2018 National Philanthropy Day Lunch

On November 15, 2018, the Abbotsford Community Foundation hosted our 8th annual National Philanthropy Day lunch to  celebrate philanthropy in our community. Our 155 guests enjoyed an inspiring presentation from our keynote speaker, Ed Fast on the importance to Give where you Live.

Abbotsford Community Foundation is honored to provide a way for people to invest in their community, to leave a lasting impact, and to inspire future generations to participate as well.

We also presented our annual Business, Youth and Volunteer Philanthropy awards.  The winners in each category were as follows:

Business Philanthropy – MNP LLP

Youth Philanthropy – Aidan Schweinbenz

Volunteer of the Year – Nikolas Venema

 

Please see the media release here for further event details.  Stay tuned for our 9th annual event on November 14, 2019.  Help us celebrate our anniversary of 40 years of giving in the Abbotsford community.  We have given out almost $11,000,000 in grants and scholarships since our humble beginnings 40 years ago.
