Meet the Team

We are a dedicated group of individuals empowering communities to answer the call of giving. As individuals with a collective heart for people, we are excited to help foster generosity in our communities - together.

For us, Auxilia isn’t just a platform or donation management software; it is our mission. Created by our team of like-minded professionals with over 20 years in the nonprofit industry, it is our mission to lend support to the champions in our cities – and around the world. It’s our goal to connect charitable organizations and generous individuals to empower knowledgeable decision-making, while strengthening relationships to encourage donations through our donor portal.

To accomplish these goals in our community through our donation management software, our staff needs to be committed to our mission, too. Each person within our organization remains committed, passionate and eager for new endeavors as we work toward our goals for Auxilia.

We are proud of our teammates and the daily contributions made to further our mission:
