With the Woronuk family homesteading their farm in 1913, Bryan and Sherry are part of an impressive legacy of hard work, determination and dedication to community. To recognize their family’s contributions and continue their legacy of giving back in the Rycroft and Sprit River area, Bryan and Sherry established the Woronuk Legacy Fund in 2013.
Each year the Woronuk Legacy Fund, held at the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta, supports deserving post-secondary students along with projects and programs in the Central Peace area and throughout our region. Seeing the impact of their family Fund firsthand is an amazing inspiration to the Woronuk Family and the impact only continues to grow.
Bryan and Sherry explained, “Being involved in the process of giving back through our family fund is great and completely uplifting. It is wonderful to be a part of the giving process from our fun each year. It gives us so much hope that we will truly make a difference in people’s lives for the future.
We look forward to being a part of supporting people and programs in our community for years to come.”
Giving back through the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta builds stronger communities across our region, today and forever. Whether it is a one-time contribution, giving to a specific cause you care about or establishing an endowment fund in your family’s name, giving back through the Community Foundation is forever.
Currently the Woronuk Legacy Fund grants funds to Spirit River, Eaglesham, Savanna, graduates who demonstrate a sense of community. If you are a student looking to apply for this award, APPLY HERE.
