The BNP Philanthropic Performance team is delighted to welcome new consultant Justin D. Nicolle to its Toronto office, where Justin can be counted on to support organizations in Ontario and Western Canada in developing their philanthropic and organizational strategies.

Justin is a Canadian, Australian, and a dedicated global citizen with over a decade of experience in fundraising and business development. After nationally managing a leadership network, he joined the charitable sector to help build peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns with Australia’s largest charity. He advanced to recruit, train and manage teams across three fundraising channels to raise funds for advocacy, humanitarian relief, and community development work. In 2018, he began managing philanthropy partnerships with corporates, foundations, and major donors that raised over $1m annually.

After starting his career overseas, Justin returned to Canada as a philanthropy advisor for Eastern and Atlantic Canada, with responsibilities that included helping the agency prepare for a capitol campaign and a major donor program. Also, Justin has consulted in the film industry and worked with Hollywood producers on managing investors, building strategic partnerships, and crowdfunding.

In joining BNP Philanthropic Performance, Justin looks forward to sharing his experience in philanthropic development and partnership‑building strategy with organizations and stakeholders. He enjoys working as part of a team, sharing on‑the‑ground experience with clients, and promoting what he calls the “joy of generosity”.

“With his significant experience in Australia, Justin is a fine addition to our multicultural, multigenerational team,” concludes Christian Bolduc. “We will be able to expand our work in Ontario and Western Canada to support even more organizations in developing their philanthropic and organizational strategies. Since last year, our team’s expertise has been complemented and enriched with the acquisition of BNP GOLDIE Canada. Our desire to serve organizations in all parts of the country gives us an opportunity to surround ourselves with people who are ever more inspiring and motivated to help others.”

Justin starts work with BNP Philanthropic Performance on December 6, 2021. He will be working at the Toronto office.
