Salary Range: $85,000 – $95,000 / annually 

Location: Victoria, BC or remote – anywhere in Canada

Hours: Full-time, Monday-Friday with occasional evening and weekend work required 

About RAVEN:

R.A.V.E.N. (Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs) is Canada’s only organization dedicated to advancing Indigenous rights and environmental protection through fundraising for access to justice.

Fundraising is in our DNA: everything we do has the simple, powerful goal of motivating people to donate, fundraise, and organize events in support of Nations which take to the courts to advance their rights and defend their territories.

When RAVEN was formed in 2009, it was because the board recognized the need to redress an inherent imbalance. Since our humble beginnings in a donated office based in Victoria, BC with just one staff person, we have organically grown to a capacity that can support many campaigns at one time, and we have enjoyed significant successes.

Position Summary:

The Fundraising Campaigns Director plans, leads and executes fundraising campaigns for issue-specific and Nation-specific litigation.

The Fundraising Campaigns Director is accountable for a diverse portfolio of responsibilities including:

  • Planning: Strategize the tactics and timelines for all campaigns in collaboration with the communications team and partner Nations.
  • Relationships and Communications: Develop and maintain relationships with First Nations partners and their legal teams, funders, and NGO partners. Attend important events hosted by partner Nations, visit communities and speak at campaign events.
  • Project Management: Plan and organize campaign-related events, including setting dates and messaging for e-blasts (in collaboration with Communications Director), directing and supervising contractors and campaign volunteers.
  • Grants: Write and edit grant applications.
  • Financial Accountability: Track key financial metrics, oversee disbursements and draw up contracts with campaign contractors and overseeing payments to them.

The successful candidate will have knowledge of colonization and Indigenous history including the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, UNDRIP and Indigenous legal issues. They will have a high degree of legal literacy and a passion for the cause that is grounded in related experience. They will have strong problem-solving skills and a high level of organizational ability.

We accept all self-identifying Indigenous employees including status, non-status, Metis, and Inuit pursuant to Section 42 of the BC Human Rights Code. We honour and understand Indigenous cultures and values and do our best to support our employees. Indigenous people, people of colour, Two-Spirit or LGBTQA+ people, and members of other marginalized groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
