The Abbotsford Community Foundation (ACF) is accepting grant applications until Oct. 31 for the Mary Victoria Wakefield Animal Welfare Fund.

Wakefield had a life-long love of animals. She moved to Abbotsford in 1913 at the age of 10, and in her will directed that part of her estate be used to establish a fund to provide grants to local animal welfare organizations.

To apply for a grant, send an email to info@abbotsfordcf.org and request an application.

The ACF was established in 1979 with a donation from the Trethewey family. Since its inception, it has supported various local charities, as well as graduating students through its Student Awards program.
