Red Deer and District Community Foundation accepting fall grant applications

The Red Deer and District Community Foundation has begun accepting fall grant applications.

”With these grants, we empower our charitable partners to build a vibrant and healthy community and deliver programs and services that benefit all central Albertans,” the foundation said in a release Wednesday.

The RDDCF aims to support community building through philanthropy.

“Our annual grant program is one of the creative ways we do that,” the foundation release said.

Every year, it offers central Alberta charities an opportunity to access grant funding that supports community improvement in the arts and culture, health and wellness, human services, recreation, sport, education, and environmental sectors.
