Terrance M. Slobodian
VP, Fund Development and Communications
Terry has been serving as VP, Fund Development and Communications for Christian Children’s Fund of Canada since spring 2015. He is the senior executive responsible for all domestic marketing, fund development, communications and public-relations strategies and operations.
He is also the executive lead on three strategic priorities — brand revitalization, digital transformation and diversifying our revenue streams to increase our social impact.
Terry left a successful accounting management career with a Fortune 500 company to apply his skills to make an impact on the lives of people and communities. A Time magazine cover photo of a hungry child in India cemented his commitment to vulnerable children and families around the world. During his career he has held senior executive positions in the university, hospital and health sectors.
the VP has eight years of international child-development experience, living and working in Bratislava, Slovakia, Moscow and Geneva. While living abroad in Eastern Europe, he founded an non-governmental organization (NGO) that continues to provide thousands of underprivileged inner-city youth with the opportunity to experience the joy of sport. Terry is also a pioneer in micro-enterprise development, having helped establish an NGO to provide loans, training and mentorship to some of Eastern Europe’s earliest entrepreneurs.
Terry is an Alumni of Distinction of the University of Western Ontario (now Western University) with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics; he has almost completed a Master in Business Administration from the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University.
Terry and his wife, Wanda, are parents to five grown children, grandparents to one grandchild and guardians to Hogan, the family dog.
