Position Description

A Search Facilitated by Nelson/Kraft & Associates Inc. for The Wellspring Foundation

The Wellspring Foundation (Wellspring) works tirelessly in partnership with the Rwandan people to empower leaders, teachers, and parents to take ownership over the success in their local schools.  Their goal is to ensure that the change sparked by employing Christian values-based education methods in each school will continue for generations to come.  “By adopting a humble approach and structuring our programs to empower others, Wellspring seeks to treat every person with the same dignity and worth that Jesus shows each of us.” (Andy Harrington, CEO)

Wellspring is seeing fantastic progress in their work so far and this growth requires additional resources to surge ahead.  They need a relational storyteller and big-picture thinker to work with a dynamic team and inspire donors in Ontario and the Eastern Canada/USA region to dedicate further financial commitments, leading to generations of improved lives through education in Rwanda and beyond.  The Ontario Development Officer (ODO) will experience first-hand the sustainable positive impact of Wellspring’s activities in Central and Eastern Africa, and convert these encounters into engaging events and presentations that appeal to a multi-generational, Eastern North American audience.

The ODO is a committed Christian with a strong fundraising background with successful abilities in mobilizing resources for a cause. He or she is passionate about Wellspring’s vision and mission and is able to clearly explain how to contribute to their strategic growth. The successful candidate can embrace a challenge, knows how to roll with the punches and likes to celebrate when things come together. Although Wellspring's head office is located in Langley, BC, the ODO will work remotely in Ontario.

Your love for connecting people with opportunities to financially support transformational change will multiply the successful impact on thousands of people within Central/Eastern Africa long into the future.  Contact us today!
