Introducing Christine Ward.
Fundraising communication is its own special brand of writing and one that I've been earning a living at since 1991.
First at a hospital and then an Ontario university, I learned how to tell the stories that inspire people to give. Even during years spent as a fundraiser and director of development at the University of Calgary, I never strayed far from the keyboard. In 1999, I was lucky to merge both passions into Ward Development Communications.
The result? A one-of-a-kind business with a history of support of multi-million dollar fundraising campaigns and a client list that includes some of Canada's top charities. Much more than a writer, I have a knack for asking the right questions, helping to build winning strategies, and turning prospects into donors.
The best measure of success, though, is the long list of fundraisers who call upon me time and time again and deliver the finest compliment I know — referrals.
