“We were all impacted or know someone who suffered from loneliness over the past two years. That’s why we designed Foresters Moments™ which is a refreshed version of Foresters Fun Family activities. By shifting our focus to more frequent, engaging activities in more intimate settings, we’re facilitating relationship building among our members and supporting the overall well-being of their families, and their communities – all of which is critical to Foresters mission,” says Louis Gagnon, Foresters Financial President and CEO.
Beginning on November 1, 2022, Foresters members are invited to apply for Foresters Moments grants to host community activities. The activity categories have been curated to meet the needs of members as we shift to in-person gatherings.

For those who want to host wellness activities, yoga, fitness, and dance sessions are available options. These granting categories as well as more traditional opportunities including theater, parks, and book clubs, were designed to support local businesses with the goal of reducing loneliness and social isolation.
