In 2019, Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) granted a record amount: more than $26.2 million. These grants helped more than 700 registered charities and 600 students, primarily in the Edmonton area, to make our community more sustainable, healthy, engaged, and vibrant.

Since its inception in 1989, ECF has granted more than $271 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.
