20 Feb OG’s 2013 Fundraising Report
Operation Groundswell is very proud to release its 2013 Fundraising Report detailing all partner and project details along with a financial breakdown of all fundraising dollars. Through the hard work of our participants, we are excited to announce that 2013’s fundraising efforts summed $181,815 (CAD)! Our summer backpacktivists participated in projects that engaged them in communities and local NGOs, stimulating critical awareness of their surroundings and learning how to transform ideas into action.

The following fundraising report details all the partners and projects OG participants worked with in 2013. Everyone involved with Operation Groundswell – staff, program leaders, program participants, donors and community partners – played an integral role that has allowed OG to transform $181,815 of fundraised money into programs and projects that have impacted people around the world. Teams also decided to dedicate a portion of their fundraising money to the OG Project Fund for alumni-proposed projects. This fund provides past participants and program leaders with an opportunity to pitch innovative, self-sustaining projects that can be supported on an ongoing basis.

To our partner communities and NGOs: we are very grateful for welcoming us into your homes and admire your thoughtful persistence in the endeavor of creating a better world. Our raison d’etre is the meaningful work we do with you.
Always working to strengthen our operations and programs, we continue to be meticulous in our approach and are excited to learn and improve as we continue down the dusty path of backpacktivism.
As always, thank you for your support!
