LKA is thrilled to welcome Mary Toropov as its newest Senior Strategist.
Based in Boston, Mary has more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit fundraising. Her career began at WGBH in Boston, where she led membership, mid-level giving, and a sustainer program that became an early model for public media stations nationwide. While at WGBH, she won numerous awards from PBS for development, cultivation, stewardship, and innovation.
Mary has also worked as Director of Individual Giving for the Boston Children’s Chorus and recently spent six years as an account director for a consulting agency, where she developed fundraising strategy and direct marketing programs for numerous nonprofit organizations.
Mary serves on the board of the Plymouth Philharmonic, and has previously served on the boards of other organizations including public libraries, churches, and theater groups.
She is passionate about travel and, as a Certified International Tour Manager, loves planning trips to Ireland and Scotland, and leading tours of New York, Washington D.C., and Boston’s Freedom Trail.
When she’s not hard at work, you can find her singing with choral groups, doing needlework, or combing the beach in front of her home on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts.
