Defending Philanthropy: Global’s fourth report for the greater Canadian philanthropic sector
The work of non profit organizations is transformational – from tangible grassroots impact in our communities, to national organizations driving for change at the highest levels.
But the philanthropic sector does not exist without critique. “The pandemic has emphasized the importance of the non profit sector’s work, but it has also laid bare the cracks in our operating environment”, said the 2022 Imagine Canada paper “Diversity Is Our Strength”.
As all industries grapple with their future in a post-pandemic landscape, so too does the philanthropic, considering broad-based topics like: funding challenges, the work required of us all to address equity, diversity and inclusion and how we create safe spaces for our teams and stakeholders, attracting and retaining the best talent, transparency within our operations, and adjusting course to be relevant and impactful in the future.
Using a variety of research methods, Global Philanthropic Canada set out to engage practitioners, leaders, and industry commentators within the philanthropic sector in Canada to learn more in our fourth report for the greater Canadian philanthropic sector entitled Defending Philanthropy: Understanding the impact, challenges and necessary evolution of the Canadian philanthropic sector, written by Global Philanthropic Canada’s Dionne Malcolm.
