The Alex

The Alexandra Community Health Centre (The Alex) is a crucial resource to Calgary’s most vulnerable citizens in need of help and support. Health is at the heart of what we do, and what makes us so special is that we provide wrap-around services: primary health care along with multidisciplinary social services, with everyone working closely together.

With five decades of experience innovating and working in the community, The Alex has a reputation for tackling tough health and social issues by walking alongside people on their journey from crisis to wellness, and from challenge to change.

Using a patient and client-centred, multi-disciplinary model of care, The Alex offers the right care, to the right client, by the right professional at the right time, in the right place, for the right cost.   Because we know it all adds up.

Our core purpose is to improve quality of life through accessible and integrated health, housing, and social services. The Alex envisions a healthy and caring community where every person is valued and can thrive.

Our community of supporters is wide, encompassing all levels of government, individual and corporate donors, foundations, and other contributors.

Building on our reputation and exceptional client service, we now have an exciting opportunity for an experienced fundraiser to build a robust and professionalized fundraising program that matches the sophistication and depth of our service.

The Director, Fund Development, is that opportunity. Leading a team of five, and working closely with senior leadership and program staff across The Alex, this is a compelling opportunity for a fundraising generalist keen to strengthen a developing program in an established organization and:

  • Build a robust and effective fundraising program from a solid foundation;
  • Leverage The Alex’s incredible diversity of programs;
  • With so many stories to tell, move us from a “best-kept-secret” to top of mind for donors;
  • Enable their own passion for community engagement and impact;
  • Make an incredible and tangible difference in the lives of Calgary’s most vulnerable.
