Your Gift is Making a Difference
March 20, 2012
(Mar. 20, 2012) Do you work in the nonprofit sector because of the glamour, a fancy office and summers in France? If only! Although the path for each person is different, the reason you do what you do is because you believe in the value of philanthropy and the positive impact of giving back to your community and society.
The exciting thing is that by supporting the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – Canada through the 2012 Every Member Campaign, you are also helping to ensure the future growth and development of the sector through the advancement of ethical and effective fundraising.
With every issue of AFP Canada eWire we will provide you with a quick snapshot of how the 2012 campaign is doing.
Congratulations to the following Canadian Chapters who exceeded their goal for the 2011 Every Member Campaign:
Calgary & Area
Edmonton & Area
“Every member” is a lofty goal for any campaign – but these Chapters have set a positive pace for high member participation that inspires us all. Look for some shared best practices in a future issue.
Manitoba – 42% member donors
Vancouver Island – 36%
SE Ontario – 35%
The 2012 campaign is off to an impressive start! We’re only two months into the new year and already have attained more than 60% of our goal in pledges. Keep up the good work!
