The Huff Family Fund

The Huff Family has made extensive donations to worthy causes in all corners of the Quinte region and their home community of Prince Edward County receives the lion’s share of their generosity.

And perhaps the biggest legacy is the announcement of The Huff Family Fund that was established in 2017 and launched in 2018. The Huff Family Fund will encourage and support the incredible work that our many community organizations pursue to make Prince Edward County so special. It is through this commitment that The Huff Family Fund was launched. Over what is anticipated to be the next 15 years, and starting in the Autumn of 2018, there will be a series of grants offered in a broad range of areas. These will help provide the qualifying organizations with the essential financial support needed to complement their missions, their hard work, their volunteers, and so much more. The Huff Family Fund is a commitment to the FUTURE of Prince Edward County. It is about the children, families, and the challenges that many face. It is about helping within our community. It will focus on projects and programs based in Prince Edward County, serving Prince Edward County people.
