Episode 4

Episode 4 of Tales From the Trenches Tuesdays features the one and only Barbara Crook. Barbara is a writer, mental health advocate, and philanthropist here in Ottawa. It honored me to have worked with Barbara almost twenty years ago when she was Chair of the Women’s Division for the Jewish Federation of Ottawa’s Annual Campaign.

Barbara, along with her husband Dan Greenberg, support many worthy endeavors through their family Foundation, The Danbe Foundation. I was lucky enough to get some time to chat with Barbara, who is a volunteer, donor and (reluctant) fundraiser. We discussed the power of gifts, as well as some mistakes that fundraisers have made regarding her support. We finish by discussing Barbara and Dan’s legacy.

The right gift at the right time can be more important than a big gift.
