Mariya (Maria) Yurukova, CEO, Charity Search Group

I have spent my entire career in fundraising and managed a variety of fundraising programs. I have had the privilege to raise more than $20 million for the organizations I have represented. And I have worked on gifts ranging in the millions to direct marketing campaigns for first time donors. My fundraising style is authentic, open, and strategic. This is also my style as a recruiter. I am committed to finding the best fit for organizations of all sizes and candidates of all skill levels and experience. I have a deep understanding of non-profit management and work extensively with boards and hiring managers to identify the types of candidates best positioned for success. My involvement with the fundraising profession has allowed me to build a large network of professionals across North America. I take the time to get to know each candidate and their career aspirations, to ensure the best possible cultural fit. My educational background includes a B.A. in Psychology and an MBA with a concentration in Marketing, both from Brock University. I am a Certified Fundraising Executive, a member of AFP, CCAE, CASE, and I enjoy presenting at conferences and mentoring fundraisers.
