The Anglican Foundation of Canada is responding to one of Vision 2019 Marks of Mission: “To respond to human need by loving service” with the establishment of a Kids Helping Kids Fund. Put a smile on the face of a child with a donation!

Programs that the Kids Helping Kids Fund Supports

The Kids Helping Kids Fund supports the following programs across Canada:

Breakfast for kids before school

2.5 million Canadians live without secure access to food. Every day in Canada, one in five kids walks to school hungry. Many Anglican Churches in our country provide a nutritious breakfast for kids – making a huge difference in their lives and their futures!

Your donation will make it possible for these breakfast programs to continue.

Helping kids with homework after school

Many kids in Canada have trouble with homework with no one at home to help them. Many Anglican Churches provide after-school homework clubs in a supportive learning environment. Homework clubs encourage kids to enjoy study and learning.

Your donation will give our children a better chance to build their future through education.

Caring for children with a terminal diagnosis

When a child receives an end-of-life diagnosis, they have many needs. With a donation to the Kids Helping Kids Fund, you can help provide compassionate spiritual and medical care. Whether a life is measured in days, weeks, or months, children living with a life-limiting diagnosis deserve the opportunity to learn, play, develop, and grow – just to be kids!

Your donation will help Families make miracles and memories out of days.

Giving kids a chance to go to summer camp or choir school

Many kids in Canada don’t have the chance to learn, play, develop and grow – just to be kids!

Your donation will make it possible for kids to be kids: to learn and grow!

How can I help?

You can make a donation directly to the Kids Helping Kids Fund by mailing a cheque, contacting the Foundation office, or through Canada Helps.

Children and youth can support Kids Helping Kids by becoming Toonie Members.

Hope Bear

Hope Bear joined AFC in 2011 as a tangible reminder that the Anglican Church cares for kids in Canada. With a $20 donation to the Kids Helping Kids Fund, you can have your own AFC Hope Bear – a great gift for a special celebration – with all funds going to support:

  • providing kids a nutritious breakfast before school
  • helping kids with homework after school
  • caring for kids with a terminal diagnosis
  • giving kids a chance to go to summer camp or choir school

Hope Bear makes a great gift for a special celebration or for someone you love.

Each Hope Bear comes with a special gift bag, paw-print tissue, and a favourite Bible verse:
“May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace.”
