I am delighted to say that the Board of Directors of the Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) has approved nearly $650,000 in grants and bursaries to 110 applicants as part of its November grant cycle, bringing the Canada-wide 2021 grant awards total to more than $835,000.
This includes an astonishing $470,000 in funding for the Say Yes! to Kids Request for Proposals: the largest one-time investment in youth-focused ministry the Canadian church has seen.
You will be happy to learn that the Diocese of Nova Scotia & PEI embraced Say Yes! to Kids with a spirit of innovation and creativity. Ten of your youth-focused ministry projects have been approved for a total of $61,650 in funding. This brings your 2021 diocesan grant awards total to $68,150!
I am grateful for the generosity of Canadian Anglicans, and the many AFC supporters in the Diocese of Nova Scotia & PEI who have made this transformational investment possible. For those who were unable to join us, I hope you will enjoy this highlights reel of the grant awards celebration in your diocese:
