Corrie is a compassionate and enthusiastic fundraising professional with a strong history of success across the social sector. She is passionate about building strong communities.
After completing her post secondary education at Grant MacEwan in Edmonton, Corrie embarked on a career working with children and families. She took on front line, leadership and fundraising roles in children’s programs, social services, women’s shelters, health care, government, schools, colleges, national and community based organizations. The common thread is her drive to ensure people have access to the necessary resources to build safe and happy lives.
Corrie has a keen understanding of the varied capacities and goals of the not for profit sector from her perspective from small organizations such as Sylvan Lake Community Partners and large organizations such as Alberta Health Services at David Thompson Health Trust. She has provided leadership and guidance to multiple organizations, helping them exceed their fundraising goals through major gifts, workplace campaigns, events, annual giving campaigns and legacy giving programs. She is very passionate about donor stewardship and organizational transparency.
Corrie is also an experienced adult educator, board facilitator, program developer, community facilitator and strategic planner. She has worked with and been a part of multiple Boards such as The Loan Circle and Central Alberta Women’s Shelter, and Committees such as the United Way National Committee for Donor Stewardship. Corrie helped to establish locally-based Community Gardens, Compassion Funds and Women’s Wellness Retreats which remain strong many years later.
An AFP member since 2009, Corrie is currently active with the AFP Edmonton and Area Chapter.
