Kat provided expertise and guidance to ensure my organization’s direct mail campaign was well developed and effective. She provided no-nonsense coaching in a direct, respectful manner. I would highly recommend Kat to roll out a major project, provide an objective evaluation of your fundraising program, or direction on how to advance your mission.

The process of applying for grants was new to me, but Kat was a wealth of information and guided me start to finish. With a tight deadline, Kat was patient, kind, and determined to help me complete everything needed in time. I can’t thank her enough!
Courtney Schulze, M. Ed. ABA
Founder & Program Director 2021, Northern Star Behaviour Services

Kat brings a ton of energy, passion, and experience to our team! We needed support in writing our annual report, and she delivered! We absolutely loved the innovative ideas she brought, such as the volunteer spotlight and a new legacy giving program. We are so happy with the end result that clearly demonstrates our story and impact over the previous year. This will serve as a template for years to come!
Chad Polito
Executive Director 2020, Dawson Boys & Girls Club – Verdun, QC

After operating for seven years on a wing, a prayer, and lots of pro bono services, Kat joined Making Strides’ team in 2019 as our first professional fund developer.  In learning about what we do, Kat said that she was drawn to our passion for the inner-city community, and this has certainly demonstrated itself throughout her work with us.  With boundless energy, Kat has transformed our wing and prayer into a tangible, workable plan with solid strategies, leads, and funding proposals that will ensure the future sustainability of Making Strides. We have been so benefited by Kat’s years of experience and ability to translate good intentions into concrete actions; this will in turn, no doubt, benefit one of Edmonton’s most vulnerable communities for years to come.

Kathleen, I believe has chosen a career in the not-for-profit sector as she arises each morning truly focusing on serving her new community. She has significantly changed the lives of so many Edmontonian’s, and I know that our city is blessed and better off for having her. Kathleen has faced the daunting challenge of starting her career from the ground up, calling Edmonton home for the past eight years. Uprooting her life and career halfway across the country is indeed a difficult task, and she has handled it gracefully. A deserving credit, Kathleen has been featured in AFP’s international magazine as female Canadian Fundraiser, an admirable accolade of recognition.

Mike Meadows

I had the pleasure of working with Kathleen at a very exciting time in the organization’s life. Kathleen was instrumental in securing the necessary funds that sustained the diversity of programs offered at Gilda’s Club. This was a particular challenge as the community was new and unknown at the time. Kathleen’s warmth and easy manner made her particular approachable to all – donors, funders, colleagues and members. In fact, it is Kathleen’s natural ease and charm that I remember most fondly. I learned a lot from her and still refer to many of her insights so many years later.
Romy Schnailberg

Kathleen has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known.  She is always positive and goes at everything she does with 100% effort and dedication.
Jill Didow

Kathleen worked with me to secure resources and create a winning proposal.  Her attention to detail and the ability to translate my thoughts and ideas into concrete action into a winning proposal within a very short time.  The good news is that we were successful in receiving the funding that we had requested for a period of three years for just over $300,000.
Kris Knutson

I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with Kathleen in her volunteer capacity of AFP 2008 Treasurer, whose mandate is to ensure that we all keep in line with our program budgets.  Additionally, Kathleen is in charge of the Scholarship and Bursaries portfolio.  She is an active member, and I believe she makes an excellent addition to our team of volunteer leadership.
Steve Baker
President 2008, Association of Fundraising Professionals Edmonton Chapter

We are just so impressed with Kathleen’s passion and dedication to helping smaller organizations that do not have the resources to hire a fundraiser on staff.  We had an opportunity to submit a funding proposal to the government but had no way to do it ourselves as we don’t have the time or the expertise on hand.  Within the span of one week, Kathleen met with members of CHHA-ED and created a great proposal for us in the amount of $95,000 within our budget and meeting the time sensitive deadline.  Her personalized service and professionalism makes it a pleasure to work with her.  We would certainly consider retaining her services again.
Marilyn Kingdon
President 2006, Canadian Hard of Hearing Association Edmonton Branch

I originally hired Kathleen as a staff member in 2005 where she managed the Children’s Miracle Network portfolio as a Development Account Manager. In addition to her vast background in fund development, Kathleen is a warm and caring individual who brings wealth of experience to an organization.  Now that she is working as a Fund Development Consultant, it was easy for me to give her a call when we needed someone on a short-term basis to work on our “Dialing for Dollars” fundraising initiatives. I would highly recommend Kathleen to work for any organization that needs help in fundraising.
Mary-Lou Hamilton
Chief Development Officer & General Manager 2006, Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation

Kathleen has been working with us for the last six months profiling our club members by writing articles in our monthly newsletter.  She is responsible for organizing meetings and interviewing our members and when need be, she even takes the photos for us!  Our members enjoy meeting with Kathleen and are impressed with her writing abilities.
Ilario Re

The grant writing workshop we offered through Pounce Support Services™ was extremely helpful to our community volunteers. Kat and Mirande worked directly with me to assess our needs and coordinate and deliver a workshop that provided top expertise in order to strengthen the capacity of our community leaders to write and apply for grants. We appreciated the tips, tricks, and follow-through post-event.
