The Diocese of Ontario is grateful to the Foundation for assisting many parishes in infrastructure repairs, accessibility, kids after school programs, children’s camping experiences, and the formation of children’s choirs.
AFC has posted a number of testimonials from grant and bursary recipients, board directors, diocesan representative, bishops, and representatives of theological colleges from all across the country. Each of these submissions tell a different story of how the Anglican Foundation’s generosity made an impact on their ministry setting and personal lives, and why these individuals choose to support the Foundation financially, so that others may benefit as they did.
Having received a grant and loan from AFC, it seems only right that we should support it for the sake of other churches with dreams of their own.
Giving to the Foundation is one of the best ways to support the church beyond one’s parish.

At the creation of Mishamikoweesh, the Anglican Foundation gave funds to the newly-created diocese to bring in several elders from different communities to witness the ceremonies.
Above all, we thank the Anglican Foundation for their continued commitment to bring unity, healing, and reconciliation to all peoples and for the amazing work they do for our beloved Church.
