ECECAF Trustees Tour Newly Named “CELT” at Norquest

 

Edmonton Civic Employees Charitable Assistance Fund Trustees toured the newly named Civic Employees Legacy Tower (CELT) last week. Announced earlier this year, the new name is a result of a $2 million gift from the Edmonton Civic Employees Charitable Assistance Fund.


“Formerly known as Heritage Tower, the building was renamed as a result of the donation of an $2 million gift from the Edmonton Civic Employees Charitable Assistance Fund (ECECAF) and in honour of the ECECAF and its members. It is the largest gift in the ECECAF’s 77-year history, and represents the charitable efforts of over 11,000 participating members, from nine different unions and associations.

“This is an incredible honour,” says ECECAF board chair, Brenda Waluk. “On behalf of all of our members, we would like to say how proud we are to be part of the spirited and vibrant growth of NorQuest College. Our members are very committed to making a difference in this community. This is a legacy that will live on for many generations.
