People working together can make a difference

Who are we?

The Yellowknife Community Foundation is a non-profit organization created by and for the people of Yellowknife. We formed in 1993 to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Yellowknife, and the surrounding area by: identifying and addressing current and anticipated community needs; and, raising, managing, and distributing money from donated funds to meet those needs.

What do we do?

Since 1993, the Yellowknife Community Foundation has been working collaboratively in our community and with community organizations as a trusted partner to fulfil impact philanthropy and bring about positive, systemic and sustainable change. We’ve given out over $2 million since 1996 in grants and scholarships from our $4.9 million capital fund.
