Community Builder Dinners

What is a Community Builder? We know them as people who believe in making their community a better place and support local causes in remarkable ways.

Each year, except during the recent Covid-19 Pandemic, the Battle River Community Foundation celebrates local individuals or couples who have lived their lives with a commitment to serving their community. These well-deserving people are given the title of Community Builder and honoured at a fundraising dinner in the community they serve.

The goal of these special evenings is to recognise those who share the “giving back” philosophy that is so integral to the success of the Battle River Community Foundation and raise money for worthy local causes, while also giving people in the Battle River Area insight into how the Foundation supports local communities.

A fund named for each Community Builder is held by the Foundation, that fund continues granting in their name, honouring their contributions to their communities forever. Many donors continue to make contributions to these funds to honour Community Builders.
