Anne’s diverse background includes many years in both the corporate and not-for-profit sector. During her years working in the community, first as a corporate funder, then with United Way, and finally at the Oakville Community Foundation, she recognized the importance of effective collaboration and working at a systems level. She has led research projects using data to determine community needs and effective solutions; Anne was responsible for building a number of cross-sector collaboratives that focused on a variety of issues including poverty, diversity, children’s and senior’s mental health, and the arts. She brings this expertise to Funders Together, where she is passionate about promoting the philanthropic community’s catalytic role in ending homelessness, working with government to create public-private partnerships, and advocating for funding and policies which end, rather than manage, homelessness.
Anne has served recently on the Board of Directors of Oakville Galleries, a contemporary art museum, and currently sits on the Advisory Board of the Siemer Institute for Family Stability. Anne has been active in the field of bereavement and infant/child loss, and has studied in Spain and France, as well as Seattle and San Diego, and has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Lethbridge, Alberta and a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Toronto.
Anne feels lucky to have the support of an amazing family and wonderful staff.
