Western Communities Foundation
To express our appreciation and demonstrate our support for the western communities where we live and work, Western Financial Group founded the non-profit Western Communities Foundation in 2001 under the Income Tax Act of Canada (Registration #87030 2619 RR0001).
Its mission is threefold:
- Foster the development of community pride through sponsorship of worthy endeavors by teams or individuals in the various communities where Western Financial Group operates.
- Develop and enhance the infrastructure in these communities through public health, education and recreation.
- Assist in the export of community products, expertise and financial support to parts of Canada and the world that are lacking such benefits.
Since its inception, the Western Communities Foundation has raised more than $1 million to help support local communities. Through the Western Communities Foundation, support is provided through Community Infrastructure Grants, Exceptional Achievement Citation Bursary Awards for graduating high school students, support for Habitat for Humanity along with our Vision Care and Defibrillator programs.
