Job Description

Do you want to make a difference?

Do you see yourself as part of an organization that imbues the humanitarian values of respect, dignity, inclusiveness; an organization with integrity, effectiveness, transparency and adaptability?

Do you see yourself as part of a professional philanthropic team where your role in raising funds alleviates suffering, improves health and wellness and makes a difference in people’s lives? Then join us.

Join the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Canadian Red Cross Society, as part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, is dedicated to helping the most vulnerable in Canada and throughout the world.  With over 150 years of history and 191 national Societies, the Red Cross is one of the most recognized brands in the world.

Due to the continued growth of our planned giving program, we are currently seeking a highly motivated, organised and enthusiastic individual to join our growing Planned Giving team as Manager, Planned Gifts, based in Toronto.  You will directly contribute to the Canadian Red Cross’ fund raising strategy by managing a portfolio of current and prospective supporters, and securing planned gift commitments.  This position is vital to achieving our ambitious growth objectives to ensure the future of our humanitarian work. 

Your ability to communicate and build productive relationships with supporters will be second to none.  Your portfolio of prospects will be constantly refreshed with leads from our legacy direct marketing program, allowing you to focus on the work you love - engaging with qualified prospects and inspiring them to create a legacy with the Red Cross.

You have a high standard for donor stewardship and donor care principles.  You are a champion of planned giving with Red Cross colleagues, and a strong representative of professional fund raising in the community.

You will be part of our national multi-disciplinary Philanthropy team working within a collaborative culture.  The Canadian Red Cross offers a competitive salary and benefits package, career training and development programs, and the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive in a dynamic, challenging environment.

If you are an experienced planned gift fund raiser or have relevant transferable skills and are passionate about the work of the Red Cross, we would like to hear from you.
