Today, the Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) announced $189,000 in funding to support new projects across Canada in its May cycle of awards. AFC’s board of directors met via Zoom on May 19-20, 2021 and awarded grants to 27 applicants.
In addition to church infrastructure and restoration disbursements of $117,500, AFC provided $30,000 towards ministry and education projects that benefit Indigenous people across Canada, $19,000 for theological education and bursaries, and $17,500 in program and infrastructure investments that support children, youth, and young adults. “Thanks to the generosity of our donor family, AFC can continue to say Yes! to the creativity and compassion of Canadian Anglicans,” says The Rev. Canon Dr. Judy Rois, Executive Director, AFC, “and we are committed to funding for impact notwithstanding this global health crisis.”
