The CLF’s Partnership Working Group (PWG) is charged with developing partnerships with industry, corporate donors and potential grantors for the purpose of supporting the operations and goals of the CLF by building financial sustainability for long-term success. Some initial projects included building a robust distribution list, launching holiday fundraising campaigns, creating new branding and promoting lymphedema awareness by advertising in the National Post and Toronto Subway stations. Chaired by Bonnie Baker, this group has now prioritized its efforts by launching and building industry support for the CLF’s Pathways magazine, which has become a sustainable revenue source to support CLF operations.
The Canadian Lymphedema Framework is built on strong collaboration and the partnerships it has established with other country frameworks, provincial associations, industry supporters, grantors and funders, donors and individual volunteers. Our work would not be possible without their support.
