The Queen of Fundraising: Alex Goodwin

Episode Summary

In our second episode, we talk about the growth of golf and how it can help your organization raise money.

Finally, we go over some hidden fundraising gems within SportsEngine HQ and GoMotion.

Episode Notes

Welcome back dear listener to our second episode - joining us on the pod today is Alex Goodwin, who we have dubbed the Queen of Fundraising. Alex is currently the Fundraising Coordinator and a Board Member at St. Francis Youth Hockey. When she's not raising money and coordinating fundraising events for her hockey association she is helping to raise money and provide grants to charitable organizations as a Foundation Manager at Deluxe. 

Alex's professional and volunteer aptitude in fundraising is exceptional and incredibly insightful. She's built a tradition in her town that she hopes the organization can continue for years to come. It also has inspired Marie and Simon to travel up north and check out the event for themselves. 

If you are looking to uncover some tips and tricks of the fundraising trade, this episode is for you.
