Campaign Coordinator - Foundation

St. Thomas, ON

Campaign Coordinator

Full Time, Two-Year Contract, with the opportunity for renewal


Salary: $41,000- $47,500

Ensuring access to essential, life-saving care and equipment and excellence in patient care. That’s what empowers the STEGH Foundation team every day. Together, we support our Hospital through fundraising and help provide the heartfelt healthcare our incredible, tight-knit community deserves.

When our family, friends and neighbours need care, we believe it should be available close to home. That means we must count on our community to help support STEGH’s healthcare teams who are committed to delivering outstanding patient experiences and quality care. It is through the actions of these care teams, and in collaboration with Foundation stakeholders, that the Foundation can support and respond to patient needs in extraordinary ways.


The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation supports the delivery of healthcare excellence for individuals and families who live primarily within St. Thomas and Elgin County.

We are about to embark upon an $8 million Diagnostic Imaging fundraising campaign. The addition of magnetic resonance at STEGH will ensure our Hospital’s imaging department will be elevated to tertiary level capabilities, and patients and their families won’t have to travel beyond Elgin County to access diagnostic imaging services.

This is an exciting time to join the STEGH Foundation, as the Campaign Coordinator will help engage volunteers and donors to help us reach our fundraising goal within the next three years. This position will support the campaign team to ensure all involved are supported and working efficiently.
