Sharing Our Prosperity

On April 1st, 2021 we established an Emma Smiley legacy fund with the Victoria Foundation

Sharing our prosperity guidelines:

The Victoria Truth Centre supports organizations that help: young people and families in need; providing healthy lifestyle support such as food, healthy living, and/or shelter. The VTC supports helping develop future leaders, guided by Rev.
