Judith Donald Memorial Fund
This memorial fund has been established to honour the caring spirit of Judith Donald to support her charitable passions of family and social causes, focusing on women and children at risk, homelessness, and animal welfare.
Judi met her beloved husband Eldon in Montreal in 1972 and soon after they made their way to British Columbia to begin their west coast life. Her career involved working at the BC Institute of Technology as assistant to the Dean of Business and then at the Township of Langley as assistant to mayors, municipal administrators and various senior managers.

- 2011 - 2013 Director, Pitch-In Canada and Pitch-In BC

In addition to Judi's formal charitable work, she also volunteered personal time to support the values that she held dear. She was an activist who fought for many causes and contributed her time, efforts and money to help make the world around her a better place. Her interests were diverse and encompassed a wide range of causes.
She also adored Annie, her German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP), and Tessa, her past GSP rescue. She had a longstanding love for all animals and their welfare and was a proud supporter of dog rescue organizations.
We welcome you to make a donation in honour of Judith Donald.
