The Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta is asking local residents to let them know throughout the month of April what the Foundation means to them. The responses can be either emailed, phoned in, or put on the Foundation’s Facebook page. Foundation CEO Tracey Vavrek says they have something special planned for every response they receive.

“For each response that we get, our community foundation is donating five dollars to the Smart and Caring Communities Fund.  As well, in matching of that, our board of directors personally are also donating five dollars.  And as well we have the corporation Nine-Ten come on board and they are also donating five dollars.”

The Smart and Caring Communities Fund supports youth and children initiatives in the region. April is Community Foundation month.
