Alberta Community Initiatives Program Alberta Lottery Fund

The Community Initiatives Program (CIP) supports project-based initiatives and funding is approved on a matching grant basis. In 2008 and 2009, CIP partnered funding with the Society enabled the Museum School to operate year-round for the first time.

This generous gift is dedicated to support school and public programs in the Royal Alberta Museum’s Wild Alberta Gallery through 2017. A portion of this sponsorship gift is also being used to enrich the visitor experience in the Wild Alberta Gallery by incorporating new technologies and additional features.
