As Northerners continue to weather a record-breaking wildfire season this summer, the Resilient Communities Fund will help impacted communities with recovery and rebuilding.
Facilitated by the Yellowknife Community Foundation, the Fund will support communities across the Northwest Territories in long-term recovery efforts to rebuild after emergency response and environmental crisis. The Yellowknife Community Foundation (YKCF) is calling for donations to the Fund to support projects and programs identified by local communities when they are ready for rebuilding.
The Northwestern Alberta Foundation will also be flowing through contributions received from individuals and businesses who have expressed a desire to help their northern neighbours.
Quote from Laurie Gault, Chair of the Yellowknife Community Foundation – “Our hearts go out to everyone being affected by the wildfires that are currently threatening communities throughout the Northwest Territories. Where we can, YKCF wants to provide a pathway towards recovery and rebuilding efforts.”
Donations can be made online. All funds received to the Resilient Communities Fund will support communities across the NWT with their recovery, rebuilding and resiliency efforts.
The Yellowknife Community Foundation was formed in 1993 as a charitable organization that inspires and enables impactful giving in Yellowknife and the NWT. We strive to align donor interests and community needs through evidence-based grant-making, fundraising, strategic investment, public education and community relations. Through the generosity of people in our community, we aim to be a catalyst for sharing, supportive and connected communities.
