As the Founder and CEO of JS Daw & Associates, Jocelyne heads a practice that guides leading organizations in designing innovative and measurable community strategies, and partnerships that create shared value, build stand out brand identity, deepen meaningful community relationships and accelerate positive social impact.
Jocelyne believes that as society’s challenges become more complex and interconnected, fundraisers are being challenged to raise money through different vehicles and in many cases to do more than just raise money. She sees that leading fundraisers are seeking new approaches to support their organization’s mission and many are turning to cross-sector partnerships to pursue solutions and to benefit from the power of collaboration.
