"The Anglican Church of Canada may be facing demographic challenges, but responses to fundraising remains strong, said Monica Patten, interim director of Resources for Mission (RfM) in a March 11  presentation to Council of General Synod (CoGS). .... Patten reported that RfM had, through its various programs and diocesan partners, brought in an unaudited total of $912,932 in 205 -- $2,333 more than was raised in 2014". "A key part of that fundraising plan, Patten noted, was a 2014 decision to acquire technology for a donor management system. The system, launched in 2015 ...". "In particular, she noted that the national church's 'Giving with Grace' fundraising campaign had brought in $611,721, as opposed to the $639,303 raised in 2014". "Patten who took over as interim director of RfM in January 2014, will step down in 2016. Archdeacon Michael Thompson, general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, said he hopes a new director will be chosen before General Synod 2016 meets in July. Patten said she is willing to stay on until her successor is chose".
