My name is Chandra Ingram, and I've been involved in non-profits and fundraising for most of my career. My work experience includes Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, USA; United Way/Centraide of Windsor-Essex County in Windsor, Ontario, Canada; United Way of Calgary & Area in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and SAIT Polytechnic in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I've worked in annual giving, direct mail, communications and training, corporate giving, major giving, and planned giving.
My philosophy is that any type of success depends on high-quality relationships. When an organization and its stakeholders think well of each other and base their interactions on mutual respect, all parties are positioned to flourish.
Successful fundraising occurs when everyone, from the Board of Directors to the receptionist, including all staff and volunteers, understand this philosophy and know how to execute it in their long range planning as well as their daily activities.
I find great joy in witnessing wonderful organizations flourish. If I can play a role in helping your organization pursue its mission, please let me know.
