Winkler Group Expands Charlotte Office – Jennifer Morgan Joins Firm as Consultant

Jennifer Morgan began her career as a nonprofit development services and event planner and progressively advanced to prospect research, annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, and corporate and foundation relations.   

“I find true happiness in making the connections that provide joy for donors and success for organizations,” explains Jennifer. “Connecting an organization’s mission with a person’s individual passion is beyond words.”   

Augmenting her comprehensive knowledge of fundraising, Jennifer has worked on five capital campaigns. Most recently as director of philanthropy at the Sharon Towers community, she oversaw the donor database transition, established fundraising policies and procedures, and lead a capital campaign that surpassed its $6 million goal despite COVID-19 lockdowns and economic instability.  

“We’re thrilled to welcome someone with such extensive fundraising experience to our team,” states Jim Bush, Winkler Group president. “Her optimism and team approach will serve our clients well.”  

An active member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Jennifer serves on the Charlotte AFP NC Conference planning committee. She earned a B.A. from Salem College and an M.P.A. from West Virginia University. She earned a certificate in Nonprofit Leadership Essentials from The Allstate Foundation.
