The Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta is grateful to have received a donation of $15,000 to the Youth Endowment Fund through the generosity of Canadian Natural Resources Limited. The original donation to this fund is never spent, rather, the investment income earned each year is distributed through the Youth in Philanthropy Program.
“This contribution will have a substantial impact on youth in our community and the charities they support. Thanks to the donation from Canadian Natural, more youth groups will have the opportunity to participate in YiP for years to come.” – Niki Gray, Acting Executive Director
Canadian Natural believes in investing in the communities where they live and work. Their contribution will help support CFSEA’s Youth in Philanthropy (YiP) Program. YiP introduces motivated students to philanthropy and local community development. Students develop teamwork, leadership, research, and communication skills while learning about critical issues in their community. In 2021, a record number of school groups participated and helped distribute $19,800 to 15 unique charities.
“Canadian Natural is proud to support the Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta’s Youth in Philanthropy Endowment Fund. This initiative is an important opportunity for youth in the community to learn about local challenges and to make a positive impact by helping those directly in need.” – Curtis Scherger, Canadian Natural, Operations Superintendent (Medicine Hat area)
