The Funding Network, November 26th, 2009

“Regardless of the relativities in life—money, beauty, power—at our core we all want the same things; food, shelter, love (fingers crossed) and for our lives to matter. We’re all just struggling members of one race.” Janis Rukavina Thomas, Founder and Chair.

This November 26th, 2009, an innovative charity event is taking place. Created by The Funding Network – Toronto, an extremely unique and dynamic organization, you will have the opportunity to experience and appreciate directly, innovative local programs.

Founder and Chair Janis Rukavina Thomas, has created The Funding Network – Toronto, a giving circle to provide all of us an opportunity to hear from different pre-selected charities, to ask questions and then decide which projects, if any, they would like to support. All attendants are able to meet the people who are on the front line of social change work.

Organizations that will be presenting are in the following areas:

  • Human Rights
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Health
  • Education
  • Conflict Prevention & Resolution

“If you think you’re too small to make an impact, try going to sleep with a mosquito in the room.”

This event will be held at 40 King St East, the Scotia Plaza downtown, on the 44th floor.
