The Abbotsford Community Foundation (ACF) has awarded $32,500 to three organizations as a part of the federal government’s Investment Readiness Program (IRP).
These organizations are working to create meaningful jobs, strengthen the charitable and non-profit sector, and address social challenges, including the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society in Abbotsford received $12,500 for its detailed feasibility study in providing manure management, while Emkao Foods Inc. in Mission was given $10,000 to gain sales traction for their sustainable and traceable chocolate ingredients.
Kinghaven Peardonville House Society received $10,000 to provide employment and cultural connectedness and to supply quality products for First Nations communities.
Community Foundations of Canada is a national partner in the Investment Readiness Program.
“We were honored to partner with Community Foundations Canada and the government of Canada to grant funds to these deserving social-purpose organizations. We are excited to watch them grow,” said Denise Thandi, chair of the community grants committee.
Social-purpose organizations strengthen local economies while giving back and creating more resilient and sustainable communities.
