H&F Giving is a charitable foundation set up to support areas of need in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF). We aim to connect the borough, so that every person and every generation can give what they can, or get what they need, to thrive in Hammersmith & Fulham.
Founded in 2018 by local trusts Hammersmith United Charities and Dr Edwards and Bishop King’s Fulham Charity, we are part of the wider London’s Giving place-based giving movement, which is designed to mobilise communities to give and support areas in need in their localities. Since we started, we have grown into a charity with an annual turnover of close to £0.5m; and become the go-to organisation in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, for funders and donors to understand and meet the needs of local people. Since 2018 we have distributed over £750,000 to local community groups within the borough. We have also been the conduit to providing essential kit such as computers and refurbished bikes to people that need it in the community.
Our growth has been fuelled by mobilising hundreds of (corporate, foundation and individual) donors to give more than £200,000 to help local people in need. It also would not be possible without the generous support of key stakeholders including our founding partners, the City Bridge Trust, and the local authority.
As part of our core activities, we run a range of targeted appeals and campaigns in the borough to help unlock support. For example, our appeal to support Ukrainians who fled the war to Hammersmith & Fulham and raising funds for a Christmas Day lunch for older and vulnerable people who would otherwise spend the day alone. We have also distributed more than £450,000 of Council restricted grants for heating, food and bills and other assistance, which has helped thousands of people in need throughout the cost-of-living crisis.
H&F Giving is now poised for accelerated growth and we have ambitious plans to significantly grow our work across the borough in the coming years. We are looking for an entrepreneurial and focused Fundraising & Partnerships Manager to lead on the development and delivery of H&F Giving’s fundraising strategy through this next, pivotal period of development.
Key activities in the short term will include working with our Executive Director to develop and deliver our fundraising strategy to steward existing corporate and major donors, identify new supporters, and to create new opportunities to generate income – as well as working to build awareness of H&F Giving amongst a wide range of stakeholders primarily within in Hammersmith & Fulham, engaging them to give and/or support H&F Giving in other ways.
This is a terrific opportunity to take a lead fundraising and partnerships role in a young organisation that is growing to its next stage of maturity and have a material impact in the community. We are seeking an individual who is passionate about community that is – or has the potential to be – an excellent fundraiser and relationship builder.
It is important to be in touch with what is happening in the borough and have a high profile amongst stakeholders as we as be present with the growing H&F Giving team, so the role is primarily office-based and includes regular face-to-face meetings. Some evening and weekend work may be involved, particularly for events. However, the working environment remains flexible with opportunities for some hybrid home/office working in line with organisational and team needs.
The role is seconded from Hammersmith United Charities as part of our founding partner’s support for H&F Giving. For details see our website: Home – H&F Giving (hfgiving.org.uk). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
