Kimberley MacKenzie, CFRE, Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Thank you for your interest in my story.
I discovered this career when I was volunteering for a charity I loved. I spent the first fifteen years building great organizations either as an executive director or director of fundraising. I loved it.
I built a very successful consulting business which I loved for six years. I have helped loads of charities transform their operations, improve their governance structure, shift to a philanthropic culture and of course raise millions of dollars to make the world be a better place for all of us.
The pause of 2020 provided an opportunity to rediscover my passion for building community, bringing people together, having conversations, helping them feel be as successful as they can possibly be.
I want people who are in positions of fundraising leadership in the charitable sector to feel valued, appreciated, understood and supported. When that happens it is MAGIC!
Most problems in the charitable sector are cultural. I know first hand when an organization changes their culture they change their results. This usually starts by helping everyone understand what it takes to build a robust, diverse revenue program. That is the secret sauce to GROWTH.
I want you to love your job again and I would love for people to stay in their jobs longer so they can have a greater impact. Like I do now.
The Intersection is a social enterprise dedicated to helping charities be successful and the people who work in them live healthy happy lives.
We put purpose above revenue because we belief when you live with purpose, money follows.
We believe in radical collaboration for greater good. We are stronger together. We offer some consultation services to help when needed and an awesome referral network to make good matches for most fundraising tactics.
Thank you again for taking the time to learn my story. I would love to hear your story.
Book some time for a virtual cup of tea together. Who knows what we might be able to do together.
Yours in service, growth and community,
