Request for Proposal – Development Specialist

Development Specialist/ Capital Campaign Consultant – Posting 02/06/2021

A collaborative of health and social service agencies is planning a large Community Hub in Brantford Ontario that will co-locate all agencies on a single site and ensure that services are accessible, welcoming, and inclusive. The Hub Development Committee, under the leadership of Willowbridge Community Services, is seeking the consultation services of a Fundraising and Capital Campaign Expert who will support the development of a capital campaign fundraising strategy. This strategy should detail a plan and approach for capital fundraising that can be implemented beginning November 2021.

Deliverables will include assembling and managing a Capital Campaign Committee, the development of fundraising goals, identification of prospective investors, a project budget, an implementation plan, key message development, contingency plans, supporting documents, a case statement, and a timeline. The Committee is also exploring the role of social finance – such as Community Impact Bonds – as a funding vehicle. The Development Strategist will be expected to collaborate with the Social Finance Strategist and the retained Communications Firm to ensure consistency across campaigns.
