ICS is seeking an energetic, organized and committed individual to fill the role of Senior Development Officer on a full-time, short-term contract. The focus of the role will be to bring rigour and discipline to a major gift program, focussing on an established Top 30-50 list.
Reporting to the President, the Senior Development Officer will be responsible for implementing a Revenue Generation Plan that has been prepared by ICS with the assistance of a leading fundraising consulting firm. The primary focus will be on the identification, cultivation and solicitation of major gift ($5,000 +) prospects and past donors. The successful candidate will work closely with key internal and external stakeholders to realize success. The Senior Development Officer is expected to provide fundraising leadership while demonstrating core values of integrity, sound judgment and fiscal responsibility.
This is a one-year contract with the possibility of extension and promotion. The Insitute for Christian Studies is expecting that during the successful candidate’s term, he or she will demonstrate aggressive cultivation and solicitation activity. The results of this activity (gauged by the number of fundraising ‘moves’ executed) will determine the extension of the contract.
Travel within Canada and to the United States will be required.
Cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of a portfolio of top 30-50 potential major gift donors in both Canada and the United States, including planned giving strategies.
