Manager, Major and Planned Gifts
Ph: 705-726-9622 x 450
Susan has worked in the social service field for over 20 years. In her current role as the Manager of Major and Planned Gifts at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka, Susan is responsible for the direction of the Annual Campaign, and the investment of Major and Planned gifts. Susan advises donors of new programs and important opportunities available to collaboratively build healthy communities both now and in the future.
Previous to joining the Y, Susan worked on the front lines in a Homeless Shelter, educating people about the services within their communities and fostering community partnerships to ensure comprehensive services were available to meet the needs of individuals experiencing a housing crisis. Susan also worked as the Manager of Resource Development for the United Way of Greater Simcoe County, Oakville and the Peel Region. During her time at the United Way, her goal was to bring people together to improve lives and strengthen neighbourhoods by engaging individuals and corporations to donate collectively and provide a social service safety net for anyone in crisis.
Susan’s motivation for the work that she does is to give people the tools and support they need to carry on with dignity, during times of crisis.
Susan lives with her husband and one of four sons in in Angus, Ontario.
