Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF), part of a comprehensive network of Canadian community foundations, acts as a bridge between donors and greater Edmonton charities to help create and maintain a strong, vibrant community for generations to come.

Through permanent endowment funds, the Foundation disburses 3.5 per cent of assets annually to greater Edmonton charities. As well, the Foundation takes a direct role in selected community initiatives that help further the vision of a strong community.

Since inception until 2011, the Foundation has allocated more than $139 million to enhance and strengthen our community.

The Foundation:

  • gives donors choices: how to make their gift, how that gift might be recognized and what charitable causes they may wish to support;
  • helps professional advisors provide added value to their clients;
  • provides financial support for a wide variety of charitable causes; and
  • participates in broader community initiatives, providing broad-based expertise throughout the charitable sector.

All applications must be received by the Edmonton Community Foundation by the deadline.
