Current open positions:

Over the past two years United Way Waterloo Region Communities (WRC) has been revamping the way we work in our local community, from completely changing our funding model to be as responsive to community need as possible, to embarking on a new campaign for a cause model to connect with the individual Waterloo Region resident on making an impact on what’s important to them. We are looking for an energetic, self-motivated, outside of the box thinker to join our team and take our fundraising strategy to the next level. This role comes with incredible opportunities to build relationships with individuals and organizations across the community to come together and raise support for the most pressing issues we are seeing today.

The purpose of this position is to direct and execute United Way WRC’s fundraising efforts, which includes developing and leading a new dynamic and impactful New Business Development Strategy, with the aim of continuing to grow the community campaign and help guide the transition from a workplace focused campaign to one focused on the individual donor. This position will work cross functionally to achieve all goals.


This position will help to strengthen existing and develop new partnerships using strong relationship management skills and practices. This will be achieved by delivering on new and evolving fundraising and stewardship practices while utilizing current marketing and communication products and initiatives.
