Volunteer Fundraiser (Pin badges)

Job Summary

Why we want you

When you join our team of over 1,500 volunteers, who are crucial to the running of our pin badge scheme, we will support you to place 1 to 5 boxes in your chosen area. To ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the donations from your boxes will need banking every 4-6 weeks, and the pin badges will need topping up. You will then report the income on our user friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. This can all be done at a time that suits you. Simple!

Scotland is an amazing place for wildlife. The variety of species and habitats is outstanding – but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. 10% of all UK species are now under threat. We’re determined to stop this happening, but we urgently need your help. Our community fundraising volunteers are the local face of the RSPB. Last year, in Scotland, the team raised an incredible £177,000 in donations from our pin badge and collection boxes, and almost £1 million nationally. Could you help us raise even more?

We ask for a suggested donation of £1 per badge and, on average, each box raises £150 per year for the RSPB. Our current range has over 100 high quality and attractive badge designs, depicting UK wildlife. The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again. We also play a leading role in a worldwide partnership of nature conservation charities.
