Changes to WLD Legacy Fund Guidelines & Application Process

The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce has made changes to its guidelines and application process for the World’s Largest Dinosaur (WLD) Legacy Fund. Effective January 2018, a total of $20,000 will be dispersed annually from the WLD Legacy Fund. A maximum of two (2) $2,500 projects will be funded each quarter. Also, applications will now be accepted on a continuous basis throughout the year with applications remaining in the queue until the end of each calendar year.

Not-for-profit groups and other formally organized groups are encouraged to apply. Funding is available for capital projects that benefit the community, but cannot be used to supplement operating revenue or for deferred maintenance projects.

The World’s Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund invests a portion of funds generated by the WLD attraction and giftshop to enhance and enrich community economic development initiatives in the Drumheller region. To date the Legacy Fund has contributed over $615,000 to 36 community groups for a wide range of projects.
