Canadian fundraisers rallying together

I'm looking forward to tomorrow.

An idea I had a few months back comes to fruition tomorrow when my friends at Canadian Fundraiser host a Canadian first event, Surviving and Thriving in Challenging times.

There are going to be some great people there, panelists and delegates alike.

We've managed to get 100 people paid up and ready to go in what promises to be a day of sharing, best practice and hopefully real honesty about what's happening in the trenches.

And what we should do moving forward.

Not only am I looking forward to sharing my 20 cents worth in my session, but because I'll be learning myself. And that's always a good thing.

But even more so, I'm looking forward to my next blog tomorrow night. I hope there are some juicy insights to share from the coming together of 100 plus Canadian fundraisers thirsty for knowledge and coming together for the greater good.

I better get some sleep now.

Dear Jonathon,

Congratulations on a fantastic Day. It was just great. Very worthwhile. You neglected to mention that Pareto Fundraising was the lead sponsor for this event. So thanks to you guys because Karin who came with me now feels inspired and supported to keep getting those corporate sponsors for us! Yeah!
