Canadian Centre for Investigative Reporting needs volunteer fundraiser

The Canadian Centre for Investigative Reporting (CCIR) has put a call
out for a volunteer fundraising professional.

The press release reads:

“Are you a recently accredited CFRE? Semi-retired fundraiser? One of the
minions of ex-journalists whose rolodex (Did we say rolodex? We meant
Blackberry) is still brimming with contacts? The Canadian Centre for
Investigative Reporting (CCIR) needs your help!

“We are in need of someone with the energy and connections to develop the
CCIR’s resources further, so that we can become stable and sustainable into
the future. You should have a comprehensive knowledge of the fundraising
field in Canada, as well as access to major individual and institutional
donors. You will also need to be able to grow the CCIR’s funding base
through campaigns that realize our three-year strategic goals. Successful
candidates will need to be able to demonstrate initiative and work well
independently. This position is suitable for candidates in the Greater
Toronto Area.

“The CCIR, a registered charity in Canada, is the only independent
investigative organization of its kind in Canada. The CCIR is governed by a
national board of directors, with staff and headquarters in Hamilton,
Ontario. The CCIR structure also includes an international advisory board of
journalists and a network of investigative associate reporters, producers
and editors.

“This is a voluntary position with many responsibilities, but also great
opportunities as it’s intended to grow into an important paid position
within the organization.

Fundraising Professional’ in the subject header of your email):
