Foundation to outline grant programs at interagency meeting

The Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta will deliver a presentation at the Fort Macleod Family and Community Support Services interagency meeting at 12 noon on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Grants co-ordinator Caitlin Gajdostik will talk about the Community Foundation’s granting programs, the application process, and projects that are eligible for funding.
The meeting will be held at the G.R. Davis Administration Building at 424 20th St. and is open to the public.
The Community Foundation has an endowment of more than $27-million, which is comprised of private donations from generous individuals collected since 1966.
These donations enabled the Community Foundation to support southwestern Alberta with more than $700,000 in grants in the last year.
Applications are accepted at regular times throughout the year, to three granting programs:

  • The Community Priorities Fund.
  • The Henry S. Varley Fund for Rural Life.
  • The Youth in Action Granting Program.

The application intake for each of the three granting programs will resume in January, for a mid-March deadline.
Anyone interested in learning about how the Community Foundation can support a project, or how to support the work of the Community Foundation, is encouraged to attend.
If you have any questions but cannot attend the meeting, contact the Community Foundation’s grants co-ordinator directly at or 403-328-5297.
