In this podcast, we connect with the Advisory Committee on the Charitable Sector, through its charitable sector co-chairs, Bruce MacDonald, President & CEO of Imagine Canada, and Hilary Pearson, former President of Philanthropic Foundations of Canada.
We hear about what they are seeing in the charitable sector – both what COVID-19 has caused (including significant increases and decreases in demand, depending on the sub-sector), and what the virus has brought to light about cracks in the charitable sector.
We get an inside look at what might need to change as we turn to recovery and transformation of the sector and Canadian society.
Hilary and Bruce also share guidance for foundations, charities and their boards, and highlight why this all matters.
