Introducing the Giving Guide

It is with great pleasure that I introduce the inaugural issue of “The Giving Guide” to the many friends of The Arthritis Society. The Guide has been created to provide practical information, tools and tips to help you reach your giving goals. It also gives me the opportunity to thank you, our valued supporters, for making it possible for The Arthritis Society to carry out its important work.  

In my professional role as the Vice President of Philanthropic Giving at The Arthritis Society, I am fortunate to be able to help Canadians give to a cause we care deeply about.  Helping you achieve your personal and philanthropic vision and make a positive contribution to the world around us is extremely gratifying.  Thank you for allowing me to be part of something we can all be proud of.

I’m honoured to be part of this inspiring community and look ahead with renewed commitment toward our shared vision of living well while creating a future without arthritis.  

I welcome your comments and questions regarding this issue of The Giving Guide, as well as your suggestions for future issues. Please feel free to call me at 1-844-979-7228 or by e-mail
