TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Toronto will be the host to some of the
biggest names in philanthropy at a unique summit-style conference in
February 2013, called PURE Philanthropy.
Speakers from Canada and the United States, including John Tory, Mallika
Chopra (founder of Intent.com and daughter of Deepak Chopra), Hugh
Evans (recently named in Forbes Magazine as the top 30 Under 30),
Martha Rogers and George Fierheller, among many others, will gather for
the first time to discuss the issues, the potential and explore what's
next for philanthropy's role in creating a better world.
"PURE will reinforce the importance and the power of people and ideas.
Mountains can be moved, change can happen, and the impossible can be
possible, so long as we are all willing to look around the task and
find a way forward," says Frank Cerisano, a leading fundraiser in
Canada and founder of PURE.
"My other hope is that we build a solid and thriving network of people
doing work in philanthropy who truly believe in being innovative and
being the change masters in their own communities."
Limited to 50 participants, and designed as a two-day session on
February 7th and 8th, PURE Philanthropy will be driven by the energy of accomplished
campaign strategists, renowned guest speakers and high level experts,
to open your mind to the key principles of fundraising, face-to-face
cultivation, and strategic solicitation and stewardship that will set
you apart in this competitive environment and economy.
The net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Canadian Council
of Advancement Executives, an association of advancement professionals
dedicated to improving alumni, fund raising and marketing relations in
the educational sector across Canada.
