For a decade, Carolyne Ferrand has been making personally significant monthly gifts to causes that make her feel good.
“I make donations to the organizations I feel a connection with. Nature and animals – that’s my thing,” says Carolyne Ferrand.
“It’s mental and spiritual fuel – being outside is the best. It feeds your spirit and soul.”
Why Give Monthly?
“For me, it’s all about budget. I can control my giving and manage it better. Same as my bills and insurance, with my favourite charities I gave monthly,” says Carolyne.
“I can increase, decrease, or cease my gift at anytime. Monthly giving is flexible. And, my year-to-date contribution can be more because I give on a monthly basis,” she explains.
“Plus, the same way I budget to give to FortWhyte monthly, FortWhyte can plan with a constant source of revenue coming in. It’s a win-win. Both for me and for FortWhyte.”
“I think it’s restorative in many different ways – all aspects of nature,” the FortWhyte Alive member says. “Every visit can be different. See bison, see deer. I even learned how to canoe here.”
