Contract Position Available: Are you the person we are looking for?

Help us achieve our goals by raising the funds we need

AMI-Québec is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization committed to helping carers manage the effects of mental illness through support, education, guidance and advocacy. (Carers are family members and other significant people who provide unpaid support to a person in need.) By promoting understanding, we work to dispel the stigma still surrounding mental illness, thereby helping to create communities that offer new hope for meaningful lives. For the past 42 years AMI has supported countless families and has played an increasingly important role in advocating for policy and system improvement.

Less than half our annual operating budget is secured (recurrent); the balance is obtained through fundraising activities and project funding. Without these funds we would not be able to properly address the needs of families and offer the wide menu of programs we presently offer.

We are looking for an individual who has experience, expertise, and an interest in fundraising to assume the challenging role of helping us ensure we can continue to deliver our programs. You can be a fundraising expert, a grant proposal writer or anyone who can demonstrate their ability to achieve this goal.

We are looking for a person with:

  1. Demonstrated experience and results in either fundraising or grant application
  2. Familiarity with the context of mental illness / mental health
  3. Understanding of the nature/culture of community-based organizations
  4. Bilingual skills (English/French)

We want to hear from you! Details of the contract will be determined together.

Please send your submission to jobapplication@amiquebec.org by August 15, 2020.
