HN Issue 11: Why Stewardship?


Stewardship is defined as the responsible management of something entrusted to your care. Reflecting on that definition, I can’t help but take inventory of all the opportunities I’ve had to act as a steward throughout my life –  in precious relationships as a husband, father, and grandfather; in my career, civic duties and in local community commitments – I can only pray that I continue to sensitively and intentionally care for the responsibilities before me.

My current role as President of FH Canada carries the need for accountability that comes with stewarding any organization – but especially one with a mission as critical as eradicating poverty one community at a time. Stewardship is a core value of FH Canada and exemplifies our commitment to responsible planning, wise management of resources and our ultimate purpose of creating sustainable change.  

This issue of Hope Notes focuses on the diverse ways we strive to infuse the values of stewardship and accountability into every aspect of our work. You’ll read about a unique recycling program that is literally saving thousands of lives and you’ll also get an inside perspective on a non-profit’s necessary yet often misunderstood administration rate.  

We’ve also put together several creative suggestions for people looking to join us more intentionally in the rewarding work of walking alongside the most resilient global communities you could ever hope to meet.

Frankly, we can’t do what we do every day without your partnership, so part of our focus on stewardship is directly tied to you. We want you to know you’re connected, valued and respected, so we have worked extremely hard to make our activities as transparent and transformative as possible. Flip to the end of this issue to see how you can follow your impact online through updates, stories and dialogue.

Thank you for walking with us.

Be blessed,

Ben Hoogendoorn
