Who is the Fundraising Team

GetUp’s Fundraising Team is a small, high performance team of dedicated fundraisers who create and manage meaningful and engaging experiences for the thousands of everyday people who chip in to power GetUp’s work. 

The Fundraising Team helps strengthen the GetUp movement of over one million members, finding the resources that drive our impact and giving people new and interesting avenues to make a difference on key issues.  

The Philanthropy Coordinator will be responsible for:

  • developing and administering a strong middle donor pipeline and conversion program;
  • developing and administering a process for prospect research, and conducting research via both internal and external sources;
  • monitoring and analysing fundraising data;
  • researching grant opportunities and supporting the application and acquittal process;
  • supporting the effective management of fundraising events; 
  • supporting the development of the bequest and telemarketing programs;
  • administering systems for high quality fundraising correspondence, donor care and engagement programs;
  • supporting the fundraising team to meet its regulatory and reporting obligations;
  • supervising other staff and/or volunteers as required.

You will be someone who:

  • is passionate about building relationships to grow and strengthen a movement of everyday people committed to creating change on a range of progressive issues;
  • is data-driven with experience applying data to donor pipelines; 
  • thrives on achieving fundraising goals through a combination of hard work, best practice and innovation;

  • is self motivated and capable of working autonomously while juggling deadlines on a range of varied tasks and projects in a fast paced environment; and
  • has at least 2 years professional experience. 

Bonus points for:

  • a keen interest and engagement in Australian politics; and
  • experience in advocacy.

If these criteria speak to you, you could be the perfect person for the job. Formal education, qualifications and extensive experience matter less to us than excellence, initiative and drive.
