micah2While working in the private sector, Micah Garten developed a desire to help those less fortunate than himself. He began volunteering with a number of charities while taking the Fundraising Management Course from Ryerson University. In 2010, he left the private sector and joined Multifaith Housing Initiative where he became the Manager of Communications and Fundraising, helping the organization and the donors with providing housing to low income households. While there he was in charge of increasing awareness about the organization and he successfully led a capital campaign team with the goal of providing housing for 40-60 individuals.
Micah’s role is to connect donors with the programs that they are passionate about and where their support can make the biggest impact in the lives of the community.
