About Abbotsford Community Foundation

We serve Abbotsford by connecting donors with causes that matter to them. Together, we build, invest and manage the gifts we have been given, for the long-term vitality of our community. We offer leadership and build bridges between the diverse groups that give our community life.

Our Impact

As we look back on 2020, we recognize how truly extraordinary it was.  The charitable sector faced unprecedented challenges, and our generous donors rose to the occasion, as the investment in long-term capital provided stability through difficult times.

With the help of our incredible supporters, we were able to grant almost $1.3 million back into our community, providing much needed assistance to some of the most vulnerable citizens in Abbotsford.  We were honoured 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.  

Since its inception, Abbotsford Community Foundation has granted more than $12 million back into our community, which includes over $5 million in scholarships and bursaries for Abbotsford students.   

How your gift will be used

Abbotsford Community Foundation offers donors the opportunity to “invest” in Abbotsford in a way that helps people today and tomorrow.  The “capital” is your endowment fund which you can start with a minimum gift of $10,000 and then build over time.  The income from your fund will go to whatever charity or charities you wish to support.  You can support the same charities or change them annually if you wish.  Endowments can also support a student award on an ongoing basis.
