People in your neighbourhood need your help.
The Amelia Foundation is seeking an individual who will help design strategic plans for fundraising events, bring lots of new ideas to the table and engage with the other members in the organization to bring plans to fruition. If you’re looking for an opportunity to showcase and work on your fundraising planning skills, contact us! Who we are: The Amelia Foundation was created to provide healthcare to the companion animals of people experiencing homelessness. It is estimated that a quarter of people experiencing homelessness have a companion animal, most commonly dogs. Studies that have looked at this relationship have determined that having a companion animal provides friendship and responsibility, and significantly contributes to emotional wellbeing. Since people experiencing homelessness treasure their companion animals, they tend to prioritize them, which can sometimes come at a cost. Most shelters do not allow non-human animals, so those experiencing homelessness alongside their companion animals spend more time outside living on the streets. As the companion animals and their humans spend so much time together, the animal becomes very attached. This makes it difficult to go to job interviews, go grocery shopping, visit rental apartments, etc. The Amelia Foundation believes that healthcare is best when it is holistic; we want to provide not only medical care to companion animals of those experiencing homelessness, but also act as a bridge between the people experiencing homelessness and their companion animals and all of the resources that have become barriers for them. Who we are looking for: We need more visionaries who care deeply about the wellbeing of companion animals and have skillsets that would be beneficial to our board. We value excellent communication skills, networking abilities, fearlessness and collaboration. We also use Google suite and Slack, thus experience in those platforms is preferred. Experience caring for animals is an asset. We would also prefer experience with non-profit organizations.
We are a fast paced, high-energy non-profit with big dreams and big plans to achieve them. We believe that surrounding yourself with productive people will increase your own productivity, so if you’re looking to add that extra motivation in your life, join us!
