As Grants Committee members commended individual projects, they spoke of both the sense of “urgency” and “delight” in supporting as many applicants as possible and acknowledged AFC’s role in providing not just funding but “peace of mind,” especially to those churches seeking to repair damaged or at-risk infrastructure.
Whether motivated by their love for sacred music, belief in the value of leadership and education, a vision to reduce poverty, or a desire to support the Indigenous church, an increasing number of Canadian Anglicans are partnering with AFC to achieve their philanthropic goals.
Churchwarden Chris Yeomans is grateful to all the parishioners and many other people in who have given so generously to the church’s Say Yes! to Kids campaigns. “Most of all we are grateful to the Anglican Foundation of Canada for launching this innovative program that is having such a transformational impact on youth here at home but across Canada as well.”
