The Melton Family | Growing Through Giving

The Melton Foundation is committed to serving the charitable needs of the community in an efficient, informed, and compassionate manner.

The Melton Foundation supports those who not only need a hand out, but also a hand up. The Foundation has a mandate to act philanthropically, by giving locally (within Alberta) to help build and maintain strong, healthy and sustainable communities.

The Melton Foundation was created to give tangible expression to the philanthropic beliefs of the founders, Stan and Peggy Melton. These same beliefs continue to bind the Melton families together. Good fortune is not a promise, and through giving and sacrifice, our collective lives are enriched.


This is the legacy that moves the Melton family forward, together.

  • The Melton Foundation supports not just by giving a hand out, but also a hand up.
