The 11 United Ways in Atlantic Canada collaborated to launch the Atlantic Compassion Fund (ACF) on March 17th, 2020 shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic sent us all into lockdown. Atlantic Business Interiors was the founding donor of the ACF, matching the first $100,000 in donations across Atlantic Canada.
The goal of the ACF was to meet the basic needs in our community, reduce the impact of further marginalization of our vulnerable populations and bring people back together when the time was right. The first grant was made on March 23rd, 2020 and the final grant was made on January 30th, 2021.
