Project Advance launches 2016 campaign

Special grant program focuses on corporal works of mercy

The annual fundraising campaign of the Archdiocese of Vancouver honours the Holy Jubilee Year of Mercy with a special refugee contingency fund and a special video.
"Every year, Project Advance has a special grant funding program where we distribute $100,000 to various organizations that apply to receive funding," Brett Powell noted at the 2016 Project Advance luncheon. "The refugee contingency fund is a new fund that will allow parishes sponsoring refugee families to augment their work in refugee settlement."
A new webpage was released alongside of the video, and lists where the funding goes, answers to frequently asked questions, and more information regarding Project Advance.
