New AACF Named Funds

Three local families have set up a fund to create a legacy in our community.

Dr. Dennis Boadway- The Boadway Family Fund

Harvey Tribe- The Harvey and Kathleen Tribe Family Fund

Jeff Wiebenga- The Jeff and Nicole Wiebenga Family Fund

Aylmer Area Community Foundation pools charitable gifts in a capital fund to create a lasting legacy for the future of our community. The Foundation grants money to organizations and projects to the Town of Aylmer, Township of Malahide and the Municipality of Bayham.

Creating a “Named Fund” is yet another way to contribute to the Foundation. A fund can be set up and named after an organization or family. By establishing a Family Fund, people have created a legacy to the community on behalf of themselves and their heirs. To establish a Named Fund in honour of a family or organization, a minimum $1,000 is required over 5 years.

We are encouraging other families in the community to set up a named fund.
