Heart & Stroke is adding bold, fearless and compassionate people to our dedicated teams across the country. We need analytical, creative, decisive, approachable people who are embedded in the community they live in with their families, neighbours, and friends. People with unbounded energy, an understanding of how to nurture relationships, and the commitment to help solve a massive problem.

Our Vancouver office needs a Community Engagement Coordinator for our My Own Fundraiser (MOF) Program. This is THE opportunity you have been looking for to build your career in non-profit; but it’s far from the norm. You will have a chance to work directly with high-profile clients, supporting and sourcing events primarily in the greater Vancouver vicinity as well as other areas throughout the province. This is a new endeavour with the potential to more than double the events and fundraising dollars that are generated. There is a near limitless opportunity here for someone with the determination and passion for making things happen. If you want to blend the world of event management, community engagement, corporate networking and non-profit fundraising, this is the opportunity for you. It’s a chance to build out your role and raise your own profile in stakeholder management; a chance to do amazing things every day.
What’s in it for you? Heart.
Hear the stories. From the 8-year-old boy who recognized the signs of a stroke in his father the day after a Jump Rope for Heart kick-off session at his school to the tearful thank you of a parent whose child has a future thanks to research we funded. You will know that your work has meaning. You will experience deep personal satisfaction as you lead your fundraising teams to success.
Every dollar counts. Every volunteer is vital. Every relationship is valued. You will feel the impact of your efforts as you grow and nurture corporate relationships and bring in the donations we need to continue to educate Canadians and fund research - including research that will close the gap in women’s heart and brain health.
Amazement. That feeling you get at the end of every day you are part of our team making a tangible impact on the well-being of your family, your friends, your community. You will be part of a foundation that worked to reduce trans fats in the food supply, place AEDs in communities across the country and control the marketing of tobacco.
Rewards. With an impressive benefits package including pension and flexible hours, you will be well compensated for your efforts and commitment. As part of a fun, dedicated team with a supportive culture, you will build internal relationships, sharing ideas, learning and mentoring each other.
Timing. Now is the time to make a career move into a foundation to do meaningful work every day.
Who you are
You have broad and deep connections in the corporate and public sector. You know how to grow and nurture network and stakeholder relations and you have a book of contacts and connections you can reach out. You are someone driven by the need to work for a place with purpose. You want to grow your career in the non-profit sector working at the grassroots level with the businesses and with individual community members to meet and exceed fundraising targets.
