The Children's Ability Fund has been Active in the community since 1947!

We have come a long way since 1947 when the Associated Canadian Travelers (Edmonton) Club founded the Northern Alberta Crippled Children’s Fund (NACCF) as a way to give back to the communities in Northern Alberta where they worked. Originally, the majority of requests were for specialized footwear such as leg braces to help deal with the effects of Polio.


To help celebrate our 70th Anniversary we are now accepting applications for funding assistance to children with disabilities (up to the age of 21) who reside anywhere in Alberta. Funding requests are reviewed monthly. Financial assistance is available to assist with the purchase of specialized equipment to help children and young adults with the everyday tasks that others may take for granted.
