PROJECTS

As agents of change, we’re excited about your projects. We’re especially inspired by your dreams for a better world. We build lasting relationships based on trust, confidence, understanding and respect. Here are just a few of the organizations that we have supported on the all-important journey of change:

Talent is arguably the greatest need of any nonprofit. When an opportunity arises, we know who to go to and what to look for. AGENTSC’s network of stellar friends and trusted colleagues provides an amazing roster of people to call upon. Passion, skill and commitment, not to mention experience and good humour are traits we measure. Camp Ooch’s amazing work made finding a remarkable fundraising leader even more delightful.

Over the years, Fleet Complete has chosen AGENTSC to activate the company’s annual commitment to giving. Through our partnership, we have facilitated philanthropic donations, seen hundreds of employees, friends and family members plant trees, construct buildings, and have fun while giving back to the community.

AGENTSC thinks and works globally. This commitment to international solutions makes us rather unique as a boutique outfit. Australian nonprofits are no nonsense, creative and pioneering in their approach to fundraising. No wonder why KARI chose AGENTSC. Our coaching and wise counsel led to a major gift case for support that instantly opened the door to support for Aboriginal kids and families.

Definitely our most ambitious project to date! AGENTSC’s creative associates morphed into the World Renew team, and effectively answered fundamental questions about the past, present and future philanthropic journey. Understanding the current footprint helped us cast an ambitious vision for the future that capitalizes on the core values and culture of this global NGO.

Mide Akerewusi, M.Sc. (Econ), CSR-P, CDEP

Founder and CEO

Nine times out of 10 Mide has a different take on things.

An inspired, energetic specialist with a uniquely diverse perspective, he has led major gift teams in a variety of the UK’s most successful charities, including the British Red Cross. Mide’s Canadian journey began when the YMCA of Greater Toronto sought him to be their Chief Development Officer.  His inspiration to establish AGENTSC, came after serving almost five years as Director of Leadership Philanthropy at Canada’s pioneering and award winning social innovation - Pathways to Education, where he led the leadership philanthropy strategy for the charity’s successful $180 million Graduation Nation campaign, leading to the rapid expansion of the program across Canada.

Mide has governance roles at the Association of Fundraising

Professionals (AFP) Toronto Chapter, and also serves on

the Board of Save The Mothers.

Mide provides a reliable trusted service that complements the passion of our company and our
employees. His commitment to impact, recognition and engagement has helped us build a
strong culture of giving back to our community.

Tony Lourakis
Founder and CEO, Fleet Complete

Mide is a leader in the charitable sector; he is well connected and knowledgeable and used his experience
to guide Food For The Poor Canada in its transition to the next stage of our charity's life. His breadth of
wisdom and calm thorough work provided the opportunity for us to transition well and effectively.

Samantha Mahfood
Executive Director, Food For The Poor Canada

Mide completely changed my thinking around approaching potential major gift prospects and
clearly outlined the barriers holding us back from our fundraising success. Mide is a fantastic
mentor and with his guidance we have been able to double our fundraising revenue and exceed
goals we didn’t think were possible. I would have no hesitation recommending Mide’s services
to any not for profit – he will make fundraising feel easy!

Mia Matheson
Manager – Marketing and Partnerships – KARI Australia

The AGENTSC team, under the leadership of Mide Akerewusi, did us a great service. After a
top-to-bottom analysis of World Renew's whole advancement effort, including donor relations,
church relations, communications, and volunteer areas their report had far-reaching implications
for more than just our advancement effort ...extending to even the way that we structure other
aspects of our organization. While our constituency is phenomenally supportive, far beyond
their numbers, it is clear that World Renew needs to adapt to the context of new philanthropic
trends and the desires of a broader cross-section of donors. The process is underway to
take-up the AGENTSC recommendations with enthusiasm.

Thomas E. McWhertor
Director of Constituency Relations, World Renew (Grand Rapids, MI/USA & Burlington, ON/Canada)
