Your Community Matters – Knowledge is Powerful

The best part about our work at Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta is when we have the honor of connecting our donors to the causes they are most passionate about!  This month, it’s Student Awards!!

Where possible, we engage with the people connected to developing the fund to evaluate the applications we receive!  Along with our evaluators, I am humbled by the stories of perseverance and resiliency we learned about in so many of the applications!  This time in our world is so uncertain for post-secondary students.  Providing students in our region with financial assistance is one of the ways we can help support our community, now and forever. 

This year, we had 49 applicants, a substantial increase over past years, proving the need for support across Northwestern Alberta!  Approximately $30,000 was awarded, propelling students in our region forward to meet their educational goals!  Stay tuned to our social media to see stories showcasing these unique achievers and giving thanks to their many supporters! 

Wishing all our students a safe, healthy and productive school year!
