Weizmann Canada is currently seeking an experienced and energetic Senior Development Officer (SDO) to join our growing organization. The incumbent will lead fundraising efforts in Western Canada.
Weizmann Canada has seen significant growth in major gift results over the past decade, consistently exceeding goals, and the Senior Development Officer role is integral to our continued success and future planning.
We have made investments in our national support services over the past three years, as well as adding front-line major gift fundraisers. As we move forward, we see potential for expansion of our fundraising efforts (and reaching our goal of a sustainable $20M annually).
This position will be based in Calgary.
Reporting to the Vice President, Major and Planned Gifts, the SDO will lead fundraising efforts in Western Canada. The SDO will manage a portfolio of individual and corporate major gift donors and potential donors. In addition, the Senior Development Officer will lead the Calgary and Vancouver Chapters of volunteers.
There is currently one direct report for this position in Calgary.
The candidate will be expected to be available for some evening meetings and events, as well as to travel to Edmonton, Winnipeg and Vancouver, as well as occasionally to Toronto and Montreal. In addition, there will likely be a trip to the Weizmann Institute in Science in Israel; thus, a valid passport is also required.
The Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, is one of the world’s top-ranking multidisciplinary research institutions. The Institute recently ranked third worldwide in the normalized 2019 Nature Index. The normalized index looks at the ratio of publications in the best scientific journals measured against total output. Weizmann may be small, but its contribution is mighty.
Noted for its wide-ranging exploration of the natural and exact sciences, the Institute is home to over 3,000 scientists, students, technicians and supporting staff. Institute research efforts include the search for new ways of fighting disease and hunger, examining leading questions in mathematics and computer science, probing the physics of matter and the universe, creating novel materials and developing new strategies for protecting the environment.
Individuals, corporations and foundations around the world invest generously in the Weizmann Institute’s research, graduate education and scientific outreach programs, including many Canadians who share our belief in the power of research to create a brighter tomorrow.
Weizmann Canada is a national community with a core group of dedicated donors and volunteers, and 15 professional staff who share a common vision with the Institute of advancing science for the benefit of humanity.
Our mission is twofold:
Weizmann Canada offers a cause that has a world-wide impact on humanity; a great team and a collaborative work environment. We also offer a robust and competitive compensation package.
Candidates are asked to please submit both a resume and letter of interest to email@example.com by September 27, 2019. Candidate submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
