Position: Development Director
Organization: Toronto Environmental Alliance
Location: Downtown Toronto, Ontario
The Toronto Environmental Alliance is seeking a Development Director.
Who We Are:
TEA was founded in 1988. Our mandate is to promote a greener Toronto for all. We work with concerned individuals and grassroots organizations, professionals and workers, as well as elected officials, encouraging the participation of local people on local issues. TEA envisions Toronto as a green, healthy and equitable city with economic activity that sustains our environment.
TEA is recognized locally and nationally for our municipal work on climate change, waste reduction, toxics reduction, transit, Greenbelt protection, energy efficiency and green power -- issues we believe are critical to the health and well-being of Toronto residents. Our collaborations with the community (eg. community groups, local labour groups, small businesses, anti-poverty groups) are cherished and key to our past and future successes.
We are a not-for-profit organization that is not a charity. This ensures there are no legal restrictions to our advocacy work faced by charities subject to federal tax laws. We are fiercely non-partisan and work closely with any decision-maker who wants to build a greener city for all.
TEA is looking for a Development Director who is passionate about environmental issues and engaging the public. This person understands the importance of engaging people where they live and wants to be part of a smaller not-for-profit organization that demands wearing many hats.
The Development Director will bring energy and innovation to a mature organization that has an excellent reputation at Toronto City Hall and with its donors, funders, supporters and community allies. The person will directly manage two development staff and oversee a 5-15 person canvass team. The Director will implement a Development Plan that puts a primary focus on creating and nurturing donor relationships through a door, phone and digital canvass program.
As part of the Management Team alongside the Executive Director and Campaigns Director, the Development Director will help implement TEA’s Strategic Plan (which currently is a living document) and ensure TEA’s advocacy activities also help achieve organizational fundraising and campaign goals.
The Development Director manages the Development Coordinator, who is in charge of database maintenance and data tracking, as well as the Development Manager, who manages both the door and phone canvass teams.
Internal Data Management
Terms of employment:
