Lacey Kempinski, CFRE, the founder and owner of Balanced Good. She is a graduate of McMaster University and Georgian College's Fundraising and Resource Development Program. She is a mission-driven fundraiser, with nearly 15 years of experience, fueled by a passion to make an impact for the cause she is championing.
After 10 years of working in-house as a major gift fundraiser, she jumped into consulting - quickly realizing she couldn't be the mom and professional she wanted to be in a traditional workforce.
As an entrepreneur and business owner, she is now focused on changing the way our sector supports parental leaves and working parents. She believes this is one important key to improving the social profit sector's burnout and turnover dilemma.
Most importantly, Lacey is a Mom to three children - 7, 5, and 3. When she's not working or playing LEGO you can find her hiking trails around her family's off-grid home near Parry Sound, Ontario.
