We have created the GoodJobs Fund to provide support to individuals seeking a career in fundraising and to tackle equality, diversity and inclusion across the fundraising sector.
A minimum of 25% of our net profits every quarter will be put into the fund and used to deliver the GoodJobs Fund’s mission.
How the funds will be allocated
Half of the funds will be used to provide grants to support equality, diversity and inclusion in fundraising employment and training. They will be allocated on a strict geographical basis, based on the location of charity subscriptions to GoodJobs.
A further quarter of the funds will be used to support the development of training innovations, which address specific diversity and inclusion barriers.
The final quarter will be allocated at the discretion of GoodJobs to directly address diversity issues in fundraising employment. The fund will work with leaders in this area, to develop a range of employment and training initiatives, which create real job opportunities.
How the fund will be managed
The GoodJobs fund will be guided by an advisory board who will meet quarterly to oversee the allocation of funds. The advisory board will also be responsible for the award of the discretionary grants to shortlisted projects.
Every year, the impact of the GoodJobs fund will be subject to an independent review. The results of this review will be published as an impact report for distribution to all charity subscribers and job seekers.
We are keen to play our part. Recent research and campaigns have highlighted issues of diversity, inequality and inclusion within the sector. Please take a look at Institute of Fundraising's Change Collective report, Charity So White and Non Graduates Welcome.
