IBAO Supports WICC Ontario in 2020
With Marilyn Horrick, Co–Chair, WICC Ontario
What’s WICC Ontario’s main objective this year?
With chapters in 4 provinces and donations of over $17.5 million, WICC continues to look for new opportunities to unite companies and people to support a cause that affects us all. With 1 in 2 Canadians expected to develop cancer in their lifetime, WICC’s mission has never been more important, and WICC Ontario’s looking to do its part. Our Gala, Golf, Breakfast and Relay for Life are ramping up this year. And with support continuing to grow around our Ottawa-based events, that region is shaping up to have a banner year.
How much money was WICC Ontario able to raise in 2019? What’s your 2020 target?
We’re proud to have donated $575,000 on behalf of the insurance community for funds raised through sponsorship, individual donations and net proceeds from each of our annual WICC Ontario events last year. This contribution brings WICC Ontario’s overall donation to over $10.6 million dollars to the Canadian Cancer Society. Our plan for 2020 is to increase annual donations to over $600,000.
How can Ontario Brokers support WICC Ontario?
We’re proud to have had the support of many brokers over the years, many of whom have been instrumental in helping us reach some of our loftiest goals. We recognize that the broker community is built on relationships and employs our industry’s most well-connected people, and we welcome the Ontario Broker community to help fund research, awareness and support by:
  • Raising awareness—consider WICC as one of your brokerage’s choice charities
  • Posting WICC volunteer and event opportunities on your company’s intranet
  • Fundraising through golf tournaments, dress down days, employee payroll deductions, matching gifts programs or individual donations
  • Attending and sponsoring annual WICC and WICC NeXt Gen events
  • Becoming a WICC National Sponsor
