A Meeting with Bev Carrick, Co-Founder of CAUSE Canada

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 -

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Bev Carrick is a world changer. After completing her nursing degree at McGill University, Bev headed, at her own cost, to Ethiopia to work as a famine relief nurse. That introduction led to an incredible career. In Central America, Bev designed and implemented maternal, newborn and child health programs, established microfinancing programs and implemented women's empowerment programs. In West Africa, Bev designed and supervised an immunization program providing public health services to hundreds of thousands of villagers, saving countless lives. In post-war Sierra Leone, Bev managed a 3 year program working with war amputees and former child soldiers in rehabilitation, vocational training and re-integration. CAUSE Canada's work in Sierra Leone over the last 10 years has concentrated on education. With financial help from outside partners such as 60 million girls Foundation, 60 primary schools have been built, hundreds of teachers trained, not to mention school supplies and education provided to many thousands of students, who otherwise would not have had access to school. Bev will talk about her extensive background in getting underserved and vulnerable children into the classroom, ensuring their access to a quality education. 60 million girls Foundation first partnered with CAUSE Canada in 2012 in Kabala district, Sierra Leone. In November 2013 we implemented a pilot project with an inexpensive mini-server called a Raspberry Pi, onto which we downloaded math and science tutorials along with an encyclopaedia. This year, again in Kabala, we are funding a peer literacy program and self-directed computer-based learning project using Rachel Pi (raspberry's new edition). We will demonstrate the tremendous potential of this device and approach. Cost: $15 (includes tea and coffee) Payment through PayPal @ 60milliongirls.org, or by cash/cheque at the door. If paying at the door please email Paula Gallagher at gallagherpaula4@gmail.com in order to reserve a seat. Join us on May 4 to meet Bev Carrick - simply an amazing woman!

2016 CCIC Annual Conference and International Cooperation Days

Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - Thursday, May 12, 2016

Time: 8:00am - 5:30pm

Welcome to the 2016 CCIC Annual Conference – 'Fit for purpose: CSO transformation for Agenda 2030'! Every year CCIC hosts a conference to raise the profile of our sector and its important work. This landmark event brings together stakeholders from international development and humanitarian civil society organizations (CSOs), key government officials, relevant policy makers and academics from Canada and abroad. This year ‘Fit for purpose: CSO transformation for Agenda 2030’ will examine the challenges and opportunities we face as CSOs in this new era of global development cooperation.  Faced with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2030, the Paris Agreement and a new Canadian Government, 2016 is a strategic moment to influence the future direction of Canadian development cooperation. As a sector, we find ourselves with a valuable opportunity to take stock and rethink and revaluate how we work. In the last year, Canadian CSOs and our partners have responded to a range of challenges including the global refugee crisis, the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, Iraq and the surrounding region, the Ebola outbreak, and the impacts of climate change. We have also witnessed the introduction of transformational agendas including the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. And domestically we have a renewed political environment which is embracing these agendas and wanting to demonstrate global leadership. The 2016 conference is a time to reflect on crucial questions. How can Canadian CSOs position ourselves to take full advantage of all of these new opportunities? Are we up to these challenges in this new era of global development cooperation? What do we need to do differently in order to remain relevant and strategic, and add value to this new process? And how can CSOs best equip ourselves to be fit for purpose? We are members of an innovative and collaborative community. As we work together to address the ever-changing global environment, the CCIC conference provides a space for our community to meet, share practices, strengthen collaboration, challenge each other and create new models for change.

RUN FOR WATER ABBOTSFORD

Sunday, May 29, 2016 -

Time: 7:30am - 12:00pm

    Run for Water Society is a non-profit organization that raises money for clean water projects in Sasiga, Ethiopia. For the 9th year, Envision Financial Run for Water is hosting a multi-distance race event, including an Ultra Marathon, half Marathon, 10k Run, and 5k Fun Run. When you register to run, you have the option of running solo, or creating a team to run together. This May, Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada and Run for Water Abbotsford are teaming up to organize the event. FH is partnered with 9 communities there, and is thrilled by Run for Water's enthusiasm to help families thrive. Money raised by donating and fundraising goes to providing clean water which means that girls no longer have to go on daily journeys in search of contaminated water. With access to safe, clean, drinking water, kids in the village can go to school, mothers can start businesses, fathers can water their crops, and children no longer die of waterborne diseases. Last year just 10% of runners raised $300,000 and we were able to bring clean water to more than 18,000 people in Yella, Ethiopia. Imagine if we ALL fundraised or donated? Think about the profound impact we can make. THIS YEAR DON’T JUST RUN, RAISE!

10 Online Fundraising Best Practices for NGOs

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 -

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm

Presented by: Heather Mansfield of Nonprofit Tech for Good Cost: Free The technology to donate online was launched in the late 1990’s and through a process of trial and err NGOs have slowly been able to build donor’s confidence in the technology and grow their online donor database. Today online donations make up an average of 7-10% of an NGO’s annual budget and online giving continues to grow – and will continue grow – ever year. Now more than ever it’s crucial that your NGO knows the basics of a successful online fundraising campaign and has knowledge of emerging online fundraising trends in order to prepare for the future. Topics include:
  • What to look for in an online fundraising service
  • How to use social media to increase your online donations
  • How to launch a monthly giving program
  • How to launch a crowdfunding campaign
  • A discussion on the future mobile fundraising apps
  • How to be an early adopter of digital wallets
