I am thrilled to officially announce that effective January 20th, I will be starting a new job at my alma mater, Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. You may have noticed over the past two years that I love to write about Laurier. I soaked up the Laurier experience as a student, and got my start in fundraising there, so my passion for the school knows no bounds! If you can’t tell, I’m so excited for the opportunity!!!
That being said, it’s always bittersweet to leave such an excellent working experience as Trinity College School has been for me. I’ve learned so much, and worked with such incredible colleagues and alumni. Stay tuned for a “goodbye” post coming up on my blog.
All of these big changes in my life won’t change much about www.whatgivesphilanthropy.com though. The posts will continue, and likely reinvigorated with new content based on my new portfolio (mid-level gifts, surprise, surprise…). Hopefully I can get a few new guest bloggers on board as well from the Waterloo and Laurier communities.
#maevesmeetup will continue as well! Although I won’t be holding socials for fundraisers in Toronto, my fellow fundraiser – and sister! – Arundel Gibson will be taking this event on. Click here to see the details for the inaugural #arundelafterwork coming up on Thursday, January 23, 2014 (and stay tuned to see whether I can bring #maevesmeetup to Waterloo!)
2014 is looking to be a great year for me and www.whatgivesphilanthropy.com. Stay tuned for more great content, inspiring guest bloggers, and my attempts to put the “fun” in fundraising!
