Fundraising and Grant Capture Support – Opportunities to join our team!

We are looking for volunteers who have experience in fundraising and / or grant capture to work with the Chief Executive Officer and members of the Board of Trustees to increase our charitable donations and review and capture other fundraising possibilities.

The Opportunity:

The OMC strives to increase access to mindfulness teaching and training globally across all populations and contexts and train the next generation of MBCT teachers.  Wider access is achieved via donations and income captured through grants and fundraising.

Reporting to and working with the CEO, the volunteer Fundraising and Grant Capture team will also work with dedicated members of the Board of Trustees to explore what fundraising and grant opportunities are available.  The Covid-19 pandemic will impact on the mental health of populations globally, the OMC is in a position to offer support which can be increased with additional revenue, grant capture and fundraising has never been more important.


  • Identify and review potential fundraising and grant capture opportunities
  • Support the CEO to prepare relevant paperwork to access funding

The OMC team is a small and busy team, working collaboratively with colleagues across the mindfulness field.  This is a new initiative to bring in a team of volunteers to work with the CEO to financially enable increased accessibility.  The OMC culture is professional, collaborative and service-oriented, and values transparency, flexibility, trustworthiness, energy and drive with a commitment to the wider vision to increase accessibility of mindfulness globally.
