The Centre is well aware of the trends and issues in its neighbourhood and works in collaboration with the community to create an environment within its centre and within the community that allows people to feel welcome and safe.” – United Way of Greater Victoria

Individual Donors

We thank all our donors for their thoughtful contributions to our work. In respect of their privacy, the FGCA does not publish or sell a list of our individual supporters.

Donations from our supporters are what makes many of our ‘extra’ programs and services possible. From running a Book Club to sponsoring kids in youth programs to beautifying our garden, each donation makes a big difference in how we serve our community.

We would like to thank each and every donor for their generous contribution to making our community a better place to live, work, and play!

For more information about our donation and fundraising initiatives contact place@fairfieldcommunity.ca or visit the Donate section of our website.

“Apart from the fact that I work at the Fairfield Thrifty Foods, I also live in the community. This has given me the opportunity to not only connect with the Association through support from Thrifty Foods, but also my family has benefited from many different programs over the years. It is great to have the connection with the FGCA because I know that all the support Thrifty Foods gives to the Association goes directly back into the neighbourhood.” – Thrifty Foods
