Where do we get our funding?

The Beacon Heights Community League has several sources of funding for different initiatives and projects.

  • Our Annual Membership Drive is an important fundraiser. Having a large number of members helps us obtain more external funding.  Membership fees help to offset the cost of community programs.
  • We apply for grants through the City of Edmonton, the Province of Alberta and the Government of Canada.
  • We host a casino every two years that is operated by our volunteers.  This fundraising initiative provides the bulk of our funds for our operating budget.
  • Fees from the sports teams assist in the cost of sports, such as uniforms, umpire fees, coaching clinics, etc.
  • Raffle tickets, Grey Cup Pool tickets, etc.
