Your Community Matters!
At the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta, we know your community matters. 

Your Community Foundation has the pulse on our growing and changing region. Each year, we support a wide range of innovative projects and organizations that are changing people's lives, helping create more vibrant, livable communities. As a Community Foundation, we support causes you care about from ALL areas of the community, providing healthy food for kids, making our communities greener, improving access to post-secondary education, supporting creativity, helping the most challenged members of our communities, and so much more.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website!  We invite you to tour the site and provide your feedback.  Our goal is to take you on a journey on the impact of our partnerships and to inform you on our current activities. 

Warmest wishes,
Tracey Vavrek, CEO
Why should you attend the Nourish the North Event?
Our "Nourish the North" wine reception and auction event provides an exclusive opportunity for you to demonstrate your philanthropic leadership, and make an impact in Your community.    The evening promises to be an unforgettable experience of friends and supporters coming together with a focus on partnering with the Community Foundation.  
Part of the evening's entertainment will be Jowi Taylor.  Jowi is a proud Canadian who inspires discussion about Canada and our history through his guitar nicknamed "Voyager".  Voyager is made from 63 pieces of Canadian history;   like a piece of Wayne Gretzky's hockey stick, a piece of a seat from the Montreal Forum, a piece of the cabin of the first Black Cowboy, a piece of a Stanley Cup ring, a piece of Nancy Green's ski, and even a piece of a championship oyster shucking handle.
As Canadians, we tend to put ourselves in a "box" of Tim Hortons donuts, moose and beavers; but as Canadians we have a rich and diverse story to tell.  The only way we know that story and history is to sit together as a community young and old, to share those stories.  It's about coming together as a community for this unique event to share - let's talk about supporting your community!
