CDF Gratitude Report 2016

The Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) published its third annual Gratitude Report this January.

Like in past years, this year's Gratitude Report has been published in appreciation of all of CDF's supporters, including volunteers, individuals, co-ops, credit unions, and other businesses from across Canada. It also demonstrates the impact that their contributions have made to CDF's projects around the globe.

Since 2012, CDF and its implementing partner the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) have worked to reduce poverty and increase prosperity by strengthening credit unions and co-operatives in 22 countries. In this time, volunteers have contributed nearly 10,000 volunteer days, and donors have contributed nearly 9 million dollars to support international projects. This time, talent, and treasure are essential in CDF's ability to leverage support from international development partners, including Global Affairs Canada.

CDF's Gratitude Report highlights some of our supporters' stories, as well as some stories of how they are helping to Build a Better World
