Akua Schatz

Associate Director, Community Giving

David Suzuki Foundation

Akua’s raison d’être is to provide donors with an opportunity to make meaningful change happen though giving. In 2010, when the David Suzuki Foundation made a decision to reinvest in monthly giving, she led a series of initiatives that grew the donor base from 8,000 to 12,000 – an increase of 50%. As part of her strategy she developed an annual online campaign that brings in almost 1,000 donors annually.
