Past Community Assistance Fund Recipients


In an effort to enable the League to increase its positive impact on the community, the board of directors established the Community Assistance Fund in February 1986. The fund is designed to accommodate outside requests for financial assistance without committing League volunteers. It allows the League to cooperate with and participate in the greater Edmonton community in a more flexible manner.
