The City of Fort St. John is conducting this survey and other public engagements to help guide the creation of a made-in-our-community charitable foundation. [Learn more on our Let's Talk website.]

The creation of a community foundation is among the elements found in the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan adopted by Council. A critical driver of the initiative is a desire by Council to provide long-term support for community challenges.

We are working closely with our existing charitable sector, our business communities, our community non-profits, and our regional stakeholders to examine how we can further enhance our community with a Fort St. John Community Foundation.

We want to hear your opinions on developing a charitable model that can help sustain our region for generations to come.

[Note: This survey will close November 17 at 11 p.m.]
