Member Spotlight: Whitney Brimfield
WHAT IS YOUR DAY JOB?
I am the founder and CEO of Spark Point Fundraising, which provides outsourced foundation relations and grant writing services AND broader fundraising strategy development for clients across the US and internationally.
WHY ARE YOU INTERESTED IN NGGC?
I joined because I care about the community and wanted to contribute in a meaningful way. However, it's been a great learning experience as well.
WHAT NONPROFIT OR CAUSE DO YOU CARE ABOUT?
I'm most passionate about ensuring that women have the best possible opportunities to advance their lives, their careers, and their personal ambitions. I see women as superior leaders and I think that they deserve significantly more attention, recognition, and opportunity than they currently have. I believe this especially for women of color.
HOW ARE YOU STAYING INSPIRED?
Right now, Spark Point is running a story telling campaign called #BlackWomenSparkChange that is keeping me engaged and excited about telling the amazing stories of Black women in the nonprofit sector. Learn more: https://www.spark-point.com/blackwomensparkchange/
