We’re hiring: Impact and Giving Coordinator!
Job Opportunity: Impact and Giving Coordinator, Toronto Vegetarian Association
The Toronto Vegetarian Association (TVA) is a very inclusive, pro-vegan, non-profit organization that inspires people to choose a healthier, greener, more compassionate plant-based lifestyle. As we continue to evolve and grow, our goal is to be as innovative and ahead of the curve in 2021 as we were in 1945 when we were founded.
To support our mission and vision we are growing our team to include an Impact & Giving Coordinator (IGC), who will be responsible for revenue generation and fundraising efforts in the areas of impact and giving for the TVA. We are seeking an engaging individual who thrives in a dynamic role, can collaborate effectively and can build and deepen relationships and community. The successful candidate will have their finger on the pulse of the vegan movement, informing our programs and keeping our work current and relevant.
To thrive in this role, the IGC must be social media savvy and act as a TVA brand champion. We need an individual who is as comfortable writing a blog post as they are writing a petition or speaking to the value and impact of donations to a prospective donor.
The successful candidate will be the point of contact for our community of members, donors and volunteers. They will coordinate the end-to-end giving process, from growth and revenue, to engagement, retention and administration. They will play a key role in growing our program, advocacy and gifting revenue streams through campaign management, supporter relations and impact research. We are looking for a candidate with excellent communication skills both oral and written and ability to provide an exceptional customer service experience to our community and supporters.
The IGC must be a team player, supporting the Executive Director, TVA Team, Board and Committees as we work together to improve our organization and grow our impact. We are a small, but growing staff team, akin to a startup-type environment. Responding to inquiries, processing payments, renewals, tax receipts and ordering supplies, are part of the role. We roll up our sleeves here and get things done. The IGC must be a self-starter with an open, growth-oriented mindset. We believe in providing opportunities for enrichment and career progression.
We are looking to hire someone who identifies as vegan.
