Strategic Priorities

Community Leadership: Continuing to engage hearts and minds to builder a stronger, smarter, more caring network is accomplished in part through strengthening our philanthropic culture. As a member of Community Foundations of Canada, our community extends beyond our core catchment area of Banff, Canmore, and surrounding area. Leadership is accomplished through outreach, engagement, storytelling, programs, and encouraging ‘right relationships.’

Grants and Scholarships: Stewarding donations and distributing them to community organizations is the cornerstone of the work of the Banff Canmore Community Foundation. We strive to increase our ability to fund worthwhile initiatives that meet the priorities of our locale, while remaining nimble, flexible — maximizing the impact of our programs.

Financial Sustainability: Financial stewardship broadly refers to all financial aspects of our work thus ensuring operational and granting sustainability for the Banff Canmore Community Foundation. Effective stewardship of endowed funds; financial management of annual budget; fund development; stewardship of donor relations; transparency and accountability are central to our mission.
