About Our Charity

As a public foundation and member of Canada's 191 member-strong network of community foundations, The Banff Community Foundation connects people with priorities. We help YOU find ways to connect with a variety of worthy projects that are happening in this special corner of Alberta. Our organizational vision aligns with the invitation issued 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.' Community foundations are in a unique position, sitting at the relatively uncommon intersection of wealth and poverty; of doors open to possibility and doors closed; of boundless opportunity on one side and seemingly insurmountable barriers on the other. Our networks and deep local knowledge mean that we can help people, programs and priorities find project funding in Banff and surrounding area. Communities thrive and grow when the contributions of many are pooled. Donors and volunteers trust the foundation to invest their gifts for greatest social impact. 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.
