Bespoke Non Profit Solutions is expanding its team to meet the increasing needs of Calgary’s charities and non-profit organizations. While this year has been challenging for everyone, it has been especially hard for organizations that rely on volunteers and community support. Bespoke Non Profit Solutions is responding to these unique times by welcoming additional writing, communications and management expertise to our ranks in order to better serve our current and future clients.

Bespoke Non Profit Solutions is a boutique agency where we work as a team united with every client. We listen to and strategize with our clients, immersing ourselves in each organization’s mission and vision in order to provide tailored guidance and effective fundraising solutions.

An important aspect of a successful fundraising campaign is the writing support we provide. To this end, we are welcoming a former award-winning journalist to our ranks. Alison Myers honed her craft as an emotive, witty and informative writer during her time reporting across Canada and abroad for CBC Radio. Through her subsequent experience with the fundraising team at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine and with various clients, she has developed a style capable of engaging her audience with a poignancy that meets the unique needs of the industry we serve.

Organized, focused and adaptable, Stephanie Washbrook joins Bespoke as our operations guru, with a goal of streamlining our systems and processes to ensure our team members are able dedicate more of their energy to client needs. Stephanie is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CA) who began her career auditing both not-for-profit companies and large financial services firms, eventually landing at Ernst & Young as a Learning & Development lead. Wearing her volunteer hat, Steph was admired by the parents and administration of Queen Elizabeth School for her project management prowess as Chair of the Parents Advisory Council.  Now, Stephanie’s expertise keeps Bespoke running efficiently and effectively as she handles business development, systems improvement, client management as well as finance and accounting.

With a multitude of platforms to navigate and high information turnover, Jo Sarpal joins Bespoke to enhance our offerings around digital marketing and content management. As founder of J.D.S. Solutions Ltd., Jo managed a broad range of communications and public affairs issues for public and private sector clients. Her expertise in strategic communications will serve to leverage visibility for our clients across all social media platforms. Jo’s ability to work with clients to assess team strengths offers them the opportunity to capitalize on internal talent while streamlining and improving their digital marketing efforts.

At Bespoke, our team of result-achieving, dedicated, energetic, social entrepreneurs approaches each client initiative with a multi-disciplinary team approach specializing in non-profit strategy, management and fundraising.
