Cambia Development Foundation is a private family foundation supported by me (Lina Bowden) and my husband Chris.
I am committed to creating a vibrant and caring community, through my work in social innovation, social enterprise and social finance. I have been bringing community organizations together to create a new collective called VERGE - a social finance intermediary for London and area. I contribute my time as well to Pillar Nonprofit Network and the social innovation shared space imitative, the Impact Loan Program hosted by Goodwill, London Community Foundation Social Finance Committee, the Ontario Social Economy Roundtable, Heart-Links and the Ursuline Sisters. I spent 30 years in leadership roles within the financial services industry and I hold a Masters of Arts in Development Policy and Practice from the University of New Hampshire and I am a fellow of the Society of Management Accountants (FCMA and FCPA).
