Every day, non-profit and charitable organizations in Alberta help to make a positive difference for so many people. Whether it is through after-school care, recreation programs or assistance for new immigrants, these organizations are at the heart of healthy and strong communities. The government of Alberta has several grant programs and foundations that assist these groups in their efforts.
The Government of Alberta recognizes the arts and culture sector as an essential part of Albertan's quality of life. Support for the arts sector is provided through the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA). The AFA funds, encourages, and supports the development of arts in Alberta.
Nonprofit organizations have access to a number of grants to support project and operating costs through the Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) and the Community Initiatives Program (CIP).
