Suzanne Wilcox has experience working in both the non-profit and corporate settings. She’s been around NetGain since 1997 and enjoys the fresh approach that the firm takes with each and every client.
After graduating from Princeton University, Suzanne worked in Marketing and Development at several US arts organizations, including the American Dance Festival and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. She earned a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School before working in research, project management, and client relations for Arts & Communications.
She was then recruited by Air Canada where she worked as Manager, Market Development before moving to the newly independent Aeroplan in 2001 managing the successful CIBC Aerogold VISA and Diners Club credit card programs.
Now a freelance consultant, Suzanne enjoys getting to know a variety of clients, helping them with Strategic Planning and Fundraising. She recently spent three years working with Junior Achievement of Central Ontario, increasing individual giving to the organization 134% in that time. She was critical in securing a $500,000 gift to JACO, the largest single gift ever to the organization. Projects completed with NetGain include compiling and writing the Cultural Spaces grant for Museum of Contemporary Art_Toronto_Canada, creating and soliciting sponsorships for Centennial College Culture & Heritage Institute, and working on quantitative and qualitative studies for the Economic Impact Committee of the Intergovernmental Roundtable of Arts Funders and Foundations. She relishes research and proposal writing for individual, corporate, government and foundation donor audiences.
When not working, Suzanne attempts to keep up with her two daughters while tending the weeds in her “garden”.
