A message from our Chair

Karen Jackson

I’m very pleased to be writing my first Annual Review message as Chair of Plan Canada’s Board of Directors. While new to this role, I have been with the Board since 2007, working with Bernard Richard and other colleagues in our ongoing quest to make Plan Canada a stellar example of innovation, creativity and impact in the not-for-profit sector.

Organizational trust and transparency is one of the core responsibilities of the Board. A diverse group, this team brings different perspectives and areas of expertise to the table. We carefully consider strategic decisions – including whether or not Plan should accept offers from other organizations to join forces. We are committed to maintaining the tradition of excellence in governance and accountability oversight. We owe that to our supporters and all the people whose lives we touch, both here in Canada and around the world.

A message from our CEO

Rosemary McCarney

In this year’s Annual Review, you’ll meet just a few of the changemakers who are turning your generous support into lasting improvements for people in some of the world’s poorest countries. You’ll also meet some fellow Canadians who are inventing their own unique ways of supporting Plan’s work. I wish I could introduce you to them all. The people and organizations who are vital contributors to Plan’s work are a diverse group.

We love that so many Canadians join us by committing to regular support through child sponsorship, while others choose to donate to specific projects or purchase Gifts of Hope. Fundraisers for Plan run bake sales, climb mountains, host concerts or challenge business leaders to do their part. You all find your own way to say, “We believe in and support what you do – together, we can change the world!” Thank you.
