KEA Canada is proud to work with the following organizations. They do meaningful work that makes our world a better place and strengthens our communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to their success.
The Mission of the YWCA Banff is empowering women, girls and our community through leadership development, advocacy, and provision of relevant programming and services. For almost 100 years the YWCA of Banff has been the leading resource for women and their families fleeing domestic violence and for providing safe, affordable housing for Bow Valley community members.
The Westside Legacy Trail will be a multi-recreational, human-powered, paved trail connecting the communities of Invermere and Fairmont Hot Springs. It will be a meaningful addition to an already active community and residents, businesses and local governments will contribute in their own unique way to help build this world-class trail amenity.
With a population of 21,000 (and growing), Fort St. John is the largest city in Northeastern BC. We are proud to be supporting the City of Fort St. John in establishing a new Community Foundation.
The Bow Valley Waste Management Commission operates a number of programs that lead the Bow Valley towards improved waste management, including: a self-sufficient Class III Landfill Operation; recycling drop-off for 15 different materials; a Construction and Demolition Waste Tracking and Recycling Program; on-site processing into value-added products for materials such as wood, asphalt, concrete, compostable yard and garden waste; and recycling of Bow Valley scrub and brush to supply the bio filter material required to start up the City of Calgary compost facilities.
Accommodation and basic emergency services for women in crisis (with or without children), with priority given to women fleeing abuse. Safe, secure, short-term accommodation is provided in a respectful and confidential manner. All services are free.
MACSI empowers individuals to make healthy choices in their communities through a continuum of addictions services, including education, treatment and aftercare to restore a balanced, harmonious, productive lifestyle. MACSI values Métis heritage, embraces our future and envisions a world for all people free of the harmful effects of addictions.
Community foundations are in a unique position of trust and possibility, sitting at the intersection of wealth and poverty; of doors open to possibility and small windows that may be closing. They are a hinge, a connector, and a believer in the power of inclusion.
By working with philanthropic partners (including donors, volunteers, local front line service agencies), BCCF helps people, programs and priorities find project funding.
