Board of Directors Update
November 23, 2016
It has been a very busy summer and fall for the staff and the Board of Tatamagouche Centre.
The staff have worked hard to deliver the programs and to ensure the hosted events were successful. By running the Centre with a very small and flexible staff the Centre is on track to generate a surplus this year which is another very important step in returning to financial stability and long-term sustainability.
The Board, with the able assistance of the Transition Advisory Committee and Eric Tusz-King working on a six month contract, is finally able to present the 5-year Business Plan which is to serve as the guide for the Centre’s long-term sustainability. During his work Eric reached out to hear from a broad array of stakeholders in order to develop a plan that was responsive to the Tatamagouche Centre community. The goal of long-term financial sustainability while meeting the mission of the Centre has necessitated the development of an ambitious plan. At its heart is the continuing focus on the Centre’s programs, the renewing of its partnerships and the stance of being open and visionary regarding its future opportunities.
It is hoped that by delivering on these objectives that the necessary financial support from the Centre’s community of supporters will enable the Centre to meeting it ambitious and critical fundraising goals. Follow this link to see the full report. As we move forward with implementing the plan you will get a further updates as plans for 2017 unfold.
All the best,
Peter Hough, Chair Board of Directors
Annual Report 2015

We’re celebrating 6 decades of living our mission -
inviting and challenging people from diverse backgrounds to personal wholeness, right relationships, respect for creation, and justice in the world.
It takes a community!
And we are calling on our community to Give 6.
How? Make a $6 donation to the Centre this year. That’s it. It’s that easy.
If you’re coming for a program, add $6 to your program fees. If you’re buying items in our gift shop, add $6 to your purchase, or drop $6 into our donation box.
First time donors: send $6 or sign up online to give $6 a month for 12 months.
Regular donors: increase your donation by $6 or other denomination that honours 6—eg., turn $50 into a $60 donation (or $66!).
If everyone chips in a little, it will go a long way!
