While the original WCFC2020 dates are still 60 days out, with the current unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation, the only responsible choice is to alter course on this year’s gathering.
We are confident the best approach is to reschedule WCFC2020. We’ve reached out to our key people and are working with our venue in Kelowna.
The almost confirmed dates are now 16-18 September 2020. There are a few details to finalise before we can confirm these dates, but given all of the uncertainty every one of us is facing day-to-day, we wanted to give you as much information as possible..
We will update you and confirm the new dates for WCFC2020 in the next few days.
Also in the coming days and weeks, we’ll be offering an exclusive series of articles, videos, webinars and other materials to help you keep your fundraising skills sharp.
