Manager of Fund Development

Huron Hospice is located on a tranquil rural estate just west of Clinton, Ontario. The four-bed residence is staffed around the clock by an RN and RPN with further support provided twelve hours daily to residents and their families by welcoming volunteers. Huron Hospice also provides supports to residents in the community of Huron County through hospice home visits and grief recovery groups. While we are grateful to the Ministry of Health for support of our services, this funding does not cover the full budget. The Manager of Fund Development has responsibility for engaging with the community in support of its hospice. This occurs through special events, grant funding, corporate sponsorships, donations, large gifts and planned giving. We are looking for a positive, energetic and results-driven fund development specialist to join our team.
