Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES –
Creating Accessible Responsive Education for Sharing
The Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES initiative launched in June 2021. It focuses on expanding the accessibility of the Fort Edmonton Park experience to individuals, community groups, schools, First Nations and Métis groups that may be experiencing social or economic barriers.
The Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES initiative will help people in the community face economic barriers that limit their access to visiting the park because of costs such as admission, meals, and rides. The initiative will also help those encountering challenges to travel to the park due to the cost of transportation when they are coming from further away.
The Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES Initiative will bridge these gaps by providing those in need with admission and an inclusive experience at Fort Edmonton Park.
The first phase of Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES focuses on raising awareness and funds for the initiative in 2021. Phase two will commence in 2022, selecting children, youth, families, and schools for the Fort Edmonton Foundation CARES park experience.
Each donation of $50 will grant a full park experience for a student or youth. With your generous support, you can make a world of difference by bringing recreational and educational opportunities to children, youth, families, and schools with no other support.
