“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen inspirational levels of generosity and leadership directed to non-profit organizations in our communities,” said Kyle Tiney, CFRE, Vice President, Community Engagement, Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Vancouver Chapter.  “We continue to be inspired and motivated to put a spotlight on some of the individuals and businesses who put so much of their own philosophies on giving back to their community through leadership, philanthropy and volunteerism.”

Global’s Sarah MacDonald will be the emcee and there will be a panel discussion and Q&A facilitated by Tracy London, new President of AFP Greater Vancouver, Co-Executive Director, Education and Engagement, Qmunity, with guests including Kevin McCort, President, and CEO at Vancouver Foundation (other panelists to be confirmed).
