Overview

Each and every one of Tapestry’s clients (and prospective future clients) is a mission-driven organization that is tackling a real need in their community. They know what needs to be done and how to do it. They have a compelling vision or history, or both. And they have a dream project – they just aren’t sure about how to finance it. That’s where Tapestry comes in. We help them to evaluate their options and we only recommend using a Community Bond where it makes sense.

Once a client has decided that they will raise a community bond, they want to get the campaign going, fast. Our team rolls up our sleeves and works with them to design and structure every aspect of the campaign, to ensure its success. While every successful campaign shares a lot of common building blocks, each is also custom-tailored to the unique needs of the issuing organization.

In this role, you will lead our clients all the way through our Tapestry process from inception through to successful completion. You will develop creative and thorough campaign plans and strategies, coach the client team, show them how to organize public events, ensure they have effective promotional outreach activities and generally guide them on how best to enable their supporters to make that decision to invest.

Working closely with the Tapestry Investment Manager, you will be responsible for building trust with client teams.

About Tapestry Community Capital

Launched in May 2018, Tapestry Community Capital was created to help community organizations across Canada to raise the required capital to finance their dream projects.

We believe deeply in the principle of community ownership of community assets. Each and every citizen or resident can be a ‘co-owner’ in their local project, by investing in a Community Bond issued by their local community organization. This inclusive model has been successfully adopted across diverse social sectors- from affordable housing to co- working spaces, from arts & culture to renewable energy, from sports clubs to assisted living and to sustainable food supply.

We have assembled a top-notch Tapestry team – one that is built upon a set of core competencies gained from 13 successful Community Bond campaigns conducted over the past decade. We offer our skills and expertise on a fee-for-service basis, ranging from early feasibility & planning through to full execution of a successful bond campaign. After the campaign, we provide ongoing investor management services and financial reporting to support our clients throughout the lifecycle of their bonds through to maturity.

And we are growing, again! Fresh off our most recent client launch, Tapestry is seeking to add to our team and to expand our reach across Ontario and then across Canada. Our vision is to elevate Community Bonds into the mainstream of community funding, becoming ‘the new norm’ – and we need your skills, your expertise and your enthusiasm to make that happen.
