Wendy Endsley currently serves as Charitable Giving Officer for Father Joe’s Villages/St. Vincent de Paul Village. Wendy has served as Director of Development for A Reason To Survive (ARTS), and exceeded revenue goals annually at both organizations.
Since 2000, Wendy has helped to secure nearly $20M in grants, major gifts and event proceeds. Although she no longer publicizes her business, Grant Writer Source (www.grantwritersource.com), Wendy continues to shepherd client inquiries to affiliate with Nonprofit Prosperity Solutions (nppsolutions.net) in an effort to ensure all levels of nonprofit organizations seeking help may find the support they need. Wendy worked for the San Diego Natural History Museum as Director of Foundation, Corporate and Government Relations for nearly five years (2009-2014), before leaving to join ARTS, and then ENF. Wendy’s 17-year career in fundraising grew from 10 years as an award-winning journalist (Society of Professional Journalists and the San Diego Press Club), where building relationships and storytelling proved to be a perfect foray into the world of philanthropic excellence.
