Our Team

Rotary Acknowledgement


The Rotary Clubs of Edmonton have been a pillar of support for Fort Edmonton Park from its inception.

Without Rotary, Fort Edmonton Park would not exist!

The Rotary Clubs of Edmonton are valuable founding partners and stewards to our development and fundraising achievements. Contributions by local clubs in the first five decades of the Fort Edmonton Foundation have totalled more than $500,000. Their contributions have included: Fort Edmonton, Henderson’s Barn, Kernohan’s Millinery, Hutchings & Riley Harness Shop, Henderson’s Farmhouse, Threshing Bee, Harvest Fair, Case Steam Tractor, Jasper House Hotel, Railway Station, Rumley Oil Pull, Motordrome, and the A-1 Business car. Other smaller projects were also funded.

For our current Capital Campaign, Rotary has committed $2 million for All Aboard Campaign towards the revitalization of the train station at Fort Edmonton Park.


Capital Campaign Cabinet

The Capital Campaign Cabinet is a collaborative steering committee of volunteers representing our Boards of Directors – Fort Edmonton Foundation (FEF), Executive Director, Fort Edmonton Foundation, as well as community stakeholders.

Community and Government Relations

The ECGR Committee is responsible for high-level strategic stakeholder relations planning including relationship development with government, policymakers and policy influencers, community service clubs, and volunteers. This committee identifies, develops and maintains the coordination and support of these relationships in the interests of the Foundation, capital project initiatives, and strategic plan priorities.


Experienced financial experts ensure effective communication with internal and external auditors, management, and the board. Responsibilities include ongoing review of statements, reports, policies, budgets, insurance policies, indemnities and investment performances.


This committee governs the process for board member recruitment, orientation and education. They oversee committee assignments, succession planning, and board evaluations as well as governance best practices, bylaw changes and reviews. It is also their duty to develop succession plans for senior personnel and to generate a selection committee for the position of Executive Director.
