November 2015

 
"Success is finding satisfaction in giving a little more than you take"
Christopher Reeve

I love when November rolls in; it is the month of days shortening, birds parting, snow beginning to carpet the fields getting them ready for winter. It is a time to go inward and reflect on this year's successes and activities....

Community Foundation Celebrates Giving Tuesday

 Imagine a day dedicated to giving back … around the world, across Canada and in your own community! Giving Tuesday is the opening day of the giving season and the perfect day to consider donating to the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta.

Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving and is coming to Northwestern Alberta on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place after Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday started in Canada in 2013 by a group of organizations including GIV3, CanadaHelps.org, and now includes over 1,900 partners. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join to share commitments, rally for favorite causes and think about others. We invite you to become involved.

Consider making a donation to your legacy fund or in support of a cause important to you. If you have any questions about making a donation please contact us at 1 780 538 2820 or via email. You can also donate through our website via our Online page.  

On behalf of our community, we say thank you for being part of the movement!
