The Westlock Community Foundation is more than a source for dollars. Our intent is to inspire and empower people to invest in and build our community. We believe that we can help establish awareness and understanding of the important role that everyone plays. We envision giving a voice to all members of the community and challenge everyone to participate in something bigger than ourselves.
Westlock has always had a reputation for "punching above our weight" - our vision is to build on this legacy. Resilient Communities are Strong Communities. Investing and supporting all facets of community and civic life is at the core of who we are. An ongoing community assessment will provide a baseline from which to evaluate challenges and strengths to develop a strategic approach for our future. The Westlock Community Foundation will build capacity by increasing capabilities, resources and collaborating with local organizations. The Foundation will provide an avenue to enhance and amplify the collective efforts and ideas of our community and be a resource for funding, skills and information.
The Westlock Community Foundation will be a powerful tool to influence the future direction off the region. We will work for the benefit of all, from youth through seniors. We will in invest in community health and wellness, arts and culture, education, environmental sustainability, leisure and recreation and ongoing economic prosperity. The Foundation will be a conduit to combine the philanthropic goals of our citizens and the needs of our community. Our focus will be to influence change upstream and address the root causes of issues.
Our community is the result of the hard work and the extraordinary efforts of our pioneers. This spirit lives on and the torch has been passed onto this generation and to future generations. The Westlock Community Foundation is a catalyst to aid in this ongoing community building.
