The One Health Fund
More than ever charities across Canada are competing for much needed funding in order to continue providing their benevolent programs, services, and activities. As a result, The Canadian Foundation for Animal-Assisted Support Services (CFAS) envisions establishing a National Annual Grants Program by 2020 to help build the capacity of front-line charities so they can focus on service excellence instead of fundraising.

The First Annual Victorian Tea Party
Jacinthe Brasseur-Kalli, Claudette Brasseur-Gosselin, Diane Santilli and Jovette Côté, a group of ladies in the Ottawa area, have an affinity for Victorian Tea Party's and wanted to support CFAS by sharing their passion. Hence, on June 13th CFAS will be hosting its first Annual Victorian Tea Party which will support, not just the foundation, but nine other charities in the Ottawa and surrounding areas. For more details please download the flyer.
How it Works! Fifty percent of the proceeds (after the cost for hosting teas are covered) will help build The One Health Fund. The remaining 50% will be split equally among the following charities multiplying the good created by our volunteers, donors, sponsors, and participants.
Cost: $35.00 per person (To Register click the Join the Party Button Above)
