The Opportunity

We are seeking a Chief Development Officer to provide leadership and direction, in partnership with our Executive Director and our Board of Directors, to achieve Homewood Research Institute’s fundraising ambitions. The Chief Development Officer will be responsible for developing and overseeing the full portfolio of fund development activities to build and grow our donor relationships in an effort to increase philanthropic support.

Homewood Research Institute is still young, but it has quickly become a magnet for many of Canada’s and, in fact, the world’s leading thinkers in mental health. The Institute is now preparing to establish a national profile, a leading training program, a best-in-Canada data infrastructure, a more ambitious research program, and a system that guides mental health care in Canada into the next decade and beyond.

In this newly created role, the CDO will report to the Executive Director of the Homewood Research Institute and work with our Board and the leadership team of Homewood Health Inc. to develop and implement a three-year fundraising plan, with a specific focus on major gifts cultivation, solicitation and, stewardship. Homewood Research Institute is located in Guelph within the beautiful grounds of the Homewood Health Centre.
