Reimagining Community Together – February 2022

The Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta serves a broad region stretching from our northern and western provincial borders, east to Slave Lake, and south to include Fox Creek and Grande Cache! 

We are able to provide grants and awards to all the communities located in our region, as well as create funds that support these areas of our region.

We are looking forward to seeing you in your community this year!  We have set a goal to reach out to rural communities across our entire region to see how we can help you reimagine community together!  If you see an opportunity in your community for us to learn and connect with you, please contact us!  We know that every community in our corner of Alberta uniquely weaves into the strong fabric of our region! 

Please find us on our social media channels (see top right logos), website, or give us a call to connect and learn about how we can support your community.
