come join our growing team
The Good Partnership values the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalized or oppressed communities bring to our company, and we encourage those people to apply. We recognize that structural barriers shape experiences and job qualifications, and therefore we seek to use employment equity to differentiate between candidates who meet the required qualifications. We use an anonymized job application process and encourage people to apply even if they feel that the position would be a stretch.
fundraising strategist and project coordinator
You’ll be the fundraising lead for up to 3 clients, managing their day-to-day fundraising. This requires fundraising strategic oversight (we'll help train you on that) as well as to execute on the all the small details that make our work stand-out.
You are a fundraising generalist who is eager to learn and has a passion for social justice and small nonprofits in Canada.
Your work will vary by client, but you will have the opportunity to implement all types of fundraising strategies. You will also be a relationship management superstar, making our clients feel amazing about work with us.
We are a fun and hard-working team that builds in time-off and meaningful breaks. We value you and your contributions to the company and our clients.
The Good Partnership is still in our start-up phase - but we’re growing! In the short-term, our operating budget is limited. As such, this is a 12-month, full-time contract position based on a $40,000 - $55,000 annual salary. We are a ROWE (Results Only Work Environment) organization, we manage to outcomes, not time spent at your desk.
We have a small health-benefits package after 3 months. We close for 2 weeks over the winter holidays and you have other time off as you need it. Flexible working hours and location. Our office is in downtown Toronto.
We are committed to action-learning and foster an environment of experimentation and professional development.
To be a great fit for this role you are:
Early in your career and excited to learn;
A passionate fundraiser with a panache for managing relationships;
Experience managing projects, programs, products or events;
Connected to the charitable sector either through work experience, volunteer experience or as a regular and committed donor
A futurist - you’re not just thinking about what works now, but love to imagine how things will work five years from now
Nimble and adaptive, ready to adjust to emerging opportunities and priorities, working quickly and accurately.
Nothing stands in your way! If there is something that needs to get done, you step up and do it.
Please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is your chance to make a stellar first-impression and we encourage creativity!
The Good Partnership is a small, but mighty, Toronto-based fundraising consultancy. What sets us apart is that we don’t just provide strategy and coaching for our charity clients, we actually implement the plans that we co-create. We’re not in the business of defining a fundraising strategy and walking away, rather we become our clients’ fundraising partner; writing donor updates, managing peer to peer campaigns, working with corporate partners on cause-marketing efforts, scheduling donor meetings, writing grants, coaching ED’s and board members through asks - anything fundraising related.
Instead of hiring a member of staff, our clients depend on us for all their fundraising goals. We build the strategy, develop the tactical plan, and most importantly, we implement that plan. From year-end mail outs, monthly giving campaigns, donor-centric cultivation events, and setting up automations and databases, we’ll do it all.
Still in the start-up phase of the business, we are looking for hard-working, ambitious staff members who want to get hands-on experience with meaningful coaching to build their careers, but who are okay with a bit of flexibility, ambiguity, and instability with work. We only have short-term contract positions available now, but our goal is to transition these to full-time and permanent positions.
what it's like to work here
Our team is small but mighty and every day is different! We focus on making sure our clients have success with their fundraising and also that they have an amazing experience with our company.
We operated on a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) - where the focus is on getting the work done. That means flexible work hours and location. However, we work hard in service to our clients. We also aim to work smart and love productivity and collaboration.
We offer ongoing learning and coaching, with a special emphasis on hands-on learning. We’ll give you projects that will help you grow and provide space to learn within your work (including learning from mistakes).
Small charities are the backbone of the nonprofit sector in Canada, yet so few resources exist to help them build their fundraising revenue in a consistent, meaningful way. It’s not about the ideas - there are plenty of those. We focus on implementation, addressing the number one constraint small charities site as a barrier to their success - TIME. Our goal is to uplift and empower small charities and help them do more of what they do best - change the world.
