Kingston Road United Church, a century old liberal congregation with a history of social program delivery, is seeking a part-time Community Partnership Builder.

Our beautiful building is greatly valued by both the congregation and the wider community. However, it is very expensive to maintain. Rentals are currently contributing substantially to its upkeep, but we need to do more. Our plan is to form deeper relationships in which organizations and individuals in our neighbourhood are able to work with us as partners by delivering services to the community and actively participating in funding the costs of the building through grant applications, sponsorships and other activities. The two key service areas in which we wish to expand are the arts (especially the performing arts) and health.

The Community Partnership Builder will be instrumental in this process. She or he will work with a committee of church volunteers and the church governors to:

  • Identity potential candidates for partnership that reflect both the values of the congregation and the needs of the community;
  • Research potential grant funding for the work of the partnership candidates;
  • Initiate contact with candidates to assess interest and follow up with introductory interviews where warranted;
  • Help to gather information about the needs of current and potential partners, especially where the building is concerned;
  • Apply for grants in support of the work of approved candidates and in support of Kingston Road United Church itself.

The Community Partnership Builder will have the following qualifications:

  • Strong communication skills, both oral and written, including the ability to write professional and compelling grant applications
  • Strong research skills
  • An understanding of fundraising as it applies to community organizations in health and the performing arts
  • A concern for social wellbeing and an interest in community building
  • A highly collaborative approach, with the ability to build strong relationships with a broad spectrum of partners and stakeholders
  • The ability to work independently along with the judgement to seek guidance where appropriate
  • A home office with resources sufficient to conduct the day to day activities of the position

The position is for 17½ hours a week for one year. An extension may be available. The job is home-based, so hours are flexible; weekly on-site meetings and some TTC travel will be required.
