Marie Miller – President & Secretary
Marie has been fundraising in Kingston for almost 19 years (over 12 at Queen’s University; the most recent six and a half at St. Lawrence College). Her fundraising career began as the Development Officer for Queen’s Principal and VP (Advancement). She was the Major Gift Officer for the $20+
million Queen’s mini campaign that raised funds to develop new outdoor playing fields and refurbish Richardson Stadium. Marie served one year as a Stewardship Officer, and her final two years at Queen’s as a Gift Planning Officer.
Shortly after Marie began her career as the Senior Development Officer at St. Lawrence College (SLC), the Uncommon Campaign was launched, which raised more money than ever in the history of the College in support of students. She continues to have great success in securing significant gifts, often from first-time donors.
Marie is known for her ability to build mutually rewarding relationships and her natural stewardship skills. She is a Charter member of the AFP of South Eastern Ontario Chapter, served as the Program Chair and Co-Chair of one of the first National Philanthropy Day events, most recently as Secretary and now President. She is also a member of the Rotary Club of Kingston, serving as a Team Lead as well as a member of the Community Grants Committee and Fellowship Committee.
