Red Deer Games Foundation



The Red Deer Games Foundation began its history of supporting elite athletes as a result of a donation from the 1975 Alberta Summer Games and additional funds from the legacy of both the 1988 Alberta Winter Games and the 2006 Alberta Summer Games as well as a donation from the BFF Golf Tournament held in 2014. The Red Deer Games Foundation is operated by an independent volunteer Board of Directors and is committed to helping developing athletes achieve success by providing financial assistance through our bi-annual grant program.

Red Deer Games Foundation Financial Assistance Program

The Games Foundation (RDGF) was formed for the purpose of recognizing and encouraging athletic competence and dedication by providing financial assistance.
