The Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta (CFSEA) celebrates its 25th anniversary of building better communities. Established in 1992 with a generous donation from John Ignatius, the CFSEA is one of 191 Community Foundations across Canada. 

“We have three overarching goals as we strive to improve the quality of life for the people of S.E. Alberta,” says Executive Director Chris Christie. “Growing our permanent endowment funds; making responsible grants and inspiring community leadership. We champion what matters most to our communities for the future”. 
In addition to dispersing grants to charities, the CFSEA has sponsored initiatives such as Vital Signs, Random Acts of Kindness Day and the Community Knowledge Centre.
June 26 is the official anniversary, but many events are planned over the entire year including the Founders Day Celebration June 6.
“It’s a 1992-themed event,” says Christie.
“In addition to our regular spring grant recipients, we will be announcing our $25,000 Community Catalyst grant winner.” 
“Thousands of donors, board and committee members, volunteers and businesses throughout S.E. Alberta, along with a handful of committed staff, have built the Community Foundation these past 25 years,” adds Mike Anctil, chair of the CFSEA board of directors. “We need to keep the momentum going. Strong communities depend on everyone playing their part — today, tomorrow, forever.”
