Are you looking for an opportunity to support communities through the pandemic and as we recover?
We invite you to join our growing fundraising team where you can support this vital work—and more.
We are looking for a Senior Development Officer to support our burgeoning fundraising activities and build on our momentum. We are currently poised to undertake broader public health work that will help BC advance the health of our communities. It is becoming increasingly clear that we need strong public health programs, research, services, leadership, and advocacy for community health and societal wellbeing, and even more clear that public health investment is a prerequisite for positive health.
Our approach to fundraising is collaborative, grounded in social justice, and responsive to community need. We are hiring for two new positions to join our Director of Development as we continue to build a strong foundation for the organization and address health inequities. The ideal candidate loves connecting with existing and new donors about supporting projects, their impact, and improving health equity.
The BCCDC Foundation is seeking a full-time Senior Development Officer to work with the Director of Development and Development Coordinator to develop and implement fund development strategies that support:
Duties and Responsibilities:
This role is based in the Lower Mainland. Our team is participating in hybrid in-office and remote work and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. We value in-person collaboration opportunities and also support all employees in creating remote work schedules that work best for them and the organization. Therefore, you must be able to successfully and comfortably manage time, tasks, and work functions via remote work.
We value a diverse team. Applications are strongly encouraged from all qualified individuals regardless of disability, culture, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, or religion. The BCCDC Foundation’s work focuses on addressing health inequities; as such our fundraising practices and program areas are developed through a lens of equity, diversity, and inclusion, anti-oppression and Reconciliation.
We would like to thank all applicants, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
The BCCDC Foundation for Population and Public Health (The Foundation) works in partnership with the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), and other stakeholders to improve public health outcomes. The Foundation puts healthy humans at the centre of health planning and funding. The only Foundation of its kind in Canada, the Foundation and its partners are building the model for public health that can be emulated across the country, and are best positioned to do so.
The BCCDC Foundation has been in a growth phase for the last several years. By working on key health promotion, prevention, and equity initiatives, our goal is to positively shift the health of our population and reduce the burden of disease and injury. Our priorities are: reducing harms; addressing threats; and emerging areas. For instance, with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been able to support pandemic response efforts and are positioned to continue this work to enhance our public health system in BC to prepare for and respond to future emerging threats. Another example is our work to address the overdose crisis—a public health emergency declared in 2016 and increasingly getting worse as the drug supply becomes more toxic and the pandemic has pushed more people into isolation.
We have funded more than 100 projects since our inception. For stories on our work, please visit: https://bccdcfoundation.org/whats-new/blog-posts/
As the philanthropic partner of the BCCDC, the Foundation operates as a tax-exempt charity with its own Board and administration; as such, it is an arm’s length organization that supports public health broadly. The Foundation is modelled in a way that we support public health and the BCCDC in unique ways through fundraising, grants and awards, communications, knowledge translation, as well as public education and awareness. By bringing these aspects to the excellent work of the BCCDC and the public health system, we provide a value-add for BC. This is an exciting time to be working in public health. Join us in securing more private funding at a pivotal time for the province and beyond.
