Published annually by the Community Foundation, Giving together is a magazine that highlights stories on donors and charities throughout the southwest.
This year is a special one for our organization as we celebrate 50 years of service to our region. Through the following stories, you’ll meet interesting people who are making a difference in their communities in many ways.
As well, you'll see how, through prudent investment and stewardship, committed volunteers over the past 50 years have turned $297 into a $24 million endowment fund. In the past year this fund has returned more than $700,000 to community organizations in Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta.
