The Swan Valley Legacy

The Community Foundation of Swan Valley: The word community means many things to so many people and the world to us. We are a charitable organization fund by local citizens. Our dream: to help people invest in building a community that is a better place to live, work and play. We fund local projects and initiatives through invested proceeds of donations. The principal is never touched.
That principal, your donation, creates a legal of ongoing benefits with the valley being its sole beneficiary. By choosing to use the foundation for memorial donations, a loved one’s memory lives on forever through grants, bursaries and scholarships.
In less than ten years, over $200,000 in grants have helped a variety of organizations, clubs and individuals. And this does not include the bursaries and scholarships that have helped our young people further their education.
