Sonya Swiridjuk, CFRE

Sonya got her start in fundraising with her youth bowling league in Winnipeg, convincing her dad to make a “major gift investment” and buy her ‘lot’ of chocolate (after most of it had already been eaten)! These days, Sonya’s fundraising activities and copywriting convince people to invest in causes to create change. Her experience spans 26 years working in and for charities of all sizes, including strategy, creative, execution and data analysis. She still can’t resist boxes of chocolate sold for clubs and schools.
