Actions and Detail Panel
Accreditation Workshop, Section C: fundraising
Wed, 21 June 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM MDT
Accreditation benefits an organization by helping them become aware of and achieve best practices in their governance, financial protocols, ethics of fundraising, staff management and volunteerism.
By having a good structure in place (which is required for achieving accreditation), an organization improves their ability to focus on their operations, deal with difficult situations in a proactive manner rather than a reactive manner, and proves their credibility to their wider community of stakeholders.
Agencies are not required to attend the full series, although for organizations taking on Imagine Canada accreditation this may prove useful.
Section C: Fundraising
What do the people who donate to your organization have a right to expect from you? How can you pay fundraisers? What needs to be on an official income tax receipt? Who can give those receipts out? In this session we cover Imagine Canada standards on fundraising.
