2020: A Challenging Yet Rewarding Year

21 January 2021Grants & Funding, News & Announcements

As we look back on this past year, we recognize that 2020 was a challenging and unforgettable year. The charitable sector faced unprecedented challenges, yet our generous donors rose to the occasion. With the help of our amazing supporters, we were able to grant almost $1.3 million back into our community to support some of the most vulnerable citizens in Abbotsford. We were honored that our donors trusted us, the Abbotsford Community Foundation, to manage their gifts, ensuring the timely distribution of funds to where they were needed most. Our donors were there when it mattered, and we make the same commitment to be there for them. Together, we build a stronger, more caring community.
We are excited to share the substantial impact our donors’ generosity had on our community in 2020 and present 2020 by the numbers….

We could not do have done this without you! Thank you for investing in your community to make a lasting impact for generations to come. Interested in making an impact on our community in 2021? Click here.
