Consider giving to one of these endowments:
Steve Barr died at a young age. He was a devoted father and husband, distinguished architect and a passionate supporter of recreation and parks.
As a lasting tribute to Steve Barr, the Recreation for Life Foundation has established an endowment in his name.
In his career, Steve, as a partner in Barr Ryder Architects and Planners, specialized in superior architectural design of recreation, sport and cultural facilities.
Steve was a stalwart supporter of ARPA and its partner the Recreation for Life Foundation. He believed in the value of the recreation and parks sector.
Whenever he could Steve worked hard to advocate for the need and importance of community recreation and parks services in Alberta.
The proceeds from the Steve Barr Memorial Endowment will be strategically used in legacy recognition of Steve and to advance the growth and development of recreation and parks.
Information about this endowment will be available shortly.
Ron Gorgichuk, recipient of ARPA’s prestigious Award of Merit made amazing contributions to the field of recreation and parks not just in Alberta, but also at a national and international level.
His various positions within the Alberta Government and the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation have all had a common denominator – improving quality of life through recreation and parks, specifically, Ron extensively championed for a trails network throughout Alberta.
Ron kept busy in a number of volunteer roles including President of the Canadian Team Handball Federation and as a Director of the Canadian Olympic Association.
The Ron Gorgichuk Endowment Fund was established to celebrate Ron’s contributions to recreation and parks in the province.
This Endowment supports the Ron Gorgichuk Memorial Luncheon held at the biennial Parks Forum event which sees a prominent speaker address the audience on topics such as trail development and parks stewardship.
