Global’s Role: prospect research, campaign counsel, Board and fundraising training, prospect identification and qualification counsel, act as Interim VP Advancement/Interim AVP Advancement, act as Interim Executive Director/CEO of Thompson Rivers University Foundation.

“I think Global Philanthropic did an awesome job stepping us back from the campaign launch, refocusing the team and resetting the campaign launch. They looked at gaps in the program and in operations, developed solutions that I think were sensible, highly effective, and respectful to the Advancement Team and TRU, especially given the circumstances. Global got us back to a spot where we could launch it, they added potential donors to our prospect list, they assisted in the search for a new VP External Relations, and they helped to make transition to new leadership absolutely flawless. TRU is better for having worked with Global Philanthropic Canada.”

Global was with us the whole way. They helped us initiate a chart of standards.

Global really did help us think bigger.”
