Change the Future Campaign

Change the Future Campaign - At CARA 2018, Josh Leslie of Stewardly founded and sponsored the Change the Future campaign by challenging CARA members to save a quarter each week until the next conference in support of the Dr. Frances Chandler Bursary for the fully online Research Administration Certificate at Mohawk College. CARA members responded with $1445 in donations at CARA 2019! Process Pathways donated another $500 and CARA made a donation in lieu of speaker gifts. The campaign continues, please join us as we aim to double the donations at CARA 2020 in Vancouver! Special thanks to member Karen Mosier for her generous donation of prizes in support of the Change the Future campaign prize draw.
