The Edmonton Community Foundation strengthens the community by connecting donors to charities and causes that are important to them. It does this through the power of endowment funds. Thanks to the endowment funds set up by ECF’s donors, the Foundation is able to provide financial support through grants to hundreds of charities in Edmonton and further afield. In 2015 alone, ECF distributed over $21 million to charitable causes. It’s good to be well endowed!
Beyond distribution of funds, ECF encourages innovation, visionary thinking, and leadership. That is why we continue to build relationships with donors, charities, volunteers, and community leaders. Together we will strengthen Edmonton’s community.
