Year in Review 2022

Our latest edition

At McConnell, 2022 brought refreshing opportunities to meet and collaborate in person as we moved deeper into our work in Communities, Reconciliation and Climate. This was also a year marked by many challenges for the sector, with rising inflation, increased demand for services and a need for large-scale mobilization of capital. This is a moment for philanthropy to revisit how we work, and how we deploy our assets to better support the organizations working to create positive impact. 

In our latest Year in Review, we share some of the work we are doing to better support our partners and improve our philanthropic practices. We are also pleased to highlight a few of our partners working across our three focus areas and to give an update on our mission-aligned investment strategy for 100% impact investing. Finally, the 2022 Review provides an overview of our finances for last year, including both our charitable giving ($32M) and impact investments ($132M).

Shining a light on our partners

Our partners continue to inspire us and make us ask how to shift our ways of working to better support the amazing work being done in communities across Turtle Island. In this Year in Review, you will have the opportunity to learn about their impact. From the NWT On The Land Collaborative’s work on land-based programs in the North, to Indigenous Climate Action’s national efforts around Indigenous climate leadership, and Disability Without Poverty’s advocacy to benefit Canadians living with disabilities, we hope these stories will inspire you too.



Finally, in our ongoing effort to be more accessible in everything we do, we have designed this report to be fully compatible with screen readers and compliant with accessibility standards.
