ORGANIZATION: Biosphere EcoCities Canada

  • 1 person is interested

Fundraising Coordinator to help fundraise, research, write and review grants applications for the organization.

BECC was formed in 2021 to support development of Biosphere Eco-Cities (BECs) in Canada. BECs use simple themes and tools to engage people in sustainability. There are currently initiatives in five cities - Ottawa (since 2009) and Toronto, Brampton, Edmonton, and Vancouver (the last four since 2021).

The Fundraising Coordinator will assist the BECC secretariat and Board to obtain funding for BECC staff, and for both national (BECC) and BEC city projects. This will include the following:

  • Research of granting and funding opportunities

  • Drafting of funding proposals

  • Review and advice on said proposals

  • Connecting with funders formally or informally i.e. sending Letters of Intent

  • Building a Donor or Membership base

National project funding will be sought and administered by BECC. Where possible, BECC will assist BEC cities to find funding for their projects over the next year. Partnerships with other organizations may figure into both types of project fundraising.

In the longer term, the Fundraising Coordinator would work with the secretariat to draft a fundraising strategy for board review. This person could also liaise with the HR Coordinator and Web Team Leader on implementation of that strategy. And advice to BEC cities on fundraising for staff could be needed then too.

About BECC:
Biosphere Eco-Cities Canada (BECC) is a national, non-profit network that works to connect all Biosphere Eco-Cities across Canada. A Biosphere Eco-City (BEC) is an urban area and surrounding countryside where cooperation and collaboration ensure that everyone’s actions can contribute to sustainability; ultimately fostering a culture of sustainability. Currently, there are five BEC initiatives across Canada; Ottawa (OBEC), Toronto (TBEC), Brampton (BBEC), Edmonton (EBEC), and Vancouver (VBEC). BECC provides support and acts as a resource and tool for collaboration among BECs while also implementing national sustainability projects.

BECs use 10 Themes of Sustainability (transportation, energy, design, habitat, food, natural capital, waste, health, recreation, and sense of place) and 5 Tools of Engagement (Database of Projects, Sustainability Plans, Workshops on Individual Themes, Demonstration Projects, and Council of Stakeholders) to create a culture of sustainability through community engagement, cooperation, innovation and sharing of knowledge, skills and information for sustainability.
