Position: Volunteer Fundraising Manager
Organization: Reimagine Agriculture
Location: virtual anywhere in Canada
Reimagine Agriculture is looking for a fundraising lead who can help us develop consistent funding for our organization. The position will involve building out both the individual and major donor sections of our funding streams and working on grant requests and requests to foundations.
About Reimagine Agriculture:
We founded Reimagine Agriculture because we saw the opportunity to address pressing agricultural issues like food waste and animal agriculture that are not currently being given enough attention in Canada. The farming sector is often overlooked in the critical and ongoing conversations surrounding waste and climate change.
As agricultural waste and demand for meat, dairy, eggs and other products of animal agriculture continue to grow worldwide, their contributions to the already dire effects of climate change will worsen. Applying our expertise to these critically overlooked issues, Reimagine Agriculture is committed to reducing the negative impacts of these systems, building the changes in Canada that are needed throughout the world.
We accomplish these goals through the primary use of education through knowledge mobilization, building alliances, and policy change. This can be in the form of presentations to various age groups and organizations, national campaigns with democratic engagement, and working with related stakeholders. Our focus is on being effective, using evidence-based reasoning and meeting people where they are. Our team is a small group of dedicated individuals and friends who are working together to make strategic and operational decisions for Reimagine Agriculture.

What we are looking for in you:
With REAG still being a developing organization, we have a long way to go to developing long term stable and viable funding. We are hoping to work with someone who will help manage and guide our finances. Working in combination with board members and the executive director, this person will help us reach out to major donors, strategize on funding campaigns, help implement a donor timeline and work on letters to grants and foundations. We are incredibly proud of how far we’ve come, yet need more support for continued development.
It is important to us to have a volunteer who has a strong understanding of these agricultural issues and a passion to address them. Applicants should be open-minded and thoughtful. It is absolutely not necessary to be vegetarian or vegan for the position (and may even be an asset as that is the primary population we work with).
Interested individuals can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a few paragraphs explaining why they’re passionate about these agricultural issues, what they think they can bring to the position and an attached resume. Applicants are due by November 2nd.
