Job Description

Vice President, Advancement


Experiencing vibrant arts and culture transforms the way we look at ourselves and the world around us. Over the next five years, Glenbow will evolve its role in the community as one of Canada’s most innovative public art museums. We will use our diverse and remarkable collections and engage artists and creators to excite audiences with meaningful and memorable experiences that shape the conversation about the important role that art and culture play in our community.

As Vice President, Advancement, you will work with dynamic colleagues to build one of Canada’s most innovative public art museums. By providing the vision for an integrated advancement and communications strategy, you will lead all fundraising activities, constituent communication strategies, government and community relations, foundation giving, grants, individual giving, corporate sponsorships, annual giving, membership services, special events, and other types of funding and external relation programs to promote the Glenbow’s journey to become one of Canada’s premier art museums.

Reporting directly to the President and CEO and working with an energized Board of Governors, you will lead a diverse team of advancement and communications professionals in creating and executing high-impact fundraising plans that utilize best practices in annual, major, and planned gift programs. In the Spring of 2019, Glenbow is launching a capital campaign to transform Glenbow’s building into a cultural destination at the core of the City.  You will build relationships with the Museum’s past, current and future benefactors, lead innovative and ongoing advancement initiatives and foster community partnerships with foundations, community-based organizations and all levels of government to advance the Glenbow’s financial position and reputation as a leading public art museum. 



Seen as a leader in the fundraising community and an essential member of your leadership team, you have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and 15 years of professional experience developing strategic partnerships and securing major gifts. Your proven achievement and ability have prepared you to take on this impactful role. You are an exceptional communicator and are at your best when building and strengthening relationships across an array of constituencies that advances the mission of your organization.
