Better Funded = Fund Development + Fundraising + Events

During the past 15 years, we have been working with organizations on their different fund development needs. Our services range from fund development consultancy, research and strategies, feasibility studies, to being an organization's in-house fund development team, doing hands on fundraising and organizing fundraising events and activities. We have recently worked with::

BC Association for Charitable Gaming

We have been involved in the BCACG/Volunteer BC annual symposium for quite a few years. This year, we helped them launch a 50/50 raffle, sponsored by Darelle to raise fund for the Symposium and their programs.

Vancouver Maritime Museum

Being the in-house fundraising team of the Vancouver Maritime Museum, we have been working on exciting fundraising and event projects. Being a part of the Franklin discovery has been a fabulous experience, amongst other happenings!

BC Wildlife Federation

We worked on a variaty of fundraising initiatives for BCWF including the BC Community Gaming Grant, Young Canada Works and Summer Student application, assisting in their annual lottery, and assisting in the organization of their annual province-wide annual conference.

Vancouver Shaughnessy Lions Club

Involving in the Club's annual fundraising events have been great fun. We worked on their 25th Anniversary Fundraising Gala in 2014, which included designing an 80-page commemorative program, being a key part of the event organizing team, and working with the club to successfully launched the event in the Vancouver Convention Centre for 340 guests. The Gala event included a Stilt walker, silent and live auctions, a fashion show with lions dance, and raised more than $100,000. The 2015 event was a smaller high tea and fashion show with 190 guests raising over $40,000.

Touchstone Family Association

We worked with Touchstone Family Association on their 2013 Eating Together Campaign. The Campaign engaged the entire Richmond community and raised awareness of the importance of "eating together" as a simple but effective means to bring a family together. This Campaign also helped raised funds for Touchstone's Front Porch Program.
