STAKEHOLDERS COMPLAINTS POLICY
The Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) is committed to supporting the effective and timely resolution of problems and will provide all stakeholders with an open and transparent process to register a complaint.
GIFT ACCEPTANCE POLICIES
The Edmonton Community Foundation was enabled through the Edmonton Community Foundation Act passed by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta in 1971. Revenue Canada subsequently approved its status as a public foundation. The Foundation became truly active in 1989, with the investment of $15 million by three Edmonton families.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which is responsible for approving all fund development, investment and grant-making programs and policies.
The Foundation's Board-approved mission statement is as follows:
The Edmonton Community Foundation exists to help the people of Edmonton and area by encouraging philanthropy and funding charitable activities.
Through contributions from donors, the Foundation assembles and administers permanent pools of capital so the returns can be perpetually reinvested in our community. The Foundation complements and supports other charitable agencies.
WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION POLICY
The Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) is committed to the highest standards of openness, honesty and accountability. In line with that commitment, we expect employees and others that we deal with to come forward and voice any serious concerns they may have about any aspect of ECF's conduct.
