About the charity/role

The Caxton Youth Organisation is a Westminster youth club focused on helping young people with physical and mental disabilities. They offer a safe space for fun, friendship and socialising, as well as structured programmes in communications, cultural opportunities, health and personal care, and independence.

The CYO is looking for a Fundraising Manager who will bring in £220k per year for core and additional projects. They are already 65% of the way there for the 2021/22 target, so there is time for the new Fundraising Manager to settle in and embed in the organisation.

Although this role is the lead fundraiser and reports directly into the CEO, it is a supportive and inclusive environment, and for large complex bids there is a fundraising subcommittee on hand to hash out plans of action with. On occasion the charity also collaborates with other Westminster or other disability charities for joint bids, which the Fundraising Manager will help to coordinate.

All in all, most applications will be around £10k-£20k, although every six months or so there is usually a £100k+ bid that they aim to submit.
