Anglican Foundation of Canada Funding Announcement

By on January 1, 2021

The Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) has announced $210,000 in funding to support new projects across Canada in its November cycle of awards. AFC’s board of directors met via Zoom on November 18-19, 2020 to endorse its new 2020-2023 strategic road map, in addition to awarding grants to over 45 applicants.

“The spirit of generosity among the Board of Directors remains strong even during the pandemic,” says the Rev. Canon Dr. Judy Rois, AFC’s executive director. “While grant disbursements have necessarily been lower than in previous years,” says Rois, “AFC was still able to support a number of applications for funding from coast to coast to coast. Additionally, 29 student applicants received a bursary for theological studies.”

In addition to infrastructure and restoration disbursements of $127,500, AFC provided $36,000 for innovative ministry projects, $29,000 for theological education bursaries, and $10,000 towards ministry and education projects that benefit Indigenous people across Canada.

During the global crisis of Covid-19, AFC, like many other organizations, has experienced a decrease in donations, yet was able to fund important ministry of all kinds: a furniture bank that provides gently used furniture for people in need, an affordable housing project, a homework club, a solar power generation grid, a garden of remembrance, online psalms for public and private worship, the revitalization of Indigenous languages project, and a digital classroom.
