President's Message

Marc ButikoferIt has been gratifying to serve as president of AFP South Saskatchewan for the past (almost) two years. For some background, I am Director, Development at the University of Regina. Previous to this I was the Director of Development at Notre Dame for four years and the Director of Development at Great Plains College for three 3 years. During this time, I have developed a true passion for the impact donors can have on our world and I am excited about working with others who feel the same.

Our chapter recently rebranded from AFP Regina to AFP South Saskatchewan to better reflect our constituency. We have hosted several education sessions and networking events, and are very excited about our upcoming education schedule for 2020.

Our chapter is pleased to have hosted the annual National Philanthropy day Awards. Among the many honourees were our 2018 and 2019 Outstanding Philanthropists: The Cugnet Family (2018) and Paul McLellan (2019).

As we work to continue to grow our membership, I hope we can also grow philanthropy in our community and celebrate the donors and volunteers who make our world better every day.

Marc Butikofer
AFP South Saskatchewan President
Director of Development, University of Regina
