  • Address the challenges associate with soliciting and accepting corporate funding, specifically from the MFG Sector

    Begin a Trailer to a film 2012: Time for change.
    Has not yet been released in Canada

  • This is an official trailer for the film 2010 that has not yet been release in Canada.
    I feel it touches on issue that greatly affect us as fundraisers.
    In fact it was the inspiration for my presentation

  • The External Costs of Production are un quantified and tragic at this point.
    The casualties are the environment and the people who depend on it to feed their children.

    As we will see soon, there are very high costs to the manufacturing sector, not captured in the CSR Report.

  • Manufacturing is looking out for their bottom line = Profit
    External Costs to the Environment continue to add up
    We come along to save lives
    Pull on the heart strings of any one who will listen
    MFG Feels bad and gives $
    Vicious Cycle
    If we are not careful, we will accept $ from the culprits of the very issues we are working to eradicate

    We may never eradicate anything.
  • 2003 Imagine Canada, Business Support for Charities and Nonprofits
    We are fundraisers: We want to make sure that we are not perpetuating the problem by accepting money from those responsible for the tragedy we are looking to solve.

  • Lets have a look at the CSR
    Term 1970s to denote ethical and socially responsible business behavior
    Can be a very helpful document
  • Please share your experiences with me…
  • Question: What kinds of things would you typically fund on their CSR
    The very definition of the CSR is unclear, because I is not legislated.
    However, organizations do their best to paint a good picture of their operations and how they relate to the society and the environment.
  • This is an old quotation, but very suiting for an argument against a capitalist societal structure.
  • Balance exists
    Stakeholder and Share holders are working together.
    Consumers and fundraisers can feel better about their choices
  • Triple Bottom Line Reporting (people, planet, profit) requires businesses to operate from a stakeholder, rather than a shareholder perspective.

    The concept of a triple bottom is a holistic way to measure the success and prosperity of a society.

    people- social well-being
    planet- quality of the environment
    profit- strength of the economy

  • Managed by the finance committee
    Triple bottom line thinking holds that a company should combine standard metrics of financial success with those that measure environmental stewardship and social justice.

    This produces the true cost of production.
  • Triple Bottom Line Reporting is just starting to catch on in Canada.
    Though can be criticized for lacking governmental regulation, it seems to be a step in the right direction
    A bit too nes to see the inherent results in Toronto

    Speakers from France
    France and the Netherlands have established laws around 3BL
  • Let’s ask for more from our corporate donors.
    Then we as Fundraisers, can make our life's work about eradicating problems, not band aiding them.
