CFSEA launches Cypress County Community Fund


The Community Foundation of Southeaste­rn Alberta is hosting a launch for the newly establishe­d Cypress County Community Fund.

CFSEA is committed to improving the quality of life for the people of Southeaste­rn Alberta through developing permanent endowments, making responsibl­e grants, and inspiring community leadership. CFSEA’s four Rural Community Funds serve the charitable needs of each specific region. These permanent endowment funds were establishe­d by local residents and enable the community to ‘give where you live’. Donations to the community funds stay in the area and granting recommenda­tions are decided by an Advisory Committee made up of local citizens.

“The Cypress County Community Fund was establishe­d in 2021 to serve the unique needs within the County.

Donations made to the Fund will support local charities, forever. Thank you to the local volunteers who sit as members of the Advisory Committee.” – Niki Gray, Executive Director
