Paul Nazareth became a charitable gift planner in 2000, joining the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society, with the challenge of creating a gift planning program. Though he had no formal gift planning experience, Paul had been involved for several years in volunteer fundraising in his community and as a student at the University of Toronto. In his new role, Paul was thrust into the world of gift annuities, estate administration and donor relations, as one of the youngest full-time gift planners in Canada. Following three years at Scarboro Missions, Paul joined the University of Toronto as part of the central Gift Planning team; working with faculties, colleges and individual donors to create planned gifts and inspiring legacies for Canada ’s largest university. During his first years in the field, Paul was mentored by some of Canada ’s best gift planners and professional advisors as a member of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Canadian Charitable Annuity Association and the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. After attending the Banff course in gift planning, Paul took on a volunteer leadership role in the CAGP Greater Toronto Area educational programming committee in 2001 and then joined the membership committee in 2002. He became chair of membership in 2003. During his term, membership of the GTA Roundtable grew 50% in just three years. He is a member of the national CAGP membership committee and was also a board member with the self-issuing Annuity Association (CCAA) for two years. A great believer in the profession of gift planning, Paul works constantly to further the mission of the association to help Canadians make proper estate plans and legacies to their most cherished charities. A practicing Catholic and strong believer in community and civic involvement, Paul has volunteered for every candidate he has voted for municipally, provincially and federally since he has had the right to vote. A passionate (amateur) cook, Paul coordinated (as a volunteer) one of Toronto ’s “Out of the Cold” programs, feeding hundreds of Toronto’s homeless during the winter months from a church hall with private donations from fellow parishioners. Currently working for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, Paul is the manager of planned giving and major gifts. He helps parishioners create legacy and major gifts to the 230 local churches of the Archdiocese of Toronto (stretching from Toronto to Orillia, Oshawa to Oakville) and several charities contained within the regional structure of the Catholic Church.
