Laura McLean, Grants Coordinator

Laura McLeanLaura has more than eight years of experience working in communications, marketing and fundraising for the not-for-profit sector, and before that, she spent several grueling years planting trees in the wilds of northern Ontario and southern BC.

She moved with her family to Canmore from Toronto in search of blue skies and high peaks, and she is absolutely ecstatic to be working at Y2Y and helping to achieve this collective vision to keep these beautiful landscapes protected and connected.

Laura believes the root of all fundraising is in storytelling, and she is excited to share stories about Y2Y’s vital efforts in conservation. Previously, she worked at Canmore artsPlace, where she focused on community engagement, outreach, and fundraising, and was instrumental in setting up the organization’s communications, donor relations, grants and corporate gifting platform.

Laura has a bachelor of Fine Arts from York University, and a Corporate Communications and Public Relations Post-Graduate certificate from Centennial College. She is so pleased to be able to focus these skills on conservation.
