National Philanthropy Day

Thanks for helping us celebrate National Philanthropy Day 2022 with AFP this last November 15! 

In the wake of the pandemic we've all heard the catchy taglines like "build back better" and "the new way forward", but how are we turning these well intended words into sincere action? Join the Association of Fundraising Professionals Nova Scotia Chapter as we discuss real strategies to break through the red tape, focusing on:

  • The non-profit sector's relationship with government and how we can work with leaders more effectively
  • The barriers that traditional funding models pose and how granting bodies can make meaningful change
  • The specific challenges that grass-roots organizations face when navigating traditional funding systems
  • The misconceptions that keep us from embracing accessible, flexible and more balanced ways of work


  • Lisa Lachance, MLA, Halifax Citadel-Sable Island
  • Omolara Ogunbosi, Executive Director, The Africadian Empowerment Academy
  • Matt Thomson, Co-Founder / CEO, Placemaking 4G
  • Fiona Valverde, CFRE, VP of Revenue Generation with the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
  • Adam Langer, Director, Public Affairs, NATIONAL Public Relations


  • DeRico Symonds, Community Advocate

Full participation in this session is applicable for 1.75 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
