Established in 2010, the Jonas Konge Memorial Fund was established to support NWT residents pursuing post secondary studies in medicine or nursing, and provide support to the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation to fund the purchase of new capital equipment or programs in the area of Pediatrics or Neo-natal care.
In existence since 1993, the Yellowknife Community Foundation is the leading philanthropic organization in Yellowknife. A registered charity, the Foundation was formed in 1993 to provide residents (and former residents) with a means of supporting projects in our community for the enduring future. The Foundation is not singularly dedicated to any specific area of support. It embodies a simple concept – that people working together can make a difference. Donations are placed in a capital fund. The money, invested over time, will grow and will continue to have an impact long after the original gift is made. Donations to the Foundation are eligible deductions for income tax purposes.
