Our next monthly meeting:


Date: Thursday,  February 27, 2020

Topic: Impact and Beyond: Canada’s Evolving Culture of Giving

Speaker: Teresa Marques, President and CEO , Rideau Hall Foundation

Time:  8:15 – 8:30 am   Networking
            8:30 –  9:30 am  Meeting

Starting with some insights from Thirty Years of Giving, this session will look at what the current data around giving is telling us, how giving is changing across generations and in specific demographics (women, young people, new Canadians).

We’ll then take a leap in imagining what the next 30 years of giving could look like. And what it will take to widen the giving circle and inspire Canadians to give of their time, treasure and talent.

PAFN would like to thank the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough for their generosity in sponsoring Ms. Marques’ visit to Peterborough.
