2022: Another Successful Year Supporting Cheetahs

Reaching More Canadians

Our Canadian supporters understand the importance of saving biodiversity at home and abroad.  In 2022, we grew our support to Cheetah Conservation Fund to support cheetah conservation programs in Namibia, Somaliland and Kenya.

In this blog post, we’ll explain what we did, and how these funds will be used by CCF, below…read on.

We thank all of our donors and key supporters – new and repeat – for their valued involvement and support.

Key Awareness and Fundraising Efforts in 2022:

  • Annual General Meeting & Town Hall featuring key representatives from Vanier College in Montreal, QC
  • Our online Silent Auction in June raised more than $3K
  • A new volunteer committee helped us to organize the 2nd Annual Cheetah Fit Challenge which grew significantly to 15 teams, 60 participants, and nearly $25,000 in donations.
  • Toronto Zoo volunteers participated in an excellent Zoom call with Dr. Ashley Marshall and Nathalie Santerre, two Canadians who volunteered at CCF Somaliland in 2022
  • In lieu of an in-person visit to Canada, we held a conference call with Dr. Laurie Marker in the fall.
  • A new Emergency Fund for Medical Supplies for Somaliland was established, raising approx. $4K in one month
  • A successful year-end giving email campaign raised another $11K
