The Federation’s 2020 Annual Report

This year’s annual report explores what Altogether better really means. The reason those two words show up so often on our website and our branded materials is that they actually say a lot about our values and the approach we take in our work. We are committed to exemplifying those values in everything we do—being unified, being accountable, being bold, and being responsive. We believe the how is just as important as the what and the why.

That’s why we strive to build strong and trusting relationships, to bring people and organizations together in partnership, to advance proven and promising practices, and to consciously and boldly embed ourselves in the work of social justice and reconciliation. These are the principles that inform everything that we do. And they are a big part of how and why we have been able to accomplish some truly remarkable things over the past year.

“We have accomplished a lot over the past year. And all of these efforts were made possible by you, our members. Your time, energy, creativity, and compassion are proof that Altogether better is more than just a slogan. It’s the philosophy that guides our entire organization. It’s the call to action that drives our work. It’s the strength of our partnerships. It’s what inspires and empowers our members to make BC a better place to live and it’s a steadfast commitment to strong and sustainable social services.”

Read The Federation’s 2020 Annual Report and learn about our board, our staff team, our strong and growing membership, our partnerships, collaborative initiatives, and advocacy efforts. It does a very good job of explaining our approach to social justice and our efforts to improve the strength and sustainability of our sector.

And as always, do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns or ideas that you want to share with me, the staff team, or your board of directors.
