Ministerial Discretionary Fund Procedure


To support the financial needs of the Foothills community, funds do not support those not involved in our community.

Funds are gifts and not loans.

The fund is supported by donations from the Foothills Community. Online Donations can be made directly. 

Criteria and Limitations

  • Generally no more than one request per year.


All financial requests for support from the Ministerial Discretionary Fund must be approved by a Minister – in consultation with all ministry staff where needed and appropriate.

A cheque request is made either with no identifiable information about the requester. This is done by making it out to CASH or to the vendor to which the funds will be paid out.

The amount and need are noted in the Minister Only PCO Note Category: Ministerial Discretionary Fund Note.
