Getting Acquainted and Making Plans
Jun 11, 2018
the Board of Directors of the YW attended their annual Board retreat. The retreat is an opportunity for new Directors to get to know their volunteer and staff colleagues, to build their knowledge of the association, and to do some planning for the year to come.
In Waterloo Region, the number of charitable donors and the amount of donations both declined in 2017 (by 1.1% and 3.2%, respectively), while charities’ needs continue to grow. If we’re to continue to operate our programs and services, the YW needs to find new and better ways to engage donors and raise funds. The focus of this year’s retreat was fundraising.
