Working closely with donor relations staff, and at times with Abundance Canada, this salaried part-time term position will implement MCC Canada’s Legacy Giving plans on behalf of the MCC provincial offices. This includes identifying and soliciting planned giving donor prospects from the MCC donor community.
The Planned Giving Associate position reports to the Donor Engagement Manager.
This position requires the incumbent to live out embrace the Christian Faith foundation of MCC; ensuring the Christian ethos and Principles and Practices of MCC permeates their work and relationships.
