Position: Part Time Social Justice Fundraising
Organization: ACORN Canada
Location: Ottawa, Ontario

ACORN Canada is looking for motivated individuals interested in fighting and winning local, provincial and national social justice campaigns in Canada. ACORN Canada is made up of more than 120,000 low and moderate-income member families, in 20 local chapters throughout the country, organized democratically through community organizing.

We are Canada's largest grassroots community organization for low and moderate income families. We have won many important social justice campaigns around payday lending, tenant issues, disability rights and fair banking.

Job description:

You will be part of a fundraising team that supports local, grassroots community organizing in order to expand the reach of Ottawa ACORN's economic justice campaigns. Our campaigns don't get money from the government or big corporations so we can hold the powers that be accountable; fundraising allows us to stay independent and serve the interest of our members (not some outside funder!). In addition to fundraising, the job will include direct door to door contact with people living in low to moderate income neighbourhoods discussing local issues and getting people involved in the organization.

No experience is required. Professional fundraising & organizing training provided. Room for advancement in organization is available.

Ideal Candidates Are:

  • Passionate about justice and social change
  • Strong, confident communicators
  • Able to work 3-5 shifts a week (standard shift is 3-7:30pm after a two week training period)

More on ACORN: For over a decade ACORN Canada has been building capacity for low and moderate income people so they can champion their own issues to decision-makers. From our successful pay day lending regulations campaign to winning improvements to enforcement of municipal housing standards, ACORN Canada has demonstrated how to effectively make community change through a membership model of community organizing.
