Strategic Granting Guide

The Strategic Granting Guide (SGG) connects Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) donors to timely and important projects in our community.

SGG is a vetted list of current projects that donors can support with their fund. Projects range in scope and focus, but each addresses an emerging need in the community. Projects are presented at a time when funding will have a tangible impact.

SGG does not ask donors to give more money; it helps connect donors to new projects that they may not have been aware of. It is also a way for ECF to support charities by making more people aware of their work.

The Guide includes projects from:

ECF regularly receives more applications than we are able to fund, but donors’ participation in SGG can help ECF support more worthy projects.
