The Community Assistance Fund was established by the Junior League of Edmonton to help meet critical or emergency areas of need in the community. Grants are not accompanied by a commitment of volunteer time and vary in amount. The total fund does not typically exceed the sum of $8,000 in any given year and may be divided among more than one applicant.

The program/project must fit within the current focus area of the League—“Children, Youth and Families at Risk.”
Organizations requesting funds must be registered charities, operate within the Edmonton area, support goals that are congruent with those of the League and have a specific and defined use for the funds requested. Requests will not be considered for operating or administrative expenses, salaries, funding drives, political campaigns or individuals. Applicants must not have received a grant from the Community Assistance Fund for a three-year period prior to the current application.
Grant applications are accepted until April 30th. Applications are then reviewed, and the proposed awards are submitted to the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission for approval to allocate casino-generated funds to the recipient organization(s). Funds are usually released in April and may be presented at a general meeting of the League.
Applicants must submit a completed application accompanied by supporting materials. Grant recipients must submit a written report within six months, providing an evaluation of the project, a financial accounting and the recognition provided to the Junior League of Edmonton as a funder.
