Banff Canmore Community Foundation (BCCF) 2022 community grants is the largest community-led grant program in the Bow Valley. The financial support of community-minded residents and businesses is channelled to projects with the greatest potential to address our most pressing challenges and to drive positive change.

This year, 24 organizations from across the Bow Valley that are working to address root causes of systemic challenges will receive a combined total of nearly $140,000 in grants. Many of these exciting projects are rooted in the understanding that our community’s challenges and opportunities are interrelated. They’re showing how diversity and radical inclusion can unlock our potential for real and lasting change here in the Bow Valley.

We’re also reminded of the work that still needs to be done. BCCF’s newsletter shines a light every month on our shared challenges and how our community is rising to meet them.

And every one of us can help strengthen the Community Grants program and propel that positive change by contributing to the Bow Valley Community Fund.

This is a program that is from our community and for our community – I hope you’ll all join me in recognizing this important moment.
