Welcome to this web site ... I hope you'll take a few moments to explore!

Check the menu on your left and find a variety of resources to increase your effectiveness as a leader in the charitable sector. Perhaps you are looking for a consultant to help with Strategic Planning or maybe your Board isn't engaged in Fundraising as much as you'd hoped? You're not alone!

I will bring a fresh perspective to your organization. As a Certified FundRaising Executive (CFRE) with expertise in Governance, I can help strengthen your leadership team and increase your revenues.

Remember, the wheel doesn't always need reinvention ...refer to "Publications" and "Favourite Links" for shortcuts and some free advice.

My Motto

Don't start vast projects with half vast ideas!

My Approach

The purpose of Elderstone Resource Development is to help the leaders of registered charities manage effectively in a changing and challenging environment. As an adult educator, facilitator and coach, with expertise in Strategic Governance, Fundraising and Marketing, I will strengthen your board and senior management team. Together, we will create vast ideas!

Please explore this site and contact me to determine how I can help.

I will work within your budget to provide practical tools that are easily applied and peppered with a healthy sense of humour. I look forward to hearing from you!
