The Inuit Art Foundation (IAF) is seeking an Annual Giving Manager to join our newly established and ever-expanding Administration team!

As our Annual Giving Manager, you will be responsible for planning, implementing, and managing activities to increase, diversify and sustain support from individuals. The Annual Giving Manager contributes to meeting fundraising goals and developing strategies to cultivate and steward donor relationships in order to create opportunities to give throughout the year.

Established in 1987, the Inuit Art Foundation is a non-profit, Inuit led charitable organization providing support to Canada’s Inuit arts communities. The sole national body mandated to promote Inuit art within Canada and internationally, the IAF undertakes advocacy work on behalf of artists and realizes a number of strategies aimed at enhancing the appreciation and interpretation of Inuit art. The Inuit Art Quarterly is the sole magazine dedicated to Inuit and circumpolar Indigenous art. In addition to its role as the publication of record for Inuit artists, it is one of the few sustained platforms profiling Inuit voices to the broader public through published interviews, authored articles and through featured artistic works. The IAQ is an award-winning industry leader in the cultivation and promotion of Indigenous arts writers and is committed to nuanced, dynamic, and multi-vocal writing on the contemporary and historical work of Inuit artists.

While our office is located in Toronto, this position may be located anywhere in Canada.

The Role:

A key member of the team, the Annual Giving Manager will be:

  • Developing, coordinating, and implementing multi-channel annual and monthly giving programs.
  • Managing and growing direct response fundraising campaigns, working closely with the IAF program teams on content development and promotion.
  • Maintaining a roster of active donors, moving prospective donors from identification through to cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship.


  • Previous experience with fundraising and donor relations.
  • Strong writing skills, particularly experience with fundraising and donor-centered communications.
  • Strong project management skills.
  • Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
