As a result of his love for the community and his past experience in fund raising Jim Noble decided to branch out and set up an endowment fund to raise money to provide perpetual help to the various health related charities around Edmonton. As so much is needed for all unfortunate diseases and health issues, The Jim Noble Family Hope Fund (also known as The Family Hope Fund) was set up to additionally support organizations in the areas of diabetes, heart and stroke and Alzheimer's disease just to name a few.
As mentioned earlier, The Family Hope Fund is set up as an endowment fund which means that all donations received are held in trust with all the earnings from that trust going to the various charities and organizations. This way every generous donation received by The Family Hope Fund can keep on giving… year after year.
“The idea of The Family Hope Fund is that it goes on forever. Every dollar that someone donates today will still be helping future generations decades and (hopefully) centuries from now. We are dropping metaphorical pebbles in the water and watching the ripple expand.” Jim Noble
The trust fund is administered by The Edmonton Community Foundation and all decisions as to how the funds are distributed are made by the board of directors. As founder of The Family Hope Fund, Jim does have the honor of making an annual request as to which charities to support for the year but ultimately, the decisions are made by the board.
