    Westlock Community Foundation

    The Town of Westlock was humbled by and in awe of the generosity of Albert and Florence Miller. In life, they were incredible community members that served and supported many groups and organizations within our region. In their passing, they gifted our community with an unprecedented generous opportunity by naming the Town of Westlock in their estate. 

    In keeping with their spirit of philanthropy and vision of serving the community, we are honoured to share that the Westlock Community Foundation was established as a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to improving our community. 

    Taskforce

    Town of Westlock Council formed a task force comprised of Council representatives and community members at large. The Task force’s mandate was to create the Foundation organization, including the necessary governance structure and the underlying principles and policies to ensure a sustainable organization that can positively impact the Westlock region many years into the future. With a focus on investing in building a strong and resilient community in unique and innovative ways, to link donors with specific community needs and managing long-term endowments to fund strategic granting decisions. 

    Our members contribute time, leadership, and financial support to local initiatives, helping donors give back where their communities need it most.
