About us

The Yellowknife Community Foundation was formed in 1993 to provide interested individuals and organizations with a means of supporting projects in our community for the enduring future. It embodies a simple concept – that people working together can make a difference.

Yellowknife Community Foundation

Our mission

Our mission is 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.
