ONE THING IS FOR SURE, CHANGE IS INEVITABLE!
I love being a professional fundraiser!
I also loved working in commercial real estate and being an investment advisor too, but when you are able to combine your love of helping others with your interest in finance/business, it really is the best of two worlds!
So much has happened in almost 12 years of being a professional fundraiser. I worked as an employee for three important nonprofit organizations including: The YWCA of Calgary, Canada West Foundation, and Spinal Cord Injury Alberta (formerly the Canadian Paraplegic Association (CPA) (Alberta)).
I started my own professional fundraising business 4 years ago, Rave Results Inc., and have had the pleasure of working with some really great nonprofit organizations including: the Epilepsy Association of Calgary, Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary (AFCC), Disabled Sailing Association of Calgary (DSA-Alberta), North Rocky View Community Links Society (Community Links), Airdrie Koinonia Christian School (AKCS), Seniors Secret Service, Airdrie Public Library, Flying Doctors of Canada, & McMan Youth Family and Community Services.
In addition, I attained my Certified Fundraising Executive designation (CFRE) which I know will be a great asset to both my clients and knowledge of fundraising.
I have put together a wealth of marketing materials for my business including: my company web site, Twitter, Facebook, and Google +, all designed to assist the marketing efforts of my business.
Just lately I have moved my web site to a WordPress design and it has allowed me the ability to have people sign up for my Blog on my web site. Since sending an email previously to all my subscribers regarding the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), I have a confirmed list of people and emails that would like to receive my monthly e-newsletter.
Therefore, please go to my Blog page on my web site and sign up your email to receive my Blog posts directly from my web site after I do my posts, and when you receive this email notification to please confirm your subscription.
Thank you for doing this so you will receive my information on a regular basis.
I look forward to staying in touch with you for many years to come.
Happy New Year,
Mitchell Ravvin, BComm, PFPC, CFRE
