Racial Equity

Calgary Foundation is committed to the work of anti-racism.

As part of our ongoing efforts to listen and learn from the communities we exist to support, we established the Racial Equity Working Group in September 2020. The Racial Equity Working Group is comprised of a variety of stakeholders affiliated with the Foundation, including staff, board members, volunteers, members of The Stride and Calgary Foundation’s Youth Council.

The Working Group will help guide the Calgary Foundation through a journey of establishing a culture of racial equity – also known as “Equity in the Centre” – focused on the proactive counteraction of race inequities, both inside and outside the organization. Calgary Foundation’s racial equity journey closely intersects and builds on our journey of reconciliation with Indigenous communities.

If your organization or grassroots group is undertaking anti-racism work please explore our granting programs for possible support, or contact us for assistance.
