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.
