National Philanthropy Day

Brad Jacobs and David Rudderham

National Philanthropy Day is a day to recognize and celebrate the achievements of volunteers, fund raisers, charities and organizations and there's absolutely no shortage of that here in Cape Breton.

One of the most successful is the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation headed by Brad Jacobs, and the chair is a volunteer David Rudderham.

They've been in the sector for a few years and we've invited them into studio to talk about what the sector is like, what givings are like in this community and how you get people to part with the money for their neighbours.
