Sasha Carter is joining the Okanagan College Foundation team as its new Development Officer, Planned Giving.
With more than five years’ experience working in nonprofit planned giving and 17 years in the insurance industry, Carter blends passion and financial acumen to support donors in planning their legacy.
"What I love about my work is that I get to see the best in people," says Carter. "I help them facilitate their wishes to help others."
The power of education and supporting one another are family values Carter was raised on. Her mother was an elementary school principal and Carter holds a Bachelor of Education. Born on a third-generation farm in Manitoba, Carter's beloved family barn was built by the community over a two-week period.
"It wasn't called philanthropy but we helped one another. My philosophy of philanthropy is just that, it's an opportunity to care for one another."
Carter is a mom to two young boys and is an avid competitive curler. She has competed on the provincial, national and international stage; capturing the title of World Champion in both 1995 and 2007.
