JOB: Fundraising & Development Coordinator – Port Moody Arts Centre Society (Port Moody, British Columbia)
Fundraising & Development Coordinator (part-time contract)
The Port Moody Arts Centre Society operates a non-profit, full-service arts centre in the heart of Port Moody. As an active leader in the arts, we inspire creativity in our community by offering over 300 arts programs annually, serving as the box office for the City’s Inlet Theatre facility, supporting an artist’s co-op gift shop, hosting monthly artist exhibits in our four gallery spaces and sponsoring a variety of special events throughout the year.
The Port Moody Arts Centre Society is seeking a creative, self-motivated and well-organized individual to take us to the next level of fundraising and sponsorship opportunities. Under the direction of the Executive Director, and with the support of the Society’s Fundraising Committee, the Fundraising & Development Coordinator will be responsible for creating, managing and implementing an organizational fundraising plan with emphasis on donors, sponsors and granting agencies to meet pre-determined funding targets. The incumbent will be the key user of our new on-line foundation search tools to increase our grants from foundations, will coordinate with our Event Coordinator to identify needs for event sponsors and supporters, and will foster relationships with our members and individual, community and corporate partners to meet the needs of the Society.
The next year will be an exciting time for the Arts Centre as we plan for the potential expansion of our programs and services with the addition of the Centennial/Appleyard House, bringing about many opportunities for increased funding and naming rights.
