HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME…
A fundraising consultant, philanthropist and a mom of 4. Life for me is more than a series of incidents that happen to you. It’s a beautiful experience that can be made EVEN more meaningful with careful, deliberate and thoughtful action.
Going from a frustrated stay at home mom to a professional fundraiser who raised $1.8 MILLION in one night (overseeing a team of 200 volunteers) didn’t happen by accident. It was my CHOICE, my way of giving back to the world, and my vehicle of personal & professional contentment.
Though I never in my wildest dreams thought about joining the nonprofit world and volunteering for such BIG causes, I always had this urge to do something constructive, something significant.
I had no idea.
Then one day, all the way back in 1994, me and my friend were invited to chair our children’s upcoming Catholic School Annual Fundraiser Silent Auction Dinner Dance.
Now, usually it would be a small event of 300, but this time we were told to plan an event for 800+ people as it was their Jubilee year and the alumni was invited as well.
The previous average fundraiser never went beyond $150K, but this time around, we were able to bring in $300K+ in revenue (DOUBLED the amount) that left the school administration in happy tears.
Since then, I’ve never looked back.
20 years, being a part of a billion dollar campaign and holding a Chief Development Officer post at an award-winning nonprofit later, I’m here to help YOU create an impact by fully supporting the causes you believe in.
