No funding increase for eight organizations

Eight Abbotsford organizations will continue to receive the same fee-for-service grants in 2013 as they did this year.

Abbotsford council voted during budget talks that funding increases requested by MSA Museum Society, the Abbotsford Arts Council and the Abbotsford Youth Commission would not be granted.

Instead, the groups will again receive $100,000, $23,000 and $197,900 respectively.

The five other organizations receiving the same funds as 2012 are: Agrifair ($90,000), The Reach Gallery Museum ($625,000), Elizabeth’s Wildlife Centre ($14,000), Abbotsford Restorative Justice ($120,000) and Tourism Abbotsford ($70,000).

The total fee-for-service requests amount to $1.24 million.
