Fundraising Director

At least 6 months
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:
The Amelia Foundation is seeking an individual who will help design strategic plans for fundraising events, bring creative and fresh ideas to the table and engage with the other members in the organization to bring plans to fruition. Ideally, this individual will have experiencing running fundraising campaigns and projects within Canada and is well connected to potential collaborators. However, we are also willing to take on a self-motivated individual who is excited about our mission and wants to grow alongside our organization! 

We are still in the developmental process of our organization and are looking for an individual with expertise in fundraising planning to help us grow as an organization. We have many exciting projects and collaborations that are being developed and we are looking for a supportive member who is willing to commit to working with us long-term and understands the importance of this commitment.

How to apply:
Send your resumé to general@theameliafoundation.org and CC president@theameliafoundation.org. In the heading, please input: TAF Fundraising Director Application. If you have a companion animal (or more than one!), we would love a picture and a description of your relationship with them! If you don’t have a companion animal, send us a picture of a non-human animal that brings you joy! We would prefer a cover letter as well, but it is not mandatory.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
We are a fun and fast-paced non-profit with big dreams and big plans to achieve them. We believe that surrounding yourself with positive and productive people will increase your own productivity and joy in life, so if you’re looking to add that extra spice and motivation, join us!
