2019 At A Glance
We are proud of the impact we have made in year one thanks to the tremendous support of our donors. We are eager to continue empowering prosperity in communities across Alberta for years to come.
For now, we are proud to share the following stories of the impact made possible thanks to the generosity of our donors.
In our first ever granting cycle in the spring of 2019, The AIMCo Foundation was proud to be able to support two valuable financial coaching programs with $40,000 each. United Way Capital Region’s Empower U Program and Momentum’s Aspire Calgary Program both offer participants an opportunity to not only learn how to manage their finances, but receive the coaching and support to implement the things they have learned and truly make a lasting change in their lives.
In our second granting cycle of the year, we were able to connect with three valuable community programs: Catholic Social Services, MacEwan University and Action for Healthy Communities. All three of these organizations are undertaking programs that promote financial empowerment and prosperity in our communities using a total of $80,000 in funding from The AIMCo Foundation. They also each support a different audience, ensuring our reach and impact are as far-reaching and diverse as possible.
In 2019, The AIMCo Foundation was able to support students at the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, MacEwan University, NAIT and SAIT with $66,000 in scholarships. These students are pursuing a formal education in a finance-related discipline. Our scholarships range from certificate and undergraduate degree programs all the way up to MBA and PhD levels, meaning we can make an impact on the broadest spectrum of students and learning.
The AIMCo Foundation is grateful for the generous donations provided by our donors. Our commitment to them is transparency. Donors will always know exactly where their money goes and the impact it has. Once a year, we will publish a report detailing exactly that.
