La Fondation franco-albertaine’s mission is to promote, initiate and manage charitable activities to benefit the intellectual, spiritual and social development of the French community in Alberta at every level by helping it achieve financial autonomy.
Since 2007, over 100 endowment funds have been created through La Fondation franco-albertaine. An endowment fund donates only part of its interest annually thus protecting the capacity of the fund to give in perpetuity.
