The TELUS Calgary Community Board was launched in July 2006 and is chaired by Ken King. The TELUS Calgary Community Board has an annual donation budget of $500,000.
Since inception, the Calgary Community Board has donated $4.3 million to 267 projects. In 2012, it donated $500,000 to 29 projects.
What’s unique about this community board is that funding decisions are made by volunteer board members who work with TELUS to identify and fund grassroots programs of charities operating in the Calgary community. Each board member brings a unique skill set and has an outstanding background of experience in a specific focus area – specifically arts, culture, health, environment, sports and/or working with youth. TELUS provides the funding and some outstanding community leaders who work at TELUS. Together these community champions decide on which projects have the highest impact on the youth of Calgary.
We hope your organizations will apply for funding. Below are some guidelines to help you decide if you should put your project forward for consideration.
- The charity applying must be a Canadian charity that is registered with Revenue Canada and has a valid RR#
- The project you are submitting has a clearly defined focus on youth
- The project addresses a pressing community need
- The project is based in Calgary and will show benefit for Calgary youth.
