Chief Development Officer

Calgary AB

The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta since the ‘80s. It has become a haven for those needing help, which is offered through open hands with unconditional love.

 

The initial idea for a street ministry for the homeless grew out of the Burning Bush Coffeehouse in Calgary, Alberta, which was run by the First Baptist Church in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. It became a reality in 1984, when founder Pat Nixon planted The Mustard Seed in an old house downtown, which later grew into a larger building on 11 Avenue SE.

 

The Mustard Seed has been an agent of change for more than three decades.

 

Today, The Mustard Seed has expanded across western Canada with multiple locations in Alberta and British Columbia. It offers an expansive range of programs and services to our most vulnerable community by providing basic needs (food, clothing, and hygiene items), education, employment programs, health and wellness services, spiritual care, housing, and emergency shelter.

The more than 400 staff who work at The Mustard Seed care about the whole person – physical, mental and spiritual. They recognize that the root cause of poverty and homelessness are complex and diverse, and so the organization continues to grow with the needs of those it serves.

Responsibilities Include:

The Mustard Seed is seeking an engaging, motivated, results-oriented individual to take on this exciting leadership role. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Development Officer (CDO) will be responsible for overseeing the execution of fundraising activities for The Mustard Seed. Working closely with the CEO and the Executive Team to maximize philanthropic support, the CDO will develop and help execute a multifaceted fundraising program. S/he will lead the development team to identify, cultivate, solicit and steward significant donors and seek out new sources of revenue.

 

Qualifications:

  • An opportunity-seeker who is a strategic and visionary leader with a minimum of 5 - 7 years in a senior position in for-profit or non-profit leadership
  • Deep experience managing a six to seven figure major gift portfolio or sales portfolio and/or with strong business development skills
