WHAT's Happening

Calgary Foundation announces $20 million impact investment fund

President and CEO Eva Friesen and vice-chair of the board of directors Bob Gibson announced the new Community Impact Investments program at the CCVO Connections Conference held April 12, 2016. This $20 million fund is available because of a donation from a visionary anonymous donor. 


Zita Cobb luncheon wrap-up 

The Calgary Foundation welcomed 450 engaged citizens for its intimate luncheon with Zita Cobb in celebration of its sixtieth year as a community foundation. Social media was ablaze with wonderful feedback and comments about Cobb’s message about community-building and philanthropy. Both the Calgary Foundation’s Twitter handle @calgfoundation and the event hashtag #CFlunchwithzita trended on Twitter that afternoon.  

Syrian Crisis Refugee Assistance 

The Calgary Foundation is proactive in its response to crises at both the local and international levels, and it is the mission of the Foundation to facilitate collaborative philanthropy by making powerful connections between donors and community organizations.

The Calgary Foundation provided a grant of $72,000 in December 2015 to Calgary Catholic Immigration Services to hire staff who will coordinate all of the generosity Calgarians are offering to assist with the settlement of these new citizens. For information on how you can help Syrian refugees in Calgary, please visit https://www.srcalgary.ca/
