The “About” section is always the most difficult to write.
Here’s the thing: I’m not afraid of using the F word. Yes, I use it a lot.
That’s right, I’m a Fundraiser!
Been raising funds for numerous organizations for the past 15 years locally, nationally and internationally. I’ve done everything from donor acquisition to major gifts to planned giving (more commonly known as legacies). I’ve also done a lot of communications, strategic planning, board development and everything in between.
I teach, publish articles and even authored the Small Shop Fundraising chapter in Excellence in Fundraising in Canada, Volume 2. I present at conferences on the topics of ethics and legacy giving (my true passions).
You can read more about me on my LinkedIn profile but the most important thing is that I love to travel, try new foods and explore new cultures. This blog is all about bringing together my passion for philanthropy, travelling and exploring this great planet of ours.
