Supporting a community happens in so many ways, both large and small. Perhaps it’s about fostering education through scholarships and grants, perhaps it’s about sharing our heritage stories, and let’s not forget supporting programs for youth, including sports, nutrition, camps, and so much more. The people behind many of these community building programs in the City of Abbotsford is the Abbotsford Community Foundation. This one organization funds a truly surprising number of programs all across the spectrum of things for kids from one day to one hundred, and more!

And my Guest today is here to explain some of how this amazing group works. She’s the Executive Director of the Foundation, responsible for much of the fundraising and relationship-building that creates expansion and learning opportunities for so many of us. She’s also the recipient of the Order of Abbotsford, a member of the local Rotary club, and recognizable local business person. Please welcome Wendy Neufeld!
