(November 12, 2021) Cindy Wagman began her nonprofit career as a fundraising manager in a women’s shelter. Since that time, she’s been Development Director for the Canadian Women’s Foundation, The Kensington Foundation, Rotman School of Management, and Campaign Director for the Hot Docs Film Festival. For the past six and a half years, she’s headed up her own consultancy, The Good Partnership, which focuses on developing the fundraising potential of small nonprofits. Cindy Wagman hosts The Small Nonprofit, Canada’s #1 podcast for charities and now she’s consolidated her ideas in a new book, Raise It! The Reluctant Fundraiser’s Guide to Raising Money without Selling your Soul. Cindy joins us today from her home in Toronto.
