March 26, 2020 Update
We see and hear the demands the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on the charitable and public health sectors and we can only anticipate the long-term effects it will have on our communities. As a community foundation, we take seriously our responsibility to listen and support community in whatever way we can. To do so safely and effectively, we have made some necessary, temporary changes to our operations and programs below.
For the health and safety of our staff and all visitors the ACF office is closed to the public, except under pre-arranged circumstances. We will remain operational and will continue to conduct all normal business operations. We are pleased to connect with you by email, phone or video conferencing.
Our Student Awards Program is continuing. We are actively reviewing the almost 4000 applications and our donors are making their selections. We are monitoring how the 2020 school year is progressing and will be ready to announce the recipients in June at graduation.
We have extended the deadline for our Smart & Caring Community Grants program to April 30th to give our charity partners additional time to apply.
We have established an Abbotsford COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund in response to the immediate emergency needs some of the front-line charities require as they assist our most vulnerable citizens.
At this time, we have postponed all events until June 1st and are moving forward with our September 17th Golf Tournament.
We will continue to post updates and any changes to our regular operations and granting programs on this page. For any other information, please contact Wendy Neufeld at firstname.lastname@example.org
