To assist the personal growth of individuals and families by providing financial
assistance to Edmonton based charitable organizations.
The Minerva Foundation was established in Edmonton in 1977 by a small group
of successful entrepreneurs who shared a desire to contribute positively to
their community. At the heart of the Foundation was the memory of Jean Minerva
Campbell who passed away suddenly in the prime of her life. As a tribute to
her and her personal philosophy of always remembering those families less
fortunate than her own, Jean's family and friends formed the Minerva Foundation,
an organization dedicated to enriching the community and assisting individuals
and families in need. The Foundation provides financial support to a wide
variety of worthy community organizations. Whenever possible, Minerva provides
support in the form of "seed" or bridge funding not ordinarily available from
other more conventional sources. Minerva's donation is used to help the recipient
organization become better established. Minerva is a dynamic organization
that benefits from the experience and advice of its founders as well as the
vitality and energy of its continually growing group of younger supporters.
Thus, Minerva's valuable work continues providing financial assistance and
fostering the well-being of individuals and family.
The Minerva Foundation was recognized as the Foundation of the Year for 2003.
The award was given to Minerva Foundation at the Association of Fundraising
Professionals' Philanthropy Day on November 12, 2003.
