The Beverly Heights Community League has several sources of funding for different initiatives and projects:

  • Our annual membership drive is an important fundraiser. Membership fees help to offset the cost of community programs.
  • We apply for grants through the City of Edmonton, the Province of Alberta and the Government of Canada.
  • We host a casino every two years that is operated by our volunteers.  This fundraising initiative provides the bulk of our funds for our operating budget.
  • Fees from the sports teams assist in the cost of sports, such as uniforms, umpire fees, coaching clinics, etc.
  • The Beverly Heights Variety Show is our largest annual fundraiser, now in its 49th season!
  • We host an annual craft show.
  • Additional ad-hoc fundraising events throughout the year.

Our 2019 Casino Dates have been set!
Saturday January 19 & Sunday January 20 at Century Casino Edmonton
