IDC members donate pennies to support Practice and Protection Fund and the IDC Foundation

Published by Candis Green, July 31, 2013.

Since the government eliminated the penny, we thought we’d put them to good use by asking IDC members to donate theirs to the Practice and Protection Fund and the IDC Foundation.

Hundreds of pennies were collected during provincial AGMs. In total $76.87  was raised for the Practice and Protection Fund and the IDC Foundation. ARIDO and its chapters were the top fundraiser, raising $45.15.

We would like to sincerely thank all those who donated to the fund. Your money will be put to good use by IDC to support your profession and advocate on your behalf.

Is your company interested in matching the donated amount? If so, please contact Candis Green at
