Erin launched WAYMARK Community + Sport LLC and feels lucky to merge her passion for sports and partnerships to achieve the goals of WAYMARK’s clients while assisting those in the community and launching her own company. Erin has a background in event planning and fundraising for prestigious non-profits, professional sports teams, athletes and celebrities. With her experience as a fundraiser for a non-profit and a charitable process analyzer and donor, she has worked on both sides of the philanthropic community. These experiences have allowed her to create and strengthen partnerships between the two realms for mutually beneficial visibility and success.
In her time working for the Boston Bruins Foundation, Erin saw a need to assist professional athletes and teams align themselves with charities of interest to fulfill a personal desire of the athlete, while also financially or visibly assisting a charity. She began managing events for athletes from golf tournaments, casino nights, benefit concerts to bowling events and more. Her passion and client list grew until she was able to launch her company, WAYMARK Community + Sport LLC in December of 2016.
As a company, we pride ourselves on our passion for sports as well as our successful history connecting athletes, businesses and charities to one another to creating beneficial partnerships. We know firsthand the ability sports have to connect with many people while crossing age, gender, race and many other boundaries. From working with MLB, an NHL team on full-team events to being requested by individual players to create successful fundraisers that have a personal meaning to them, we have a wide range of experience. We strive to create events, programs and engagement opportunities that are seamless and unique to each client. We consistently work outside the box to help our clients and beneficiaries stand out in a sometimes saturated charitable environment where donors and participants are eager to support our causes and athletes.
Our eagerness, dedication, compassion, skill set and motivation make us the ideal hire. Each client and each year is a new, re-engaged partnership and we pride ourselves on understanding our clients goals from the inside out in order to not only fulfill a need but build a stronger network to benefit the work our client strives to achieve in the community.
Our deep connections, relationships in the sports community and history working side-by-side with clients allows us the opportunity to reach new heights of success in terms of fundraising, visibility and pride for each and every client.
Erin also volunteers her time with local organizations and has served on the Leadership Committee of the Friends Council for the Boys and Girls Club for the past 7 years.
Erin was nominated and won the title of “2011 Readers’ Choice BizBash Association/Nonprofit Planner of the Year.” She lives in Boston’s South End with her husband, Mike, and dog, Harry.
