David Love, CFRE

Godfather of Good

Agents of Good

David raised his first dollar for the environment in 1969. His current obsession is helping environmental and social justice organizations reap the benefit of the coming legacy tsunami.

Whenever he can, he works with his daughter’s direct response company, Agents of Good, where he is affectionately known as “The Godfather of Good.” He relishes working with these champions of donor-centered fundraising.

He worked at WWF-Canada for 20 years and he’s still there one day a week supporting their legacy program – a program he started in 1982. He learns more about legacy fundraising every day.

In 2013, his colleagues in the AFP Greater Toronto Chapter recognized his efforts by awarding him their lifetime achievement award.

Far from marking the end of David’s career, this inspiring recognition spurns him on to be a better fundraiser every day.

He does that by continuing to put donors first.
