Investing in Community

October 21th, 1:15-3:15 pm

Helen Burstyn will discuss the impact of investing time and money in the non-profit and charitable sectors. Volunteers and philanthropists are doing more than 'good works' when they contribute their personal and professional resources to community-based organizations. The value of this is hard to quantify and easy to under-estimate. They are making significant investments that deliver substantial social and economic ROI. A strong public sector and private sector cannot function without a strong third sector -- the 'communities sector' -- which relies on the engagement of professional volunteers and venture philanthropists.

Most Canadians say they want to die at home, but most do not. Dr. Griffin and Dr. Wintemute will discuss this discrepancy, and what we can do better as a society to allow people more self-determination in this regard.

The end of life is – well – part of life. Dr. Griffin and Dr. Wintemute will discuss opportunities that we have to make better plans and to realize them, starting with more meaningful conversations with our loved ones and our health care providers.
