AFP Vancouver Island News & Events
Thank You, AFP Members!
When emergency challenges face our BC and Vancouver Island communities as they have done since the COVID crisis began, and most recently with flooding in our communities, our charitable sector steps up in so many ways. 
A big THANK YOU to all our AFP members and their organizations who continue to show up, dig in, and adjust strategies.

This demonstrates the values of heartfelt, trustworthy philanthropy and is resulting in getting help to where it is needed most. Please consider making a gift to help others on the Island impacted by the latest crisis through Giving Tuesday.
Thank you to our sponsors!

Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us last week as we honoured National Philanthropy Day and the amazing work of some outstanding individuals and groups who continuously give back to our community. We want to give a big shout-out to our National Philanthropy Day sponsors who made it all possible!

Is there really a difference between sponsorship and a donation? Aren’t they pretty much the same… except the company gets a logo or banner if it is sponsorship? Well, it's not quite that simple and that’s why your organization should truly know what the difference is; how it affects you, your organization, your donors, and your sponsors!
