Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - AGF Celebrates 50 Years of Excellence

    Announces $500,000 charitable donation to WWF-Canada

    TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - As part of the American Growth Fund (AGF) 50th
anniversary celebrations, Chairman and CEO Blake Goldring will make a $500,000
charitable donation to WWF-Canada at The Carlu on Wednesday, April 18, 2007 at
5:30 p.m.
    This announcement will be made on the occasion of a special celebration
taking place on the actual anniversary date when the American Growth Fund was
created in 1957. Co-founders C. Warren Goldring and Allan Manford first
launched this fund 50 years ago going on to establish a company that has
offered superior innovative products over the decades. Today it remains a
proudly independent Canadian company with a global reach.
    AGF has a long tradition and well-established history supporting
community causes and helping to protect the environment. Its partnership with
WWF-Canada goes back to the 1980s when the two organizations joined forces to
raise awareness about highly endangered tiger populations. Over the years,
both organizations have worked together to help educate the public about
ensuring a sustainable environment and about WWF's efforts to protect all
endangered species.
    AGF's donation will be used over the next five years to support
WWF-Canada's Living Planet Achievements Fund helping to make sure Canada's
freshwater, oceans, forests and endangered species continue to thrive in a
healthy climate.
