Full steam ahead!
Milo Dron
44:26
We've cut staff by 40% so just trying to renew what we have instead of go after new donations
Elaine McHarg
44:26
pushing hard
Naomi Fleschhut
44:33
We're about to launch a new fundraising campaign to help us with COVID-adapted program delivery.
Allan Prazsky
44:37
Very passive at the moment. Hit and miss based on engagement and focused effort, changes annually.
Ann Silbermn
44:45
We have stopped fundraising completely and don’t know how to get back in the game as we need it
Amy Shields
45:24
So much is uncertain, that we need to identify what the "ask" even is at this point.
Ann Silbermn
45:31
Also it is easier for us to apply for grants as they are a re a known quantity in these days of COVID
Jill Lawlor
45:36
We have large campaign in place to raise considerable funds by Dec 31
Lisa Geddes
45:41
There is SO much need and we hesitate to ask for more from a small community that is always VERY generous but now many here are struggling financially through pandemic
Emily Kammerle
45:42
Agreed Ann!
Jay Nunns
45:58
We have been passive as of late due to Pandemic. However, we are working towards a new initiative for early 2021.
Owen Plowman
46:15
We have never done formal fund-raising before. This year, we received a massive ($9 million) donation to establish a protected waterfront nature reserve on Bowen Island. Now we are contemplating formal fund-raising to build a fund for ongoing operations of these lands. We have to pay for insurance, signs, trail development and upkeep, and so on. We also want to acquire additional lands to protect
Lisa Geddes
46:55
Our BOD needs to meet before year end to plot our course for fundraising
Bree Thorlakson
46:56
Cancelled all our events, fundraising has been on hold because our small town seems tapped out financially at the moment
Emily Kammerle
47:00
Very interesting Owen, what a great cause!
Dianne Evans
47:36
Dianne Evans, Heritage Playhouse. We asked for donations from the community and that has resulted in a generous gift of shares from a local donor - we established an account to enable us to receive shares - we will focus on this on our website to encourage people to use a donation to reduce their tax - we have also received a bequest, something else we'll feature on our website.
Naomi Fleschhut
01:06:34
And then we (the charity) sells them? (asking the embarrassing question from someone who knows nothing about stocks)
Owen Plowman
01:06:47
Forgive my ignorance; if a charity then sells securities (in any amount) are the realized funds then non-taxable?
Lisa Geddes
01:18:16
I also wear hat of a director for Whistler’s The Point Artist-Run Centre BOD. Arts and cultural workers are in need and we plan to raise funds on a crowd sourcing platform. We will employ artists and pay for art by offering the work as incentives to varying levels of donations. Our goal is to split funds 50-50 between local artists and The Point

Thank you for the sport link!
Lisa Geddes
01:42:43
Thank you for the reminder about how important it is to maintain connections to donors! A newsletter will be high on Families Fighting Cancer’s list of ‘to do’ items before year end. You have also mentioned a few key points to mention in that newsletter. Very helpful.

Naomi Fleschhut
02:25:31
As a charity, should we have a financial advisor who works with our donors, or is that more of a conflict of interest?
Karen Clarke
02:25:51
Can you talk a little bit more about board motivation. Thanks
