AFP and The Globe and Mail are partnering to produce “Donors and Volunteers: The Heart of Philanthropy,” a special supplement that will showcase the incredible work being done by individual philanthropists across the country.
Canada’s charitable sector provides countless services and programs to Canadians across the country. From healthcare to poverty relief, education to job training – and every other issue in in between – charities have improved the quality of life in so many ways for all Canadians. But none of it is possible without two critical ingredients: donors and volunteers. Canadians are as passionate about their philanthropic practices as they are generous, donating more than $10-billion every year. In addition, it is estimated that more than 15 million Canadians give to charity every year, while many more engage in the charitable sector in countless ways – through volunteering, mentoring, or raising awareness of causes online.
Even as Canadians continue to support charities at record levels, the demographics of Canadian donors and volunteers are changing. Produced in partnership with the Association of Fundraising Professionals, this special feature will provide an in-depth look at Canadian donors and volunteers as new generations and groups come to the forefront. What do donors and volunteers want, and are their needs and expectations of charities changing?
