Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of 7 million ordinary people in more than 150 countries who come together to achieve extraordinary results in defending and promoting human rights. We get discriminatory laws changed and prisoners of conscience released. We’ve helped stop torture, commute death sentences and worked to end violence against women. We stand alongside Indigenous Peoples demanding that their rights be respected.
Amnesty International Canada is committed to employment equity, actively seeks diversity in the workplace, and welcomes and encourages applications from members of equity-seeking groups including women, transgender, non-binary, and LGBTI individuals; First Nations, Metis, and Inuit individuals, persons with disabilities, and members of racialized and marginalized groups.
The Major Gifts Officer (MGO) is a member of the Fundraising team. The primary focus of the post is raising funds for the Branch through major gifts from high-net worth individual (HNWI) donors.
As an integral member of the Major Gifts team, the Major Gifts Officer works closely with the Manager of Major Gifts and other team members, consultants, senior volunteers and fundraising staff to identify, cultivate and solicit support from major donors to the Branch.
Throughout their work, all Amnesty International Canada employees must demonstrate commitment to gender equity, integrate the perspectives of youth, and address the broader goals of diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-oppression.
