The Opportunity
If you are an accomplished major gift fundraiser who believes the following things, we’d love to hear from you:
• Health is a human right. Delivering on that right for people who have been systematically excluded from it is social justice work at its finest. This work can’t happen without resources…and that’s where you come in
• Fostering strong and lasting relationships with donors based on trust and transparency is at the heart of your work
• There is a special kind of excitement that comes from making people feel as good about
their philanthropy as you feel about the organization you’re representing
• If you’re asked to prioritize either interpersonal skills or organizational and time
management skills as more important for this position, the only right answer is “both”
• An underdeveloped portfolio is an outsized opportunity
• Fundraising is a team sport

You will be responsible primarily for bringing new donors into PIH Canada through networking, prospect research and cultivation strategies, and will manage a small portfolio of existing $10,000+ donors with a mandate to deepen engagement and grow revenue.

• Is keenly engaged in world issues; develops and sustains relationships with colleagues, donors and partners in diverse settings from a position of humility, generosity, and solidarity
• Is an outstanding communicator with the ability to effectively and
passionately inspire a wide variety of audiences both orally and in writing
• Is detail and systems-oriented, with experience using Salesforce or other CRM software
• Has proven ability to use metrics to drive development decisions and achieve strategic objectives
• Understands development best practices and has the ability to apply them in innovative ways to identify, qualify, cultivate, solicit and steward major gift donors
