Sarah Bollozos | Association of Fundraising Professionals - Greater Vancouver Chapter

Sarah Bollozos

VP IDEA

Director, Major Gifts & Campaigns, Western Canada, Canadian Red Cross

Sarah is looking forward to bringing her experience from the Red Cross and abroad to the AFP Vancouver Board and the Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Access (IDEA) portfolio. At the Canadian Red Cross (CRC), Sarah leads a team of Major Gift professionals from across Canada. For Sarah, fundraising is about discovering how people’s passions and philanthropic goals align with the organization’s mission. When this partnership forms and deepens, it can help bring about transformational change at the individual, community, or global scale.

Working at the CRC brings together Sarah’s background in international development and relationship fundraising. Prior to joining the CRC, Sarah was the Director of Major Gifts, in the Faculty of Education at SFU, and before that she worked abroad for various international development agencies in Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uganda. Sarah holds a Master of Science in International Relations from the London School of Economics, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science & Applied Studies from the University of Waterloo.
