A note to our wonderful Friends and Donors
Normally at this time of year, the family of Friends and Donors of the Canadian Samaritans for Africa (CSA) are engaged and saturated with information about our annual fundraising event. However, this is not the case this year for a variety of reasons, all with a view to improving what CSA does and how.
There have been additions to the CSA board of Trustees this year, namely Susan HooKong-Taylor, Linda Ncube, Joseph Hargoe, Marlene Matyszczuk and Michelle Cheeseman.
These new members bring a wealth of experience, passion and shared vision of CSA goals and objectives. You can read more about them on our website. It is our hope with adding such a diverse team to our existing board, CSA will become better than ever.
In addition to the new board members, there have been ongoing operational improvements with service delivery and oversight of CSA projects, including website redesign and strategic planning to enhance fundraising initiative for 2020, details of which will be shared as they become available in our Newsletters.
As a result of the foregoing, the Board decided not to have the annual Gala fundraising event in November this year, 2019.
We value your continued support during this time and, although there will be no annual fundraising gala, we would welcome any financial donations you are able to provide to CSA this year. Your gift makes it possible for us to continue our mission of building on the assets of the African Woman.
