Fundraising Objects

Emma Lewzey


I'm the founder and lead consultant at Blue Sky Philanthropy, and have 20+ years experience raising over $100M across the arts, education, health and human services sectors. I work with non-profits to increase their revenue and exceed their fundraising goals by helping them raise more 5, 6 and 7-figure donations.

A Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) since 2009, I specialize in major and leadership giving, and also have extensive experience in direct marketing, monthly giving, face-to-face fundraising, planned giving, and donor retention and stewardship.

In addition to my fundraising expertise, I have 12+ years experience working on non-profit senior management teams, and have core competencies in strategic planning, board governance, coaching and team building, and overall organizational development.

Select clients of Blue Sky Philanthropy include the Arthritis Society of Canada, Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, Dying with Dignity Canada, Food Banks Canada, Frontier College, Rainbow Railroad, Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Toronto Arts Foundation, Toronto People With AIDS Foundation, York University, and YWCA Toronto.
