Fundraising Committee Member

In the absence of any federal or provincial government funding, the GTHS organizes multiple events annually to raise much-needed funds.  We are seeking talented, outgoing and passionate individuals who can help us reach our fundraising goals and, in turn, support thousands of homeless animals.

This is NOT a traditional fundraising role – our Fundraising Committee Members use their unique talents and interests to make our events a success (and thereby help us raise funds).  Apply today to make a difference by using your organizational, planning, admin, sales, networking and/or people skills!

In 2023, as a result of our programs and services, more than 1500 homeless cats and dogs were provided shelter and 1300 animals found their forever home, 4000 youth were positively impacted, approximately 3000 spay/neuter/dental/specialized surgeries were performed, 2784 donors supported our mission and 1000 pets were supported through our Pet Pantry program.

Description
Fundraising Committee Members have drive, passion and ideas to support the implementation and success of our events – all while having fun! Each Committee Member will assume specific roles and responsibilities based on their strengths (for example: marketing, networking, people management, fundraising, sourcing…), and will be involved from inception and initial planning, all the way through to execution of the event itself and post-event activities. Bring your strengths but be prepared to pitch in! Members will provide progress updates at committee meetings so, as a team, we can evaluate where we are and realign when necessary; to ensure the success of our events. Committee members may also be expected to develop existing and potential sponsor / donor relationships.
