I’m Ligia. I have been fundraising for numerous Canadian organizations for nearly 20 years locally, nationally and internationally. I’ve done everything from donor acquisition to major gifts to planned giving (more commonly known as legacies). I’ve also done a lot of communications, strategic planning, board development and everything in between.

One of my biggest passions is building the capacity of nonprofits by teaching, coaching, mentoring and presenting at conferences. Did I mention contributed to a book? I authored the Small Shop Fundraising chapter in Excellence in Fundraising in Canada, Volume 2. I also regularly contribute to the AFP’s newsletter, Advancing Philanthropy.

When I’m not geeking out on legacy or fundraising, you will find me wither planning my next trip, cooking or knitting.
