AFC Awards more than $260,000 in 4th Quarter Grant Cycle

The Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) has announced $261,500 in funding to support ministry projects across Canada in its 4th quarter grant cycle. AFC’s board of directors met in person on November 29–30 and awarded grants to 38 applicants across 18 dioceses and territories.

Dr. Scott Brubacher, Executive Director of AFC, says that with the three previous grant cycles, automatic disbursements from AFC’s named trusts, and a third very successful Say Yes! to Kids campaign, 2023 will be “the most generous year on record” for AFC. “Grants will likely exceed $1.1 Million.”

Summary of grants by ministry impact zone:

  • Indigenous Ministries: $50,000
  • Diverse Infrastructure: $105,500
  • Leadership & Education: $49,000
  • Community Ministry: $42,000
  • Sacred Music & Liturgical Arts: $15,000

“I was moved by the care and consideration that was given to every grant application,” says Brubacher. “Once again, we saw how the breadth of knowledge and experience that our Directors bring from across the country is essential to the review process, helping to highlight regional considerations that are relevant to our final decisions.”

The Rev. Pam Trondson, priest-in-charge at Church of the Holy Trinity joined the AFC Board meeting to share an in-person grant report, and to update Directors on the joys and challenges the people of Holy Trinity experience with their ministry to the marginalized in downtown Toronto.

Brubacher says AFC will publish a list of all grant awards from this cycle once the grant recipients have been notified. The application deadline for the next AFC grant cycle is January 1, 2024. For more information on applying for an AFC grant visit, www.anglicanfoundation.org/apply.
