Canadians among honourees of outstanding volunteer fundraiser awards

publication date: Dec 8, 2011
Jamie and Patsy Anderson of Toronto, ON and Jeneece Edroff from Victoria, BC are among the  recipients of the Association of Fundraising Professionals' (AFP) International 2012 Awards for Philanthropy.

"Each of these honourees has chosen to make a difference in the world by getting involved and motivating others to join with them in pursuit of their noble causes" said Andrew Watt, president and CEO of AFP.

Jamie and Patsy Anderson have been named "Outstanding Volunteer Fundraisers" for setting new benchmarks for fundraising in the fields of mental and pediatric health.  Janeece Edroff is this year's "Outstanding Youth Philanthropist" (aged 5-17) for her courage in overcoming the challenges of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), a debilitating genetic disease, and raising more than $6.7 million to help children and families.

The Andersons and Edroff will be honoured at AFP's Celebration of Philanthropy on March 31, 2012 during its International Conference on Fundraising in Vancouver, British Columbia.
