Your Community Matters – December 2020

“The miracle is this – the more we share, the more we have.” ~Leonard Nemoy

As 2020 comes to a close, and we prepare to celebrate the holiday season, albeit much differently this year, I want to express our sincerest gratitude to our many supporters during this year.

The impact has been incredible!  Collectively, with our donors, fund holders, and government support programs, Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta has provided over 1.4 million dollars to our region this year.  This is a tribute to the care and concern we hold for each other and our communities, especially during difficult times. 

This holiday season, we urge you to continue this sentiment as we care for our communities in so many different ways.   The smallest gestures of kindness can mean so much and sustain us as we navigate, helping to provide joy during the holidays and position us for wellness as we move forward to better days!  We are better together and look forward to opportunities to build, connect, inspire and grow with you in 2021.

From our CFNWAB family to yours, we wish you a fantastic holiday season and may the New Year be filled with possibilities!

Warmest wishes,

Laura LaValley, CEO
