The Swan Valley Legacy

What is the Community Foundation of Swan Valley? It’s a charitable organization founded by a few dedicated people and managed by an appointed board of local citizens to help individuals invest in building a good place to live, work and play. They fund projects through the invested proceeds of donations. The principal is never spent. That principal, your donation, creates a legacy of ongoing benefits with the Swan River Valley being the sole beneficiary.
The foundation is a vehicle for donors to contribute their cash, memorials, trusts, bequests or real property to create permanent endowments that will benefit the widest possible range of non-profit organizations and initiatives. From hockey uniforms and Ukrainian Dance costumes, to hall repairs and playground equipment, to bursaries and scholarships, the Foundation has been there to help.
Since its inception in 2005, a TOTAL OF $255,300.00 has been distributed in the valley: more than a quarter of a million dollars supporting local projects.
