Job Description

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation is a true general hospital providing care from birth to end-of-life, serving 400,000 people living in East Toronto. We deliver first-rate care on a first-name basis - 90 per cent of the health-care people need, at a level of excellence rivalling anywhere else in the city. We also excel in developing tomorrow’s health-care leaders, with the largest community and family medicine teaching program affiliated with the University of Toronto.

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation’s catchment area is unique in Toronto and the most diverse in Canada. As well, more seniors live alone in East Toronto than anywhere else in the city. Poverty and isolation—two of the most critical social determinants of health—affect people in our neighbourhoods disproportionately.

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation has embarked on the Heart of the East Campaign, our $100-million fundraising effort in support of our $500-million redevelopment project. The Heart of the East will completely transform our campus, including construction of the new, eight-storey Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre and the dramatic redevelopment of our existing facility. Join our team to help us equip Michael Garron Hospital to meet the needs of our growing city and our diverse, often under-served community.

Currently we have an exciting opportunity for an individual who wants to advance their career as a:

Intermediate Giving Officer (Full-Time)

Reporting to the Vice President, Events, Annual & Operations, the Intermediate Giving Officer will develop and execute a community giving program aimed at engaging and mobilizing groups with capacity to support the Heart of the East, our recently launched $100-million fundraising campaign.

This individual is responsible for identifying and qualifying prospective donors, cultivating positive relationships and directly soliciting donations at the intermediate gift level. We are looking for a confident, organized and social individual with strong verbal and written communication skills who will be our active voice and brand champion across these target groups.

These programs are intended to capitalize on giving opportunities through the creation of products to upgrade existing donors, attract new donors and build a culture of philanthropy in our community. The incumbent will also generate leads for other portfolios, including identifying prospective donors at the $10,000+ level and identifying opportunities for third-party events.
