Sharing impact for a different level of donor engagement

As charities seek to grow and build philanthropic support, donors are becoming more discerning than ever and are asking tougher questions related to a charity’s performance and effectiveness in achieving its goals. Done correctly, sharing stories of impact can demonstrate successes, while describing what a charity does and what differentiates them from other charities.

Celebrating 10 years with Reel Youth

This month marks Reel Youth’s 10-year anniversary with Tides Canada and 10-year anniversary leading the youth component of the Vancouver International Film Festival. Reel Youth began in response to the challenge that most media is controlled by adults but young people have unique perspectives, and can use film making to express themselves and be advocates for positive change.
