Moira Dossetor has worked for 20 years in the philanthropic sector within both small and large institutions.

Equipped with a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Moira transitioned seamlessly from philosophy to philanthropy at York University, where she managed fundraising for the Centre for Jewish Studies as part of York’s $100 million National Campaign. Her passion for education then led her to The York School where, as Director of Development, she worked with volunteers and school leadership to build a robust culture of giving through the establishment of Annual Giving and Major Gifts Programs and the completion of a successful Capital Campaign. As Director of Development at the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario, Moira moved to the mental health sector and managed a diversified fund development portfolio. In this role, she worked with regional teams on building and maximizing local fundraising capacity and ensuring alignment of strategic fundraising goals across the province.

Before joining the Offord Group, Moira spent six and a half years developing and leading a team in the Office of Philanthropy and Alumnae Relations at The Bishop Strachan School. In her role as Executive Director, she worked alongside school leadership, and led her team in a $35 million campaign, the biggest in its history, from initial planning, quiet phase and Campaign Launch to a successful public phase.

Over the course of her career, Moira has built, led and managed successful teams, initiated fundraising programs to serve organizational priorities, developed fundraising bench strength by establishing the trust of organizational leadership and deepened long-lasting relationships with volunteers and donors.
