Creating Vision - Connecting Resources - Achieving Goals

CANFUND


Fundraising is not about raising funds, 

it is about raising like minded partners. 

My Background

Hello there, and welcome to Canfund. My name is Brenda Norman, and it is a pleasure to get acquainted here. From my earliest memory, I recall lending support to help make good things happen with others. As a seasoned fundraiser and community development leader, I have successfully engaged partners, not for profits, businesses, government, volunteers, and every day folks to come together, to be on purpose, and explore vision towards achieving fundraising goals. I know how to access the necessary resources. There is no cookie cutter approach to fundraising and community building. Likewise, client's values, motivation, and mission to creating common good, are unique. Canfund has a creative approach that supports your goals to fundraise in a manner that is right for your organization.
