GREAT in Greater Forest Lawn

Thank you for a GREAT in Greater Forest Lawn event in March 2017


Watch for our next pitch session and information about the great projects our recipients are doing. All proceeds go to the fund, supporting great ideas from people in the GFL communities!

Thank you for the support of our partners the International Avenue Business Revitalization Zone, United Way of Calgary, and Calgary Foundation in making this grassroots granting initiative possible. Together, we cultivate the GREAT in Greater Forest Lawn by building social capital with seed funding for citizen-led, community-building, creative ideas.

GREAT in Greater Forest Lawn initiative not only financially supports projects based on an open, simple and generous community voting process, it also brings together diverse voices of the community, encourages cross-promotional support of all proposed ideas, and provides a communal lunch.
