St. John of God Fundraising Alliance Dublin (Ireland)

The last meeting of the St John of God Fundraising Alliance scheduled for 2013 was held on September 20, in Dublin, at the Provincial Curia of the Province of Western Europe.

In addition to reporting on the projects and activities being implemented by each of the member organisations co-ordinated by the Missions and International Cooperation Office (UMICOI), the members devoted considerable time to sharing and reflecting on fundraising: "How we raise funds?, and ?traditional and new fundraising methods".

The Congregation of the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd had also been specially invited to the meeting, at which they gave an account of their fundraising work and a most interesting report on their particular mission and social work where they are present, mainly in the United States and Canada.

In order to continue enhancing their coordinated work and networking, the members of the St John of God Fundraising Alliance (Coordination Team) ? UMICOI, Curia General; Juan Ciudad ONGD, Spain; the St. John of God Development Company, Western Europe OH Province; AFMAL, Italy; Fundaçao Sao Joao de Deus, Portugal ? also devoted part of the day?s deliberations to scheduling and planning activities for the new Sexennium.

Upon adjourning the meeting, thanks were addressed to the host Province and to the Provincial Development Office Team for their welcome and for preparing the meeting. The members reiterated their intention and commitment to continue pursuing the mission entrusted to them, attentive to new needs, using both traditional and new resources, and above all accompanying the local partners to enable them to take on an increasingly front-line role in their own history.
