Western Gives out Infrastructure Grants for 2023

Western Gives out Infrastructure Grants for 2023

High River, AB – Western Financial Group Communities Foundation is thrilled to announce the deserving recipients of this year’s $5,000 Infrastructure Grant, which will further empower our local communities to thrive.

2023 Infrastructure Grant Recipients

Each year, we ask our qualifying community teams to nominate a project within their community to receive a $5,000 Infrastructure Grant; these entries are then entered into a random draw, and winners are drawn in conjunction with the Foundation’s year-end Board of Directors meeting.

On Friday, December 8, our Communities Foundation Board of Directors and team came together to celebrate another successful year and draw the recipients of the 2023 $5,000 Infrastructure Grants.

​In recognition of their continuous support of our Communities Foundation, we recognize our Grand National and National Champion Sponsors with a Community Infrastructure Grant in their name.
