The Rural Alberta Development Fund was a not-for-profit organization that worked with Alberta's change agents to help the province flourish.
Our organization was created as a key outcome in the Government of Alberta's rural development strategy, A Place to Grow, to help rural communities, regional alliances, and organizations kick-start projects that would contribute to the betterment of rural Alberta. In 2007, our organization was capitalized with $100 million from the Government of Alberta to fund innovative rural development projects.
RADF funded all $100 million worth of change and innovation. It has been very exciting watching the growth of rural communities through our 85 funded projects, and we're even more enthusiastic about what the future of our province could look like if another $100 million worth of big ideas were put into action.
