Since 1989, the Red Deer & District Community Foundation has been a 360° grant maker that invests in projects, programs, and organizations to build a stronger central Alberta.
Essentially, we act as a community savings account. We accept donations to over 140 funds, both endowed and non-endowed, that support specific causes across central Alberta. By pooling donations and saving them forever in our endowment funds, we offer community members a way to provide for their chosen causes permanently.
All endowed funds are prudently invested and the earnings are used to provide grants to local non-profit organizations in the arts and culture, health and wellness, human services, recreation, sport, education, and environmental sectors.
