Celebrating 15 Years of Alberta's Promise                                                                                  Register now

Thursday, February 15, 2018  |  2pm - 4pm
Alberta's Promise Office (5th Floor)
2520 AMEC Place
801 6 Avenue SW

Alberta's Promise was founded in 2003 to encourage businesses, communities, and non-profits to work together with the goal of enhancing resources for children and their families across the province. This year marks our 15th anniversary, and as we take inventory of what we have accomplished together with our network of over 1800 business, community, and non-profit partners, we can't help but be proud.

We have encouraged businesses to think creatively and strategically about their community involvement. We have helped non-profits spread the word about the support they need and why it matters to Alberta families. And of course, we have facilitated countless community connections and partnerships for good.

As we celebrate 15 years in Alberta, we invite friends, supporters, and Promise Partners to join us for a casual open house featuring food, refreshments, networking, a photo booth, and more! There will be a brief welcome at 2:30PM; otherwise, arrive when you can and stay as long as you like.

This event is free to attend, but please register through Eventbrite.

 

PromiseConnect || Digital Giving and the New Economy                                                          Register now

FEATURED SPEAKER: Derek Fraser (CanadaHelps) and Jay Baydala (Goodpin)
Tuesday, February 27, 2018  |  12pm - 1pm (Doors at 11:30am, Speaker at 12pm)
McDougall Centre
455 6 Street SW
Rosebud Room, 4th Floor

In an increasingly digital age, it's no surprise that mobile and digital charitable giving are replacing more traditional methods, such as direct mail. Businesses and individuals want to be able to support the causes they care about with the click of a button. Charities and non-profit organizations want to maximize fundraising, lower costs, and gain access to new donors. Is your organization making the most of this shift?

Join Derek Fraser, Western Canada Charity Engagement Specialist for CanadaHelps, and Jay Baydala, Founder and CEO of Goodpin, as they share current trends in digital giving.

Suitable for businesses and non-profit organizations alike, this presentation will show how technology is driving and disrupting the “usual” way of charitable giving. 

The session will explore concepts such as:

 
  • Democratization of giving
  • Purpose giving
  • Technology and the trust-factor
  • Mobile optimization
  • Geolocating for charities and corporate partners
  • Social media as a communication tool
  • Website upgrades to optimize giving
