Charlotte County Archives raises funds for important ongoing initiatives

St. Andrews, NB —The board members of the Charlotte County Archives (CCA), located in St. Andrews, set themselves an ambitious goal of raising $25,000 for their 2021 Annual Campaign for ongoing expenses at the Archives. With the help of the community, board members, and a welcome challenge from the J. T. Clark Family Foundation, they exceeded their goals. This has set the CCA on a sustainable footing for the upcoming year and they are grateful to everyone who helped them get there.

In response to the Archives’ Fall newsletter sent to all Archives members, John Clark contacted Board Chair, Franklin Cardy, and offered a matching grant challenge. Says Franklin, “Mr. Clark told us that if we were able to raise $10,000 in new money for our Endowment Fund, which is held at the Fundy Community Foundation, before the end of the year, the J. T. Clark Family Foundation would match that amount. We got that message out to the community and managed to raise just over $10,000 for the Endowment Fund, in addition to what we had already raised to that point. The community and board members were very generous in helping us raise those extra funds. This in turn was met with the matching grant of $10,000 from the Clark Foundation. The generosity and effectiveness of John Clark’s challenge cannot be over-emphasized. We are so very grateful to him and to the community.” Adds board member Donne Smith, the lead on the CCA fundraising committee, “Our fundraising success shows the strength of commitment that our community is showing to the Charlotte County Archives. That strong commitment helps to sustain the important work that we do, preserving the documentary heritage of the County for generations to come.”

By strengthening the Endowment Fund at the Charlotte County Archives, the J. T. Clark Foundation has helped the Archives create a way for donors to leave a legacy gift to the Archives. Gifts such as these, along with continued operational fundraising, will help to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the CCA. With only limited grant money available from all levels of government, the Charlotte County Archives continues to need and appreciate community support.

“Ride Don’t Hide” Partnership With CMHA of NB

Ride Don't Hide - CMHA of NB


The J T Clark Family Foundation partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick (CMHA of NB) launching a new fundraising event in June 2021 “Ride Don’t Hide”.

Lori Wheeler, CMHA of NB’s Director of Communications, states “New Brunswickers are struggling with their mental health more than ever. Demand for mental health programs and services are at an all time high. We are staring down an echo pandemic of poor mental health”.

“But at the same time, mental health has never been as widely and as openly discussed. Where stigma used to keep people struggling in silence, we now see a growing openness and awareness around the importance of mental health. We know that one in five New Brunswickers will struggle with a mental health issue in any given year. But all five in five New Brunswickers – every single one of us – has mental health. And now, more than ever, its clear to all that we must protect, promote, and celebrate our mental health.”

The J T Clark Family Foundation issued a $30,000 matching challenge for the “Ride Don’t Hide” event in memory of friend and family member Tim Richardson.

During the month of June, New Brunswickers from all regions of the province participated in activities and raised $31,288.25 which exceeded the $30,000 goal set by CMHA of NB.

Did JTCFF Challenge Make A Difference?

A few quotes from Betty Daniels. (Ex. Dir.) regarding the role of JTCFF in success of MOW campaign: 

Dec. 30th: I absolutely cannot believe this success, and I know JTCFF’s early effort on our behalf truly helped us reach this amazing point.  It is beyond what I had even hoped for, and it is going to make such a huge difference to us as we head into the New Year.  

Jan. 11th: This is unbelievable – includes mail in donations and online through Canada Helps. This total does not include the donation from the Clark Family Foundation. I’m speechless at the generosity, and again so grateful for truly helping us jump start this.  It is so very helpful as we begin our budgeting process for the coming year.  

Social Media Post in December: “Let’s start this Monday off with some AMAZING News! We have been absolutely blown away by our community support this Letter Campaign. To date, our campaign has brought in almost $44,000! This has been an absolute record for us and could not have been without our amazing community donors, such as the J.T. Clark Family Foundation. They helped to encourage further donations in the beginning of the campaign, and generously donated $10,000 to our campaign total. Our organization is simply speechless when it comes to the generosity and heart of this community. We are so appreciative of your kindness this season – something to help bring holiday cheer to the end of an unpredictable year!”

Fredericton and Oromocto Students Try Like Terry!

Posted on: March 3rd, 2021.

A global pandemic couldn’t stop 13,000 students in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas from safely supporting their community. Thirty schools with students aged 3-18 took part in the 2020 Terry Fox School Run. They had an exciting, big goal in front of them that would help to increase their positive impact on people facing cancer: if they could collectively raise $20,000, The JT Clark Family Foundation would contribute an additional $20,000.

We’re proud to announce that these amazing young people surpassed their goal and raised $23,336 in support of life-changing cancer research. Including the donation from The JT Clark Family Foundation, these students have raised an incredible $43,336!

During a challenging year, Terry’s Fox’s legacy of hope has helped to inspire people of all ages to do their best and support those in need.

Thank you to these outstanding young people and their communities for supporting Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer.
