Phelps Group and Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation are delighted to announce the appointment of Janet Turner as Chief Development Officer.
Janet left a career in radio and television news to raise funds for cancer, following the death of her mother, Beth, from breast cancer. Since that time, Janet has worked for numerous cancer organizations including the Canadian Cancer Society, London Health Sciences Foundation – Regional Cancer Program and Sunnybrook Foundation – Odette Cancer Centre.
Prior to joining Wellspring, Janet worked as a consultant for KCI Philanthropy, as Vice President of Development for Children’s Wish Foundation and most recently, as Director of Campaigns and Major Gifts for Holland Bloorview Foundation.
Janet is a popular speaker on fundraising and activity goals for major and planned giving officers, and her passion for the cancer cause has led her to Wellspring. We are delighted to welcome Janet to lead our philanthropy team in continued growth and success.
