Community

Events Edmonton partners with Edmonton-based charities & non-profits to help grow their awareness and raise funds for their organizations.

The Taste of Edmonton Community Fund

In 2015, Events Edmonton established the Taste of Edmonton Community Fund to help create and support local initiatives with a focus on:

  • Providing reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable and nutritious food.
  • Assisting young people to become successful in learning and in life.
  • Reducing and/or eliminating poverty in the greater Edmonton area.

Every year, the equivalent value of donated Taste of Edmonton tickets are added to the fund to help grow its contributions to the community. The fund generates a net income that is donated on behalf of Taste of Edmonton to one deserving organization that is working to improve our community and help those in need.

Charitable Non-Profit Volunteer Partners

Events Edmonton strives to give back to the community and are proud to be a supporter of local charitable non-profit organizations. For many years we have built close relationships with organizations, providing opportunities to volunteer as a group at Taste of Edmonton while raising funds to support their organization.  In 2019 over 1,000 volunteers from 22 charitable non-profit volunteer partners provided 8,000 hours of volunteering.  In return $98,500 in honorariums were distributed to the charitable non-proift volunteer partners.
