Created by Townshippers’ Association, this guide is designed to help organizations providing health and wellness programming to seniors in the historical Eastern Townships, in developing sustainable fundraising plans and diversifying their funding sources. A fundraising plan can help your organization shift from being reactive to proactive. Instead of scrambling to find funding, you’ll be able to look forward, anticipate your needs, and work towards meeting them in the short and long term.
Created with the support of the Community Health and Social Services Network, funded by Health Canada through the Roadmap for Canada’s Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities. Special thanks to the Uni-Aide Foundation for generously sharing guidance and past fundraising plans with the creators of this guide.

Available on the public health directors website [santeestrie.qc.ca], Townshippers’ is happy to provide a copy of this report, in English, for download [click here].
