About Our Charity

As a public foundation and member of Canada's 191 member-strong network of community foundations, the Banff Canmore Community Foundation connects people and cares about local priorities. As a connector, communicator, collaborator and catalyst, our mission is: Engaging hearts and minds to build a stronger community.

The national vision of community foundations aligns with the invitation extended by His Excellency, David Johnston 'Join me in imagining our country as it could be... a smart and caring nation where all Canadians can succeed, contribute, and develop their talents to their fullest potential.'

We believe that communities thrive and grow people feel a sense of belonging, when we trust others and are trusted by each others. Community foundations don't just give money away, rather we steward financial resources, work with donors and agencies and add value to our community, always mindful of the impact of our work. The foundation' signature grants program annually supports the community in the areas of: Arts, Education, Environment, Health, Heritage, Recreation and Social Services; the foundation scholarship programs help individuals move in the direction of their dreams; our currency is based in philanthropy and our greatest assets are the people who understand the power of community investment.

By engaging others in conversations, we celebrate, recognize and thank all who choose to make a difference by giving through the foundation. Your community makes YOU. And YOU make your community.
