Peter Gillies has been raising money to nourish passions for more than 30 years: as a volunteer in the arts community in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Wakefield, Quebec; as co-owner of two small businesses; as a project manager in Afghanistan and Pakistan writing successful grants for tens of millions of dollars from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA); and currently as a consultant to not-for-profits in western Quebec.
