Funding Innovation Summit 2019

Did you know Funding Innovation’s Art Easel Program spans across Canada from coast to coast?

We have Fundraising Consultants all over Canada bringing retail and charity partners together, one easel at a time.

This past June, we gathered our group together in Burlington, ON over 2 days to re-energize and ‘fuel our fundraising fires’. Over 50 Funding Innovation staff and 20 charity and retail partners joined us for the event. We had reason to celebrate, too- Funding Innovation has raised over $6,000,000.00 for our charity partners since we began our mission in 2015!


We are grateful to all our charity partners who came and provided our team with new insights and answered our questions about the challenges they face in their efforts to fund projects and services essential to their operation. Some of our guest speakers this year included:

Stephanie has been an inspiration to the Funding Innovation team since we first heard her story, and we are always so inspired and excited to ‘do more’ whenever we get to spend time with her and her family. The Make-a-Wish Foundation has worked miracles for so many deserving children at SickKids Hospital and across Canada and we were honoured to spend more time with them at our Summit this year.

For more on Stephanie’s journey and her relationship with Make-a-Wish, you can watch her video on our Vimeo page.

Additionally, we were really excited to hear Mike Lipkin speak at our Summit. Service excellence is THE key pillar to Funding Innovation’s operations and we are always looking for new ways to grow. Since his conversation with us, we have been referring back to his words of wisdom and some of the things he got us really thinking about, while we strive to give our absolute best in all our interactions.
