Is this you?

Are you a brand builder with a philanthropic mindset who has experience building and leading high-performance teams? Would your peers refer to you as a consensus-builder, strategic thinker with a bias to action and implementation? You have a passion for the outdoors, a sense of humour, are an eternal optimist and most of all, you love to be a part of a positive, up beat, can-do work environment with capable dedicated individuals.

You consider yourself to be flexible…you don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and diving into the details, in fact you’d never pass off a task for someone to complete that you wouldn’t do yourself.

You have managed and mentored people and you are prepared to fundraise across the spectrum of revenue streams (major gifts, foundations, corporate partnerships, community engagement, and monthly giving). You enjoy accountability and having a financial team target.  

You have a proven track record in your ability to develop meaningful relationships and to successfully integrate donor interests with organizational priorities. You are known as a consummate professional, able to tactfully manage complex situations and to motivate and inspire colleagues and volunteers. You are resilient and comfortable with ambiguity.
