The Melton Family | Growing Through Giving

Giving Guidelines

The Melton Foundation provides capital, operational and program funding for Alberta-based organizations geared to supporting:

      • Children and youth (specifically related to education and wellbeing)
      • Community services (specifically related to physical and emotional health of populations)
      • Special needs groups and projects
      • Religious organizations (primarily Catholic)

All requests, and especially any that fall outside of these giving criteria, are evaluated and decided on by the board of directors annually, in the fall.  Donation requests with sensitive timelines may also be reviewed as needed if there is alignment with the Foundation’s focus areas.

Charities are required to provide reports / updates, which are communicated to the board and may impact future donations.
