Year-End Fundraising a Great Success
Youth Action Now ended 2018 on a fundraising high. Spurred on by a game-changing challenge from Fiona McKean and Tobi Lutke — who committed to match year-end donations up to $100,000 — donors gave generously.
Government relations firms like Summa Strategies, Earnscliffe, Hill & Knowlton, Converge Strategies and Strategy Corp helped us meet the match. Unions like UNIFOR joined early donors like PIPSC, CUPE and ETFO. The Lawson Foundation gave us $10,000. The Moffat Farm Cycle Club donated $6,000, contributing $1 for every hour they had spun since June. And generous individuals of all ages and descriptions gave donations from $1 to $10,000!
We’re thrilled and encouraged by the support since our launch in June, raising more than $250,000 to support grassroots action and collective leadership among young change makers.
