is proud to present our latest projects.
April 20 2024
The Andy Polanski Charitable Foundation (APCF) is proud to work with AHS Transplant Services to support patients, families and the Edmonton Human Organ Procurement Exchange (HOPE) Program to embark on an event to both raise awareness of the HOPE program and support organ donor families during a time of greatest need. Although every situation and journey is unique, the pain and grief impacting the surviving family remains consistent. Being able to extend support to an organ donor family through such a difficult and heartbreaking time is a small gesture Andy’s family wishes to extend from one organ donor family to another.
On April 20, 2024, APCF is hosting An Evening of HOPE at the Fort Saskatchewan Normandy Room. A goal has been set to raise $75,000.00 to purchase 50 Gifts of HOPE ($1500.00/gift) to be provided to organ donor families when entering into the HOPE program. Items such as accommodation gift cards, food gift cards, parking passes, toiletry items, comfort items (pillow, blanket, teddy bear & books) are selected to assist with immediate needs during time spent at the hospital. Additional items, such as a memory box, ceramic heart, and donor recognition medal are keepsake items to honor the donor hero and to be treasured by the family members.

APCF Spreading Kindness Campaign
Kicked off in 2020, APCF 's spreading kindness campaign helped support many businesses in our community. This past year in 2023, funds were donated to the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank and Families First to help touch people in need in our community. Over the years we've helped support Ken's Catering's "Feed the Fort" initiative, our Local Food Bank, Fort Saskatchewan's toy drive and helping to recognize young leaders in our community for their volunteerism and strive to give back to our community. This has been a remarkable journey and we are so humbled to be able to give back and support our community.

Footprints to your Future
APCF remains committed to fulfilling the foundation’s vision
‘To make things better, not for ourselves but for everyone around us’.
This vision is solely inspired by the sincere and generous personality of Andy, encompassing his many wonderful attributes and traits that left a mark on those who knew him and continues to inspire many. Andy was a young man with strong family roots, always ready to share in some fun and laughter, and dedicated to working hard towards any goal he set for himself. This resulted in Andy persevering when it came to his high school studies to strive for and reach his individual potential as a student allowing him to pursue a post-secondary education goal of becoming an electrician.
The Andy Polanski Charitable Foundation (APCF) in partnership with ACI Architecture Inc. is very proud to offer a
to a Fort Saskatchewan high school student who has completed their high school requirements and is pursuing a post-secondary education.
