What Does the Community Foundation Do?

By helping donors fulfill their charitable & philanthropic goals, we help build a healthy and vibrant community. A registered Canadian charity, the Westlock Community Foundation’s journey started in early 2019 with a generous initial bequest by Albert and Florence Miller. We now manage charitable gifts from generous donors in permanent, income-earning endowment funds, and distribute the investment income earned to the registered charities our donors wish to support.

As a passionate and dedicated organization, our mission is simple yet profound: to nurture, support, and uplift the vibrant spirit of our community through philanthropy and capacity building.

Our foundation serves as a catalyst for positive change, bridging the gap between dreams and reality. With a focus on collaboration, innovation, and inclusivity, we strive to build a stronger, more resilient community that thrives on compassion, creativity, and connection.

Discover a diverse range of initiatives, programs, and projects addressing the unique needs of our community. From empowering local talents and students to providing crucial resources for essential causes, every step we take is fueled by the unwavering commitment to make Westlock and the region a place where everyone can flourish.

As we embark on this inspiring journey together, we invite you to be an integral part of our shared vision. Whether you’re a passionate donor, a motivated volunteer, or a community member seeking support, your involvement in the Westlock Community Foundation transforms dreams into reality.
