Barrett Family Foundation Receives Outstanding Foundation Award from AFP Toronto

Each year, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Toronto Chapter honours leadership in philanthropy through its awards program. These awards celebrate the outstanding contributions of time, leadership and financial support of a special group of Canadians who set new benchmarks of excellence in the acts of giving and volunteering.

This year, The Barrett Family Foundation is being honoured in the Outstanding Foundation or Philanthropic Group award category. This category recognizes a private foundation that has demonstrated outstanding commitment through financial support and through encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and local, national and/or international community involvement. Humber nominated The Barrett Family Foundation for their extraordinary commitment to the college, as well as other organizations in Canada and abroad.

Taking the time to recognize the impact of philanthropy has never been more important than during COVID-19. While the AFP’s 2020 Philanthropy Awards celebration will be held virtually this year, it is vitally important to shine a light on the power of philanthropy to impact our community and country for the better.

The contributions of The Barrett Family Foundation, Bob Barrett and Francine Rouleau-Barrett to Humber have touched the lives of students, faculty, staff and industry partners throughout our community. Humber extends its congratulations to all recipients of the AFP 2020 Philanthropy Awards.
