    The Anglican Charitable Foundation for Children is successor to the Church of England Orphanage that had its beginning in 1855 during the episcopacy of the late Bishop Edward Feild.
    For over one hundred years, the Church operated both a boys' and a girls' orphanage in St. John's to provide a home for Anglican children who came from all areas of Newfoundland and Labrador.
     These orphanages were supported by donations of money or goods from individuals, congregations and parishes as well as from private business enterprises. They were also sustained by extensive farm lands that were cultivated to provide a continuous supply of vegetables and dairy products. Many of the boys and young men worked on these farms during their stay at the orphanage.
     In 1971, all remaining orphanage properties were sold and the funds received were invested for future use.
     At that time and during the episcopacy of the late Archbishop Seaborn, the Anglican Charitable Foundation for Children was incorporated and given the mandate to administer these investments in accordance with the fundamental principles that guided the establishment of the original orphanages.
