Job Description


We are seeking an outstanding new President & CEO to partner with our Board and donors as we transform healthcare in Calgary and throughout southern Alberta.

Reporting to the Board of the Trust, and working in close collaboration with Alberta Health Services (AHS) leadership, the President & CEO will be accountable for the overall leadership, executive management, and success of the Trust, and for ensuring its effective and efficient operation.  

The President & CEO will work with the Board to establish and achieve the strategic goals and objectives of the Trust, and provide visionary leadership to the Trust as it moves into a new funding model. This role will also provide innovative leadership and talent management to our professional staff. With oversight for the Trust’s fundraising success, the President & CEO will be responsible for building donor relationships in our community and ensuring the achievement of our financial objectives.

In order to optimize opportunities for success, the President & CEO will have a strong, productive, and positive relationship with AHS, and will work closely and meet regularly with the AHS’s leadership group. The new incumbent will build the Trust’s profile and brand, and will work collaboratively with the AHS leadership team to identify fundraising priorities. The President & CEO will also foster positive relationships and confidence between the Trust and our other community health partners and constituents, including our hospital and care sites, Universities, and other health and community care organizations. 



Calgary Health Trust serves as a catalyst that connects donor passion with treatment, education, and research priorities in the Calgary hospital and medical care community. As the fundraising arm of AHS in greater Calgary, the Trust raises and disburses philanthropic healthcare gifts and other funds across Calgary and the surrounding area.

The Trust was established in 1996 when the Province of Alberta restructured the healthcare system. Philanthropists involved with the Calgary Health Region, and several of Calgary’s hospital foundations, saw the need to coordinate the efforts of the existing healthcare foundations by creating one cohesive organization. Since then, the Trust has raised over $427 million for healthcare.

We transform healthcare in Alberta by funding state-of-the-art technology, innovative programs, research and education. The funds raised by the Trust benefit Foothills Medical Centre, Peter Lougheed Centre, Rockyview General Hospital, South Health Campus, many community health programs and 12 Carewest care centres in the Calgary community.

The Trust’s fundraising efforts are currently focused on three pillars:

  1. Developing world-class care.
  2. Impacting Albertans and their families.
  3. Improving the quality of life for those in our community.

Our over 30 dedicated professionals work closely with AHS and community partners to identify key priorities where philanthropic support will ensure excellence. In addition to our hospitals, health programs, and Carewest centres, our priority needs include:

  • Newborn Health
  • Emergency Pediatric Pod
  • Hemodialysis
  • Carewest: Close to Home Campaign
  • Gastroenterology and Endoscopy
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research & Wellness Clinic

Trust operations have been funded in part with the support of AHS. Now, the nature of our operations funding model is evolving away from the AHS-funded model, and is entering a new stage in our growth and development. We are seeking to move to a more engaged campaign model, and further our social enterprise options.

We are committed to building strong partnerships with donors, volunteers, and health professionals that are characterized by integrity, accountability, creativity, and results. We believe strongly in matching donor interests with healthcare priorities, ultimately making a difference and improving the quality of life for our community. We believe that every donor has a story, every gift has a vision, and every patient’s life can be changed.


Fundraising at Calgary Health Trust

In the 2017/18 fiscal year, the Trust provided $11.1 million to hospitals and community programs, research initiatives held at the University of Calgary, and a number of other partners who are aligned with our vision to transform healthcare in Alberta.

The Trust is grateful for the thousands of donors, contributors, event attendees, and lottery ticket buyers that support us every year. In fiscal 2017/18, our net revenue was over $26.9 million, which includes $16 million from individual and corporation donations. Net revenues from our lotteries were $8.2 million and from events were $3.2 million.

Our newest fundraising initiative is the “Newborns Need” campaign, now in development. This transformative approach to newborn health across the region seeks to raise $60 million, and has already raised over $34 million in gifts and pledges.


For more information see the following:


Looking forward, our strategic considerations for Fiscal 2019 – in addition to our ongoing committed activities and projects, include the following: 

  • Fiscal Sustainability: Focus on our current and future operations funding to ensure long term sustainability.
  • Broaden our Offerings and Fundraising: Including capacity building in our fundraising activities, such as: an ongoing Door to Door Campaign test; launching the Newborns Need Campaign, and investigating other new campaigns; mobile & staff giving kiosks; and giving clubs such as a Chair’s Circle.
  • Sharpen the CHT Brand to Enhance the Trust’s Profile: Through brand development, a stronger site presence, AHS Staff and Physician Engagement, and the building of a culture of philanthropy.
  • Develop and Acquire Talent: Ensure a strong team through staffing, Board and Council development, and support.



Passionate and driven to transform healthcare, the new President & CEO of the Trust will be a strong leader who inspires staff, volunteers, donors, and partners. Entrepreneurial and innovative, the new incumbent will be excited by big ideas and the opportunity to partner in building the brand of the Trust. The new incumbent will motivate our constituents to join us in empowering transformational change.

As an exceptional strategist who thrives in a complex and political environment, the President & CEO will have a robust leadership and organizational management track record, ideally developed in a health care or similarly intricate organization. The ideal candidate will set a focused direction for the Trust, with clear expectations and measurable metrics for volunteers and staff. The President and CEO will be caring and empathetic with experience supporting a team through change.

The ideal candidate will possess a natural inclination to collaboration and openness to adaptation and change. The successful candidate will develop and sustain strong collegial relationships with physicians, clinicians, and senior health administrators, encouraging their participation and assistance in the cultivation and stewardship of potential donors. The new incumbent will actively promote an internal culture of philanthropy.

Credible and authentic, the President & CEO will inspire trust and will bring a businesslike and respectful approach to working with Trust Board members, Fund Development Councils, and other volunteers. Perceptive and insightful, the ideal candidate will possess political savvy, and will understand the complex interplay between provincial, regional, and municipal politics. The ideal candidate’s unquestioned reputation and dedication to the community will be apparent in everything they do.

The President & CEO will display sensitivity to a wide variety of supporters, partners, and stakeholders with a donor-centric, relationship-building focus attuned to the nuances of health care in our community. In addition to developing relationships across the community, the successful candidate will be comfortable playing a lead role in the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of key donors. The President & CEO will actively develop profile and visibility in the media and with the public that benefits the Trust as “top of mind” for our community’s philanthropy. As an engaging and energetic individual, the ideal candidate will have exceptional communication and presentation skills, characterized with charisma and eloquence.
