Join Our Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation Board of Directors

The Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation Seeks Community Leaders to Support Fundraising

The Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation (the Foundation) is a community based charitable organization committed to raising operational funding for the Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth (Rotary Hospice).

Rotary Hospice provides a peaceful, comfortable home with 24-hour specialized palliative care for those living with a life-limiting illness, as well as support for those in their care circle. It provides a needed alternative to institutional care facilities and home care - an essential option that did not previously exist in Huron Perth and Area until its official opening in June 2019.

The Foundation is seeking Directors interested in active engagement with Hospice fundraising. We are a team of committed leaders who are passionate about what Rotary Hospice means for our community, and are dedicated to ensuring the necessary funds are generated to finance both its annual operations and ongoing asset health.

The Foundation invites applications from individuals who enjoy working collaboratively, and who support the vision of hospice care and its importance to Stratford and Perth County. Specifically, we are interested in leaders with experience in property management, fundraising and donor stewardship. A keen interest in community outreach, combined with ties to the broader Perth County community will be particular assets. Experience with the not-for-profit and/or healthcare sectors would also be beneficial.

Hospice care is universal, and we do not discriminate on the base of race, sexual orientation, gender, or lifestyle choices. Accordingly, the foundation is strongly committed to equity and inclusion across our Board, staff and volunteer groups. Further, we are committed to achieving full accessibility for persons with disabilities by arranging for any necessary accommodations.

Individuals interested in pursuing this volunteer opportunity are encouraged to submit a resume and cover letter to board@rotaryhospice.ca, attention "Recruitment Committee". Requests for additional information can also be submitted to this address.

Application Deadline: August 14, 2021.
