Edinburgh and Lothian Trust Fund (ELTF) is looking for a trustee with fundraising skills and experience to join our Board.
ELTF is a grant making charity whose core aim is the relief of poverty. We provide small grants to individuals in need and grants to small charities throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians. We also provide grants to individuals through the Edinburgh Fire Fund. See www.eltf.org.uk for further information.
ELTF is experiencing unprecedented demand and is therefore seeking to increase its income and the number of families it can assist. It seeks an experienced fundraiser who would be willing to share their expertise and offer advice on the development of a fundraising strategy. The role of Trustee is voluntary and unpaid, but we hope that working with ELTF will be a rewarding experience, helping to support vulnerable people in need.
The Trust has an investment portfolio of over £7m. Income of around £240k annually is used to fund grant giving and meet costs.
The Trustees meet four times a year to approve grant applications and to discuss and decide on policy and governance issues and provide oversight of the management of the investment portfolio.
