Our Next Meeting…

Thursday March 22, 2018: Inclusivity in Fundraising Panel

Kemi Akapo, Kim Dolan, Carol Lawless & Casey Ready all know a thing or two about fundraising. But they all share a few burning questions that impact the work of their organizations: Who does the idea of “Donor Love” leave out? How can we pull heartstrings without breaking ethical lines for our mission and our clients? How do we balance pressures in fundraising with changing political landscapes? How can we work with donors, clients and volunteers to build a better community for all?

Join these four for a coffee, as they share personal stories, reflections, and open up the floor to your questions and thoughts on ethics in fundraising and storytelling. They will introduce some interesting concepts like: philanthrocapitalism, neoliberalism and power relationships in fundraising that impact our daily work as fundraisers, Boards and Executive Directors.

Presented by: Kim Dolan: Executive Director, Peterborough Aids Research Network, Carol Lawless: Fund Development Coordinator, New Canadian Centre, Kemi Akapo, Settlement Services Coordinator, New Canadian Centre, Casey Ready: PhD, MSW, BSW, Executive Director Community Counselling and Resource Centre

Time: 7:45 am – 8:00 am Networking
8:00 am – 9:00 am Presentation

Location: Five Counties Children’s Centre, 872 Dutton Road, Peterborough . Please enter the building by the north (far) door.
