The problem needing to be solved

We are searching for someone who can develop a calendar of grants that Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia (BOSA) are eligible to apply for over the next 12 months. We also require a list of potential major donors/partners to be collated with research completed. This will help us to secure funds over the next 12 months + to help us rescue, rehabilitate and release orangutans back into the wild and conserve their habitat.

Responsibilities of the online volunteering project

We are looking for someone independent who is able to:

- Effectively research and identify grants that BOSA are eligible to apply for and put together a calendar highlighting application due dates.

- Identify and list a minimum of 20 major donors/partners that could be approached by BOSA to establish a long-term relationship with them to help support our projects via major donations. The volunteer should be able to advise why each potential donor is selected. Eg: Have they shown interested in orangutan welfare previously? Do they have connection with Indonesia?

The benefit to you, the volunteer

This is an opportunity to play your part in saving the critically endangered orangutan in Borneo.

Use your skills to help us continue our work in helping orphaned orangutans get back to the wild where they belong and to conserve their habitat, allowing them to continue to live freely.

As a thank you, we will issue you or your organisation with a free adoption of one of our baby orangutans for a 1 year period. This will include an adoption certificate, biography and 2 progress reports on your chosen orangutan.

Tools required

Laptop to compile the calendar and list. Phone or email to communicate with the BOSA team.
