Thanks to three major FUNdraising events and most importantly to the generosity of our donors, both loyal and new, Our Harbour’s Individual Fundraising Committee is pleased to report a most successful 2017 fiscal year. In fact, we surpassed our goal of $12,000 by 35%, raising a total of over $16,200!
The first of our three official FUNdraising activities took place on October 15th, with the Montreal Walks for Mental Health. More than 30 members of the Our Harbour community walked with others through the streets of Montreal raising close to $1,700 and attracting 13 new donors.
Our annual fall campaign was launched in November and was also a huge success. We surpassed our initial goal by 23%, raising a total of $15, 337, including gifts from more than ten new donors. We saw an increase in the number of monthly donors as well as individuals who have pledged donations for future years.
After raising over $1,600 at our fun-filled Psychedelia! painting event on March 4th, we plan to respond to the positive feedback with a similar FUNdraiser later this year. Stay tuned.
THANK YOU! We look forward with great anticipation to sharing another series of FUNdraising and FRIENDraising events with you in 2018-2019! SKB
