Contract Type
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home believes that every dog and cat should live in a home where they are treated with love, care and respect. At Battersea we re-home dogs and cats, reunite them with their owners and we work in the community to educate people about responsible ownership. We aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need, and we turn helplessness into hope for over 7,000 dogs and cats every year.

As part of a transformational growth strategy the Home has invested heavily in a new fundraising team and activities, increasing income more than tenfold since 2010 and substantially reducing an over reliance on legacy income. Our fundraising programme has grown rapidly across all areas; most notably by developing a significant individual donor base, establishing a major giving programme, launching new commercial activities and developing our events and community fundraising activity. Yet the opportunity to increase our impact for animals through growing a significant and sustainable income base remains considerable and our fundraising team are set to achieve ambitious year-on-year growth in order transform the lives of the animals in our care.

The Philanthropy & Partnerships Team looks after three different types of supporters to the home, Individuals, Trusts and Corporate. As a team, our aim is to continually find new supporters who can make a significant difference to the home by giving large financial gifts, while also looking after those who have already given.

The Philanthropy Team works with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home's individual major donors. This area of fundraising has lots of opportunity for growth, as we work in a charity with great brand awareness and a strong affinity to so many people.
