Job Description

TFS – Canada’s International School is a leading independent educational institution that has been instrumental in the shaping of today’s Canada, as the first French immersion school in the country and a pioneer of bilingualism. Co-educational and non-denominational, TFS serves a student population of 1,400, from age two to university entrance. There are over 2,900 TFS alumni in 31 countries. As a new Master Plan ignites its most ambi­tious philanthropic campaign, the School has centralized all fundraising, investment, and steward­ship in a recon­sti­tuted Founda­tion. In the newly created role of President, you will report to the Foundation Chair and the Headmaster, and lead a team in building a culture of philanthropy across the TFS community.

You have a proven record of direct, personal leadership in major gift fundraising, including leading significant campaigns. Positive and diligent, with a quick intelligence, you are a highly organized strategist and synthesizer, an effective coach and team-builder, and a tireless cultivator of mutually beneficial relationships. You have the expertise to develop a sophisticated advancement function, including a systematic, strategic, and creative approach to donor pipeline development, cultivation, and stewardship. Collaborative and business-minded, you are passionate about the transformative power of education on young people and our society, and will work to effectively heighten and integrate the Foundation’s work in support of the School’s mission.

With experience in every aspect of advancement, you will be the functional leader as well as a trusted strategic advisor to the Headmaster, the Foundation Chair, and the Boards of the School and the Founda­tion. You will not find another school in Canada like TFS; the community is primed for your infectious energy, insight, and drive. With the support of active, engaged parents, you will spark a commitment that moves the entire community closer to realizing a wiser, better future, courtesy of the TFS students who are inspired and empowered to make an impact in the world.
