Welcome to my fundraising page!
This provides a historical perspective of the Golden Daffodil Endowment Fund (GDE) and the establishment of the corporation GDE CCO (Golden Donation Endowment - Canadian Chinese Outreach).
The Golden Daffodil Ball is a signature fundraising event first organized by the GTA Canadian Chinese Community in 1998. Since then each year it has raised a hundred thousand dollars for the Canadian Cancer Society. In January 2009, a group of dedicated committee members of the Golden Daffodil Ball and the Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division reached an agreement to establish a capital fund - the Golden Daffodil Charitable Endowment Fund (GDE).
The Endowment Fund allows the principal to be accumulated within the Fund, while only the income generated by the fund is used. This conserves the principal and creates a perpetual fund for the use of Canadian Cancer Society.
The committee members believe that a capital fund such as GDE will be used to:
- create an awareness and pool the resources within the Chinese Community in the fight against cancer.
- create a legacy to support the mission of the Society on a perpetual basis.
The mission of the Society is to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer.
Thank you for the generous group contribution of over $3,800.00 in memory of Mrs. Yuk Wah Sum-Wong.
Proceeds from my fundraiser will support Wherever the need is greatest
