The Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) leads a national movement of individuals, organizations and communities working together to end homelessness in Canada. The CAEH works toward a Canada without homelessness. We do it by helping communities and governments across the country apply proven approaches to transform programs, policies, and systems toward the goal of ending homelessness.
CAEH strives for inclusion and diversity by attracting extraordinary people from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences. Candidates with lived experience of homelessness and/or who self-identify as being from a marginalized community, including Indigenous peoples, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQQIA persons, are encouraged to apply and will be prioritized. We ask that these candidates indicate their relevant identities in their cover letters.
What is the Opportunity?
CAEH is building its philanthropic capacity within the Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal areas and is currently in the quiet phase of a $12.5 million capacity campaign to accelerate an end to homelessness in Canada. We are looking for an experienced fund development professional who knows how to build strong and lasting major donor, foundation, and corporate relationships to join our small but mighty team as a Philanthropy Specialist.
The Philanthropy Specialist will support building a pipeline of major donors, establish and foster relationships with granting foundations, and help secure sponsorships for the Alliance’s National Conference on Ending Homelessness. This position will support the implementation of the $12.5 million Demand More Capacity Campaign and will report directly to the Philanthropy and Campaign Lead.
