Mary Wakefield Animal Welfare Grant:

Every fall, the Abbotsford Community Foundation invites local animal welfare charities to submit proposals for funding to access the funds available from the Mary Wakefield Animal Welfare Grant. Once all applications have been received and their eligibility confirmed, the fund representatives review these applications and allocate the funds. Successful applicants are contacted by ACF staff as soon as possible.

In 2017, $13,000 was awarded to five local organizations.

In 2018, $10,500 was awarded to the following local organizations:

  • Abbotsford Police Foundation
  • Elizabeth’s Wildlife Centre
  • Tiny Tales Pony Rescue
  • New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption
  • Horse Protection Society of BC
  • Circle F Horse Rescue
  • Fraser Valley Humane Society
  • CTRS – Cat Therapy and Rescue Society

2019 awards applications will be open from October 15th – 31st, 2019.
We will post a link to the application form here at that time.
Thank you to all these wonderful organizations for caring for Fraser Valley animals and thank you to our donors for continuing to support their work through the Abbotsford Community Foundation!
