I am thrilled to announce that effective August 10, 2015, I’m joining the team at Blakely Inc. as a Fundraising Strategist.
My time fundraising for my alma mater, Wilfrid Laurier University, has been amazing! I’ve made great friends in my colleagues; I’ve connected with incredible, generous, and inspiring donors; and I’ve felt challenged and excited by my work building Laurier’s mid-level giving program. It’s never easy to leave a job that has stimulated you, but when an opportunity comes along that excites you and feels right, you’ve gotta run and jump, even if you don’t know exactly what you’re jumping into.
Sometimes I feel like I have more passion than any one organization can handle, and that’s part of the reason I’m so excited to join Blakely. Working on the agency side will expose me to so many charities doing so much good, and to be able to impact that will be such a joy. I can’t wait!
www.whatgivesphilanthropy.com will continue as always, and I’m excited to have all sorts of new content to post as my days will be so different than they are now. I hope you enjoy coming along for the ride with me!
Thanks, as always, for reading!
