Dear AFP Members,

I hope this note finds each of you well and managing with all the uncertainty during this most difficult time. We know that COVID-19 is affecting our sector and those we serve.

I want to take a moment to let you know that sector leaders across our country have been working together to send a common message to the government: COVID-19 is impacting our sector too! Our government needs to include charities and nonprofits in its response to the crisis at hand. A letter has been sent to the Prime Minister requesting urgent support for our sector. AFP Canada, along with nonprofits and charities from across our sector, has endorsed this letter.

It’s time to advocate! Please take a minute to ADD YOUR VOICE by sending a letter to your MP. Imagine Canada has created a form that only takes a minute to complete. Once you have sent your MP a letter, please share this message with your network, including others in your chapter. The time for us to act is now as the government is making important decisions that will have an impact on our sector.

Thank you for all that you do for AFP. It is truly appreciated.
