

Location: The role is flexible, remote volunteering with an option to have in person meetings.

Time commitment: 3+ hours weekly
