In 2018, Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) granted a record amount more than $24.9 million. These grants helped more than 600 registered charities and 400 students, primarily in the Edmonton area, making our community more sustainable, healthy, engaged, and vibrant.

Since its inception in 1989, ECF has granted more than $244 million. These grants are possible thanks to the generosity of donors, past and present. Donors at ECF contribute to permanently endowed funds, the income from which supports grants today and forever.
