Get Involved
We were formed in 1993 by a dedicated group of volunteers who wanted to find a way for interested individuals and organizations to support projects in our community that embody a simple concept - that people working together can make a difference.

Annual gala

An unforgettable evening of dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions held annually on the Valentine’s Day weekend.


We are always on the search for photographers and videographers to capture our work in the community for social media.


We look for volunteers year-round for our special events and for committee support. If that's you, get in touch!

New Fund

We offer a range of opportunities to recognize individuals, organizations or companies through the creation of a new fund.


If you don't have time to volunteer, you can help us by donating today through CanadaHelps! You get your tax receipt straight away!

The Yellowknife Community Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors of respected community leaders who are appointed by a committee of community representatives. This leads to nominations from a cross-section of community interests so the appointed Board members will always have the needs of the community at heart.

The Board of Directors publishes an annual report to provide the community at large with an update on its activities. The Foundation is a member of Community Foundations of Canada. Meet our Board or if you’re interested in joining, please Contact us.
