BOARD OF DIRECTORS
JACQUELINE & NIC WAY
Jacqueline Way is the founder and volunteer Executive Director of 365give. She started 365give as a personal parenting project with her son Nic when he was just 3-years old. They made a commitment together to give every day for one year. After seeing the transformative impact, it had on their lives, they knew they had to share it with others.
Jacqueline has always been driven by a desire to make a difference in the world and inspire others to do the same. Through 365give, she and Nic have made it their mission to educate and inspire and empower individuals to adopt daily giving habits, no matter how small, to improve their own lives and the world around them.
With its focus on the power of small acts of giving, 365give has grown into a thriving community of givers from all walks of life. Jacqueline and Nic are proud to be at the forefront of this movement. Jacqueline continues to work tirelessly to spread the message of daily giving and its ability to create a happier, healthier world.

She is a founding Board Member and today is deeply invested in the 365give mission and vision.

Chantal is a firm believer that developing a giving habit not only benefits the world but also enhances one’s personal happiness and well-being.
“ I believe it is our role as educators to prepare children for the future.” Lindsay is a dedicated educator who is passionate about preparing children for the future. She has taught for 15 years and believes that this role is more critical now than ever, given the challenges that students face.

The challenge has transformed her teaching by breaking down the walls of the classroom and taking learning out into the world.

The resulting sense of pride and happiness among the students is contagious and has a far-reaching impact.

He believes that giving contributes to personal growth and increases happiness. As a member of the 365give team, he is enthusiastic about promoting this message and spreading kindness in the world.
