Foundation Board Of Directors

Chairman's Message

I am pleased to be the chair of the Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation Board of Directors, a group of 13 volunteers committed to the success of the centre, in other words to help children and youth with special needs reach their potential. The Foundation does this by helping raise the Centre’s profile and in so doing making a connection to supporters.

This year the Board was challenged to individually actively participate in any three of the events and fundraisers initiated by the Foundation. Our strategic plan steers us toward a higher profile for the Centre. As we work to increase our brand awareness and understanding we will also make it easier for donors to give, broadening our donor base and ultimately ensuring adequate resources. We will be actively involved in the capital campaign to raise the funds necessary for our new home. 

While we work to realize this outcome the everyday work of the Foundation continues, securing the funds necessary to support Centre needs beyond government funding especially recreation and camp programming. Such activities build self-esteem, physical and mental well-being and most importantly a sense of belonging for our children. It is gratifying when supporters see this benefit and donate to make this possible.

A key driver of our work is the Foundation Board to which we welcome 4 new board members and say a fond farewell to other board members. 

Thank you for what you all do to support the Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation and our children.

Dave Neely,
