While the Foundation directly offers some of our own programming, most of our work involves providing grants to partner organizations pursing projects that align with our mission and priorities.

We support work that helps Canadians adapt to social, economic, and technological changes while positively impacting the quality of life in our communities. Our strategic priority is to support projects which educate Canadians about public policy and practice alternatives.

We are a western Canadian foundation with a pan-Canadian mandate. We prefer to develop project proposals in collaboration with applicants rather than reacting to proposals which are already fully developed. We seek opportunities to partner with other grant making agencies.
