A grand gesture is changing lives

Arthur Lightfoot’s support of more than 100 children through CCFC lives on beyond his death

Giving back came naturally to the late Dr. Arthur Stanley Lightfoot. He enlisted in the navy to help his country, served his community through his medical practice and expressed his philanthropy by supporting more than 100 children through Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC), among other charities. Now, 15 years after the 80-year-old’s death, his devotion to the cause lives on in the 15 children still benefiting from the funds he left behind.

The journey
Lightfoot attended medical school at the University of Toronto, thanks to scholarships and a job as a paper boy. He eventually moved to Flint, Mich. and opened a medical practice where he brought hundreds of babies into the world.

Serving his country
Lightfoot enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy in the forties and was posted to a hospital in Dartmouth, N.S. where he attended to Atlantic Command sailors until the end of the Second World War.

Sponsored children
Lightfoot was sponsoring 105 children when he died. Since then, thanks to the bequest he left, the number of children he has helped — in countries, including India, Paraguay and Ethiopia — has ballooned to 183. Interestingly, he only became a CCFC sponsor in August 2000, months before he passed away New Year’s Day, 2001.
