Denis Boyda joins the GBGH Foundation team!
Denis Boyda comes to Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation with 15+ years of nonprofit experience, most recently from SickKids Foundation where he was the Associate Director of Finance. At SickKids Foundation, Denis co-lead the Finance department which involved the day to day financial management of the organization (Cash, investments, AP/AR), the annual budgeting process and the annual audit. He was also responsible for the organization’s compliance from a CRA point of view and also oversaw the gift processing department.
Working at SickKids Foundation has given Denis experience in a number of other areas, more specifically direct marketing, lottery, events, corporate/major giving and planned/legacy giving and, combined with his finance background, he’s looking forward to joining GBGHF and making a significant contribution to the organization’s growth.
During Denis’s time at SickKids Foundation, he was also the Chair of the Finance Officers Group (FOG) which was a group of finance leaders mainly from hospital foundation’s across Canada. The group was established to act as a sounding board and resource to finance leaders in the Hospital Foundation industry to share ideas and challenges in order to gain knowledge, experience and solutions from peers.
On a personal note, Denis is married to his wonderful wife, Julie, and has 2 crazy but very smart and adorable kids, Denis III & Kennedy. In his spare time, since Denis has to keep up to his energetic kids, he works out daily and cycles often.
