Vital Priorities

Over the past few decades the generosity of Calgarians has been great and the Foundation’s endowment has grown substantially.

With this growth comes a responsibility to lead change. We’re evolving into an entity that can take on some key issues in our community and rally resources around them. We call them our Vital Priorities.

Though we have identified areas that require greater leadership, the work we support is never siloed.  It would be impossible to focus on one single priority because there are connections and crossovers among all the issues we face as a community.  Priorities help focus some of our work, but one thing remains clear: we will continue with our robust 360º grantmaking process to touch every corner of our community. Through multi-staged consultations and extensive analysis of research, five vital priorities were identified.
