ACF outlines its 2023 accomplishments

The Amherstburg Community Foundation has continued to fulfill its mission to help make Amherstburg the best small town in Ontario to live, visit and enjoy. 

In 2023, ACF said goodbye to some of our board members - we sent Richard Peddie and Dan Gemus off with thanks and gratitude for their hard work serving the foundation.

We shuffled our executive board with Lori Wightman taking over as president and Jen Desjardins-Grondin stepping into the vice president role. We welcomed new directors, Laura D’Alessandro, Paul McAllister, Erin King, Courtney Sweet and Patricia Simone, putting new faces and fresh ideas into place.  

ACF helped to raise funds for a number of local projects both big and small that met our values of being healthy, inspiring and inclusive. Some of the projects we awarded grants to in 2023 were the Windsor-Essex VON Amherstburg Student Nutrition Program, WEBC Libro Trails Phase 1, Senior Caring Bench at 182 Pickering, Essex County Library, Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission shed replacement, Society of St.

Vincent de Paul, Sleep Easy Program, Cat Assistance Team TNR program, ACS IT equipment, Wings Rehab facilities update, and Runaways Farm pasture #2

The entire board of ACF looks forward to a 2024 that brings us even more that we can do to make Amherstburg even better!
