Our Mission: To promote, develop and support volunteerism in the Wood Buffalo Region.
Our Vision: Wood Buffalo residents embrace volunteerism to enhance engagement in creating community.
For months, Volunteer Wood Buffalo, Leadership Wood Buffalo and Nonprofit Sector LINK have been in the process of merging their services to form one backbone social profit organization. Last week on December 5th, it was officially announced we would be calling ourselves FuseSocial.
Please join us in welcoming Manny Makia as the Chief Social Innovator of the New Entity being formed between Volunteer Wood Buffalo, Leadership Wood Buffalo, and Nonprofit Sector Link.
We are so glad to have someone with his skill set involved in the great changes taking place as we move forward with the new entity.
The 2014 Heart of Wood Buffalo Leadership Awards will be held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity High School.
Although tickets aren’t on sale just yet, they are accepting nominations for all six award categories until February 7.
It becomes increasingly more difficult to choose between all of the finalists each year because Wood Buffalo is so blessed to have such a strong community of influential leaders.
Board Leadership Award, presented by Leadership Wood Buffalo, is meant to acknowledge board members in the nonprofit sector whose ability to inspire through their actions and accomplishments is unsurpassed.
Executive Leadership Award, presented by Nonprofit Sector Link, is directed toward the senior leaders of the nonprofit sector. These nominees will have devised action plans to further assist those they serve using creativity while meeting the demands of their organization.
Social Prosperity Leadership Award, presented by Social Prosperity Wood Buffalo, awards an individual, family, organization, or small business for their contributions; be it financial, volunteer time, or in-kind services of one or more nonprofit community organizations in the attempt to help them achieve greater sustainability.
Newcomer Engagement Award in memory of Lyle Leboldus, presented by Wood Buffalo Food Bank Association, recognizes people new to the region who have quickly made Wood Buffalo there home through their commitment to the nonprofit sector and their many volunteer roles.
