Chinook Fund Dinner 2020

The Chinook Fund Advisory Committee has made the difficult decision to not host any events in 2020.  The COVID-19 pandemic is causing too much uncertainty for us to proceed with planning one or more events this year.

While we take a pause on hosting events, organizations in our local LGBTQ community may be particularly vulnerable this year, which is why the pause on events should not equate to a pause in building the fund for today and the future.

COVID-19 has changed everything, including how we will fund raise for the Chinook Fund this year.  Watch for a campaign that does not expose anyone to the virus in the Fall, when we normally host the dinner, in an effort to continue to build our endowment.

Chinook Fund Dinner 2019

The 2019 Chinook Dinner will be on October 24th at Skyline in Kensington.

We will again be buying attendees dinner and in return we request a 100% tax deductible donation (provided the donation exceeds $25) to the Fund, which is administered by the Calgary Foundation.

At the dinner our annual grants are awarded and the 2019 Hero Award will be presented to a Calgary area group or person whose contributions to our community warrant receiving this special recognition.

Last years dinner was ‘sold out’ so register early!

Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor of the dinner,  TD  for it’s generous grant and assistance to make this event possible!
