The Canadian Foundations & Endowments Forum East returns in 2015 for its 5th edition. This event brings together key foundation and endowment leaders to discuss the investment and philanthropic strategies designed to meet their organizational objectives.

Hear about proven strategies to solve key challenges including generating superior returns through the right investment vehicles, managing board expectations, and continuing to meet your organization’s mandate.

Join us for this two-day event in vibrant downtown Toronto!

Keeping sight of long term goals and investment mandates is a challenge that even the most patient investors face in a global economy that continues to pour new predicaments on the embers of a long overdue sustainable recovery. With tumbling commodity prices, a depreciating Canadian dollar and the spillovers from the global economic crisis, all institutional investors including executive teams from Foundations and Endowments have to consistently review their strategies in order to manage their funding, spending and investment mandates.

The 5th Edition of the Canadian Foundations and Endowments Forum will once again bring together the senior leadership teams from Foundations, Endowments and Not-for-Profit Organizations to share best practices to successfully navigate the complex maze of investments, philanthropic initiatives, and governance structures that are part of the roadmap to providing the adequate support for the organization’s purpose and mission.

This year’s forum provides an unparalleled opportunity to gain practical insights from North American industry leaders, leverage meaningful peer-to-peer networking to share ideas and benchmark strategies, examine cutting edge solutions to emerging challenges and evaluate new ways of thinking to meet organizational objectives.
