This year’s edition of our annual Giving Guide is hot off the presses! Working together with the Foundation WCPD, we offer insights into the city’s charitable sector, including detailed profiles of many of our local non-profits that support such a wide variety of important causes.
This year’s publication explores the concept of ESG (environmental, social, governance) and how it applies to the non-profit sector. Of course, ESG has been a hot topic in the private sector for some time, and it’s interesting to learn how its principles can be brought to life in the charitable world. We speak with many local charities about their ESG initiatives.
Along these lines, we also feature local entrepreneur Gary Zed and his new venture, Canada Forest Trust, a nature-based company that connects the dots between the rapidly increasing needs of businesses to get to net-zero emissions and a tangible solution. Learn how Zed is “democratizing forests” through his new company.
Finally, we check in with the Association of Fundraising Professionals about what’s new in their profession and highlight this year’s winners of the AFP Ottawa Philanthropy Awards.
