Opportunity Ambassadors are people from across Australia who use their skills and influence to help tell the Opportunity story. They advocate and fundraise for families in need in a variety of different ways.
The one thing they all have in common is that they are making a huge difference – helping grow Opportunity’s influence and fundraising by accessing areas and communities that we couldn’t reach without them. They want to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and have a passion to see justice done.
Ambassadors are crucial to the work of Opportunity – and we’d love you to join us!
AMBASSADORS HELP BY...
Introducing us to people in their networks, organising catch ups with friends, colleagues or associates who they believe would also be interested in supporting our programs.
Hosting fundraising events – anything from trivia nights and gala dinners to touch football competitions or pancake breakfasts in the office.
Taking on individual tasks or challenges – running fun runs or embarking on treks, or renting out spare rooms in their house via AirBnB so they can donate the proceeds.
Engaging the staff and customers of their business by donating percentages of sales or offering optional donations on top of transactions.
BEING AN AMBASSADOR IS REWARDING
There are a number of benefits to becoming an Opportunity Ambassador, which include:
1. Access to a network of like-minded Ambassadors, Board and well-recognised Council members and increased insight into Opportunity’s programs.
2. Recognition in a formalised role with a well-respected global non-profit development organisation.
3. The ability to have a significant social impact in the lives of families and communities in need, while encouraging others to do the same.
The great thing is, you’re able to tailor your Ambassadorship to suit your skills, availability and passions. So if you’re concerned about a time commitment, there’s no need! We can work with you in an Ambassador role that suits you and your lifestyle.
