Director of Major Gifts and Corporate Relations, Siloam Mission

Judy Richichi spent much of her youth growing up on the streets under the child welfare system, so it's no surprise that she now dedicates her life to working with Winnipeg's most marginalized citizens.

After serving as Siloam Mission's Director of Finance and Development, Judy stepped into her current role as Director of Major Gifts and Corporate Relations in 2014. Serving for over nine years, her passion to help the city's less fortunate grows more each day, and she is excited about sharing the vision of Siloam to all of Winnipeg's compassionate.

Siloam Mission is one of Winnipeg's biggest organizations working with the homeless population and helping them transition off the streets. Every year, it relies on thousands of donors to meet their $8 million budget and Judy is in charge of ensuring the budget is met and the Mission has all the resources it needs to operate 24 hours a day/365 days a year. No small task.

On top of that, Judy along with a team of volunteers and staff are working on a capital campaign to raise $17 million to help expand the frontline services centre. No one has to stay outside in the cold while waiting for a meal or a bed and other essential services. "It's the very least we can do as Canadians to ensure that no one has to be outside at 40 below!"

Judy received her Business Administration diploma from Red River College with a major in accounting and a minor in marketing. She has four beautiful children and has been married for 31 years. She feels blessed to be using her education and experience in making a difference for Winnipeg's inner city. She was recently awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award for her contributions towards Winnipeg's Community.
