The Guiding Principles of the Red Deer & District Community Foundation:

- A Community Catalyst: The Foundation works with community and for community by supporting organizations that demonstrate a collaborative approach. The Foundation supports innovative projects that align with the guiding principles.

- Quality of Life: The Foundation is committed to strengthening the quality of life in Red Deer and the surrounding area. The Foundation builds on the strenghts of the community and addresses issues that detract from community well being by supporting organizations that share this goal.

- Stewardship: While the Foundation's capital base grows, it uses the income earned to support community. The Foundation is committed to investing wisely, managing efficiently and looking for ways to maximize resources and results through alliances and partnerships.

- Proactive Attitude: The Foundation does not necessarily wait for applications. Through strong community relationships the Foundation identifies and addresses issues with other community organizations and district municipalities.

- Volunteer Support: Programs that utilize a strong volunteer force, or are dedicated to supporting volunteers, will be a priority for Foundation support.

- Independence for Individuals: Community development means building the capacity of individuals to be independent and self-sustaining. The Foundation will give strong consideration to projects that support this principle.
