Vice President, Philanthropy & Partnerships – World Vision Canada
This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of World Vision Canada


We are seeking a new leader for our Philanthropy and Partnerships team in Canada, someone who can lead a talented fundraising team to inspire Canadian supporters to engage and invest in some of our exciting visions for the future: unleashing the hope, initiative and creativity of vulnerable young people to help transform their lives; providing families the tools to overcome extreme poverty in the world's most fragile places; giving women and girls the opportunities to flourish and reach their full potential. When you work at World Vision, your passions and talents come together to meet the greatest needs in the world today. As we follow Jesus, we go to ends of the earth and into the margins. Where few go and the road is less traveled. This servant leader will work with internal stakeholders and external partners to ensure alignment with the enterprise organization strategy, Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and the World Vision partnership aspiration.

The Vice President, Philanthropy and Partnerships will generate value and raise funds for World Vision’s international programs through leadership of all philanthropic engagement and relationships with high-net-worth individuals, corporations, foundations, and legacy givers as well as develop meaningful partnerships with Canadian churches.

As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, you will participate in strategic planning for the organization and create a growth plan for the Philanthropy and Partnerships team that inspires and provides a way for Canadians to shift the typical charitable value exchange from simply good will to effective impact in the world. We aspire for World Vision Canada to be the top partner of choice for high-net-worth givers and other specialized partners.
