New Partnership to Strengthen Training for Nonprofit Leaders
November 19, 2012
Canadian fundraising professionals and the charitable sector are about to receive a major boost in training and development, thanks to an initiative funded by Mackenzie Investments.
This new partnership will offer in-depth education, training and networking activities for Canadian-based nonprofit leaders and professional fundraisers, including a new Canadian web conference series and a national scholarship program.
Implementation of the program will be led by the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy - Canada with a goal of assisting fundraisers to compete more strategically by providing opportunities to learn from respected colleagues, develop key professional skills and share experiences with colleagues.
“This investment from Mackenzie Investments will help fundraising professionals prepare for new conversations about best practices in Canada,” said Patti Greenwood, CFRE, chair of the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy Canada. “In fact, this project is breaking new ground in the sector, and we expect that it will offer some practical insights and strategies for professional fundraisers that are interested in taking their career and their organization to the next level.”
