The 2022 Chinook Fund Dinner on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 was oversold and by all accounts everyone had a great time! More importantly, we estimate nearly $40,000 was raised bringing us ever closer to our goal of having a $1million endowment with the Calgary Foundation. In addition to the great conversation, food and wine, we announced our 2022 Chinook Fund Grant recipients and 2022 Chinook Fund Hero.
We have officially changed the name of our endowment fund with the Calgary Foundation to the Chinook Fund for Gender and Sexual Diversity. (Previously, the formal name was the Chinook Lesbian and Gay Fund.)
We believe the name more accurately represents the diversity of our members and was the top choice of our membership.
We will continue to use the abbreviated Chinook Fund as well.
