Carly O’Rourke is Project Somos’ Fund Development Manager, working out of Vancouver, BC. Carly comes to us as a donation herself – her part-time position is sponsored by the SpencerCreo Foundation, one of our earliest and biggest supporters. For the previous two years, Carly has been writing grants for Project Somos, helping to organize our annual Grand Fiesta gala, and spent time on-site in Guatemala. During that time, she also worked for Social Venture Partners Vancouver as a Communications Coordinator.
It is an incredible boon to Project Somos to have Carly’s time dedicated to fundraising on-the-ground in Vancouver and beyond, connecting us to new donors and providing exceptional stewardship to all of our incredible supporters. Carly enthuses, “I share the same contagious passion for Project Somos as our supporters, and I’m grateful and eager for the opportunity to put my energy into the Village’s long-term sustainability.”
