#149 | How has Covid-19 affected fundraising for arts organizations? Part 3: AFP Toronto Collaboration
May 5th, 2020 by Jason Lewis
This is the third of seven conversations with members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Toronto Chapter. AFP’s Toronto Chapter is recognized as a leader in promoting philanthropy and providing education, training and best practices for those in the profession. I was pleasantly surprised when members of AFP Toronto reached out to inquire how we might collaborate to create some meaningful for their community. After getting our ducks in a row over the last couple of weeks, we are all pleased to see our efforts are coming together. This collaboration has afforded us all some learning opportunities, an opportunity to bring a local community together despite social distancing, a chance to reach across international lines and to create value for fundraising professionals around the globe.
It was a pleasure to spend an hour with members Katie Hutchinson, Marilyn Brown, Carol Kehoe, and Diana Reitberger to hear their insights about what it means to be fundraising for arts organizations in these challenging times. I was encouraging to hear how these arts organizations are learning from this experience and finding new and meaningful ways of engaging with their donors. This series will air over the next couple of weeks in addition to our regular broadcasts. As always, we are very grateful to OneCause for being our sponsor.
