AFP Nova Scotia Chapter Event: Maritime Fundraising Conference 2023

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Access (IDEA): Diversity and Inclusion (IDEA)

NEW one-day symposium format - in-person or virtually, includes an evening social and annual Industry Awards. In an effort to be mindful of our limited financial and human resources, as well as keeping access, diversity and inclusiveness top-of-mind, MFC will alternate yearly between our traditional two-day event and this new one-day format.

Conference Theme - “Building Back Better” and “The New Way Forward” - what do they really mean!? Our inspiring National Philanthropy Day (NPD) panel dissected these phrases and started the conversation for moving toward strategic action and positive change. The momentum continues as we build toward MFC 2023, beginning with a 3-part webinar series in partnership with the Impact Organizations of Nova Scotia (IONS) in early 2023.

MFC 2023 will be a call to action for our colleagues in the Impact Sector/Social-Purpose Sector to put diversity, inclusion, equity and access (IDEA) to practice and commit to working more collaboratively with each other, with funders, government, and industry partners to identify and eliminate barriers. Sharing Tools to Build Success. MFC will move us toward making commitments to lending support to each other, building partnerships, breaking down barriers and working hand-in-hand to successfully deliver our respective missions.

We are stronger together. Find out more about how you can pitch in to help build our NFP Sector and meet the challenges of today and tomorrow -- please express your interest here and join us at our Kick-Off Meeting later in January. There is no commitment if you attend this meeting. You don’t have to be an AFP Member to participate. There are several committees to choose where you’d like to focus your skills or learn new ones!

Your MFC 2023 Co-Chairs,

Daisy Cobden and Vanessa Burns
