Our Five-Year, $500,000 Commitment

The foundation was created in 2014 as a way to distribute archived equity funds back into rural communities where UFA has a presence.

We are committed to improving the sustainability of farmers and ranchers in Alberta by supporting projects that support rural communities.


For more than 100 years UFA has been a part of Alberta farms and communities.

Through our archived equity funds, UFA is continuing to support farmers and ranchers by distributing $500,000 of archived equity over five years through the Rural Communities Foundation. In its first year, the foundation supported projects in Onoway, Delia and Paradise Valley. We are looking forward to partnering with community leaders and supporting projects which ensure sustainable communities throughout the province.
