  • Partnerships & Alliances
  • Stronger & Diversified Donor Base
  • Funding Processes & Mechanisms
  • Globalization & Impact
  • The Fundraising Profession
  • Research: Tracking Coordination, Synthesis & Application

The research must be affiliated with a registered charity in Canada, and the Foundation will have the right to disseminate the results to the general public. 

In this issue of AFP eWire Canada is an article by Mary Bowyer, profiling the work of recent grant recipient's Chelsea Hunt and Sean Campbell, from the University of Waterloo, who studied socially responsible investing by Canadian charities.
