Free UK Genealogy CIO is the umbrella charity for volunteer-led transcription projects FreeBMD, FreeREG and FreeCEN. In fact, the charity sprang from the FreeBMD project, growing in scope and ambition to what it is today. It is our mission to provide free, online access to family history records. We support thousands of dedicated volunteers to create high-quality transcriptions of public records from governmental sources, parish churches, and other trusted institutions. Openness is one of our core principles, and we believe that Open Data and Open Source are key to making and keeping public records accessible to all.
Things that we need help with include (but are not limited to):
Building relationships with our existing donor-base using KindLink CRM, for which we have recently set up an account;
Producing documentation to support Transparency, building the case for support, and communicating what donations have achieved;
Developing our Communications plan for raising donations, including developing a bank of messages and ‘stories’ for communications channels (e.g. bi-monthly newsletter, social media):
Exploring how we can get the best from Facebook Charitable Giving;
Contributing to the ongoing development of our fundraising strategy, and associated work plans
Some previous communications and/or fundraising experience/training (or willingness to gain such) is desirable. Some experience of design for communication would be a bonus.
