A Community Catalyst
We work with community and for community by supporting organizations that demonstrate a collaborative approach. We support innovative projects that align with our guiding principles. Not every new idea will work, but we will learn from every project.
Quality of Life
We are committed to strengthening the quality of life in Red Deer and the surrounding area. We build on the strengths of the community and address issues that detract from community wellbeing by supporting organizations that share this goal with us.
We are building a community legacy because we never touch our capital pool of money. While our capital base grows, we use the income earned to support community. We are committed to investing wisely, managing efficiently and looking for ways to maximize resources and results through alliances and partnerships.
The Foundation does not necessarily wait for applications. Through strong community relationships we identify and address issues with other community organizations and district municipalities.
Programs that utilize a strong volunteer force, or are dedicated to supporting volunteers, will be priority for Foundation support.
Independence for Individuals
Community development means building the capacity of individuals to be independent and self-sustaining. We will give strong consideration to projects that support this principle.
