    About us

    We are an entrepreneurial NGO that was founded in 2015 on Lesvos in Greece. At the core of all our missions stands our Camp to CampUs approach. Following that approach, we build a community, together with (camp) residents. Not for them, but with them. With this approach, we stimulate the social participation of newcomers and sustainably facilitate social & local integration within a community.

    More about your team

    Within this role, you will be part of the Amsterdam Office. The fundraising community contains next to you two enthusiast fundraising colleagues.

    • Proposals. Independently write marketing-driven grant or program proposals, project plans, applications and reports.
    • Activation. Develop, activate and manage smart fundraising concepts, campaigns, events or partner programs. Including setting up an inspiring event and campaigning calendar, attracting potential funders and connecting partners sustainably.
    • Teaming up and Coaching. You team up with the other members of the Amsterdam office to ensure that the fundraising and partnership efforts are aligned with the overall strategy. You will coach and support the work and career of the other fundraising professionals.
    • Targets. You will set and achieve income targets together with your team and our marketing colleagues.
