“A central component of AFC’s work is to connect donors to their philanthropic goals,” says Dr. Scott Brubacher. “The task of managing an endowment on behalf of people who are no longer with us, but whose wishes we seek to honour by matching the right fund to the right project, is taken very seriously. There is always a deep sense of satisfaction in making a good match.”
Scott Brubacher, AFC’s Executive Director, says many churches struggle with the project description aspect of the grant application. “In a previous grant tips blog I encouraged applicants to simply answer the questions in section 3.3 in order. This model grant application from Holy Trinity is an excellent example of a church that followed that template.”
“This is AFC’s most successful annual campaign to date, by far,” says Dr. Scott Brubacher, Executive Director of AFC. “We know 2023 was not without financial challenges, but the growth of the annual fundraising program reflects a deepening bond between Canadian Anglicans and their national foundation.” Noteworthy was an increase of 15% in the average donation amount from member churches.
