    Fundraising Day 2022 – Call for Speakers

    Theme: IDEAs for CHANGE

    Are you or your organization looking to make lasting impact across the fundraising sector? Join us as we explore how organizations and fundraisers are incorporating inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) into their operations and fundraising practices. 

    What are we doing to ensure our work reflects the various communities we serve? What steps are organizations taking to make their hiring practices more inclusive? How are we de-colonizing philanthropy? These are some of the many conversations we are looking to lean into. 

    The time is now! We need to further reflect on where we are as a sector and engage in opportunities to have open and honest dialogues that challenge us to do better. Join us as we seek to disrupt! 

    About Fundraising Day

    Fundraising Day provides a unique one-day opportunity to network with the sectors most sought-after professionals and to learn from Canada’s top educators about the unique challenges and opportunities within the realm of fundraising and development.
