A healthy and vibrant community enabled by long-term philanthropy.


Wood Buffalo Community Foundation will enhance quality of life in our region by supporting community members and organizations in building long term, mutually beneficial relationships between donors and grantees. We provide grants to improve and enhance the stability and sustainability of the community.

We will achieve this mission by:

  • Connecting people, families and companies with causes that inspire them. We pool resources, knowledge and expertise, working with others for even greater impact.

  • Working alongside donors to help them realize their philanthropic goals by matching their interests with community needs and finding innovative ways to make every donation count.

  • Providing professional and reliable fund management with the flexibility to respond to changing needs and priorities. 

  • Funding local initiatives in a wide variety of areas including health, education, arts, culture, social services, sports, recreation, the environment or other emerging community needs.

  • Collaborating with others in the community to prioritize issues and find solutions.

  • Taking a long-term view of our community to address complex issues now and for generations to come.
