About Cathy Mann

26 years in fundraising, thousands of students and millions of dollars raised for my clients later…

 and I have a thing or two to share about the inner workings of running a successful fundraising program.

Within Spark, I’ll share secrets from over 25 years of fundraising to help support and guide you in raising more money through this unprecedented time.

Develop the skills, professionalization and sophistication of the big fundraising shops, even if you don’t have a team of specialists.


I want you to feel like an expert, have the confidence to bring your organization along on the fundraising journey with you and ultimately, raise more money.

Fundraising can be overwhelming. You’ll get skills and knowledge in a diversity of disciplines all under the fundraising umbrella.

"Spark is a great way to network and get a feel for what’s going on in the fundraising world.”


“I’ve found out that a couple of people in my network are already in the group. So it’s allowed me to enhance some of the relationships I’ve built through fundraising.”

- Deb Thompson | Fundraising Professional


“In a world so full of information, where it all just comes at you, to have access to a quick set of useful information is really excellent.”


“To have somewhere to go to float ideas, to get feedback, to navigate the waters that are new to me, has been extremely helpful."

- Nikki Beaulieu | Manager of Fund Development at Kingston Interval House



“Cathy provides us the tools to address any of the challenges we have in a professional way."


“I love the mentorship that’s provided through Spark's programming. You address a lot of day-to-day challenges that many fundraisers face, especially those of us who are new in the sector.”
