Vice President, Campaign 


Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation is seeking an exceptional fundraising leader as our Vice President, Campaign as we embark on the largest campaign in our history.

Building upon the success of several recently completed spotlight campaigns for Men’s Health, Mental Health, the Maternal Child Program, and Cancer Care, Southlake is now focused on preparing for and executing a transformational effort to meet the exponential demand for care in support of our rapidly growing communities.  Bolstered by the vision of our new Southlake CEO, Dr. Paul Woods, Southlake is establishing a multi-site health system with the ambitious re-development of the current site and creating new, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities in the region as we reimagine healthcare for our expansive catchment that serves, though our regional programs, over 1.5 million people across many very special communities.

This is a once-in-a-career opportunity for the successful candidate recruited to this newly created leadership position to work collaboratively with both the Foundation’s President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Development Officer (CDO), in partnership with the Hospital, to provide expert leadership and support to the entire Foundation team of volunteers and staff to achieve transformational growth throughout this historic and comprehensive fundraising campaign.

Responsible for strategic and functional leadership to the Foundation’s campaign design; development and operations; and managing a portfolio of high-impact donors, the VP, Campaign, will lead the strategy and coordinate implementation to bring the organization through the various phases of the comprehensive Campaign.

At Southlake, we believe that fundraising is a team sport and the VP, Campaign will lead in concert with Foundation and Hospital leadership; act as the primary resource for senior volunteers; and serve as the day-to-day operational lead for the Foundation team, with the support of an evolving Campaign staff.  As an integral member of the Leadership Team and working collaboratively and cross-functionally across the Foundation, the VP will develop and drive campaign activities, schedules, timelines, and processes engendering a sense of excitement, optimism, and confidence toward achieving the Campaign’s goals.

Reporting to the Chief Development Officer, the VP, Campaign will demonstrate deep knowledge of and commitment to Southlake’s mission, clinical priorities, the communities we serve, and the impact of philanthropy in advancing healthcare. The new VP will be a champion of Southlake’s commitment to delivering leading-edge care, close to home, our ambitious new Campaign, and the role of transformative philanthropy to reimagine the future of healthcare.



Since the inception of Southlake Foundation in 1980, more than $234 million has been raised in support of Southlake Regional Health Centre. Working with members of our communities, volunteers, our Southlake Family and our dedicated donors, Southlake Foundation will continue to support the most urgent needs of our hospital, including things like life-saving medical equipment, infrastructure upgrades and expansions, patient programs and staff education, all for the goal of providing leading-edge care for patients and families, close to home.

Our Shared Purpose:  We build healthy communities, and shape the future of healthcare, through outstanding care, innovative partnerships and amazing people.

We are the leader in transformative philanthropy and are the most trusted and highest-priority charity in our catchment.

At Southlake Foundation, we fundraise with one goal in mind: supporting our leading-edge hospital and the communities it serves. As our community grows and changes, our hospital and Foundation fundraising goals grow too — always looking forward to ensuring that we are optimally serving our current and future patients.
