About the Calgary Chinook Fund

 

The Calgary Chinook Fund was established in 2001 by a group of donors to assist in the funding of groups involved in LGBTQ  issues, education and support in the Calgary area.

The group established the Chinook Lesbian and Gay Endowment Fund to raise a fund of money that would be properly invested by the Calgary Foundation, with the income earned on the fund being given away each year as grants. The fund would therefore spin off grants forever, with the grants increasing as the fund (and income on it) grew.

The purpose of the organization is to support and build the LGBTQ Community in Calgary.

The Advisory Committee

The Calgary Chinook Fund members act as the advisory committee and fundraising body. It’s members are from Calgary’s LGBTQ Community. All committee members are donors to the fund. The Advisory Committee decides on the annual allocation of fund recipients.
