Rachel works with philanthropists to plan their giving and support the organizations they care about. She also provides fundraising support tools to businesses, organizations and grassroots fundraising groups. Rachel’s primary focus is international giving — working with Canadian charities and Canadian donors who want to leverage their international support. The best part of her work is getting to know solutions-oriented initiatives that go to the core of complex problems, and she is most inspired by grassroots initiatives that “punch above their weight.” Before coming to Tides Canada, Rachel worked in the arts for over 25 years in many parts of Canada — as an administrator, artist manager, music distributor and festival organizer. She believes arts and culture are a great way to open the door to social change.

He sees the operational capacity provided by a shared administrative platform as a crucial ingredient in the success of modern, grassroots, social change movements.
