The Madge Hogarth Foundation


In 1974, Madge Hogarth established this Foundation to assist clergy and their congregations in isolated communities in Western Canada's far North. Madge was deeply involved in churches in northern Canada, and in local and national charities.

Her legacy for the North is The Madge Hogarth Foundation, and through it her faith and generosity live on.

Over the years her Foundation has assisted clergy and their small congregations to reach objectives they feel important in the practice of their religion and in the conduct of their lives within a Christian congregation.

The Fund's Advisory Committee meets every spring to review applications to ensure that the funds granting priorities are being met in each approved grant.

 The funding priorities are:

  • to support projects that serve and work with peoples of the north
  • churches with a significant composition of First Nations people
  • churches with ecumenical philosophies or projects with an ecumenical focus
  • collaborative initiatives representing more than one Christian faith
  • churches which make an effort to fund part of the project themselves
  • projects that emphasize outreach to the community
  • demonstrated need
