WLD Legacy Funds are available for capital projects undertaken by not-for-profit groups and other formally organized groups. The capital project needs to provide direct or indirect economic benefits to the community. Applicants can submit a request for funding through the World’s Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund from August 1 to September 30 each year.  The maximum request for funding is $25,000. The application form outlines the complete application requirements.

DDCC President Lana Phillips states “The Chamber of Commerce is excited to be able to continue to use WLD Legacy Funds to support local economic development through capital projects undertaken by community groups. The WLD Legacy Fund will continue to provide funding to the business community through the Building Enhancement Grant program too. By directing a portion of WLD Legacy Funds to these types of initiatives, we know it has a positive impact on advancing our community. The remainder of WLD Legacy Funds generated will continue to be focused on Tyra’s maintenance.”

Since the inception of the World’s Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund in 2004, the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce has invested over $720,000 in the Drumheller region. This funding has supported 35 not-for-profit organizations and 22 businesses, in addition to $250,000 to the Town of Drumheller to construct the Badlands Community Facility.
