The Northwestern Alberta Foundation (NAF) has established the Barb and Al Side Family Fund, an endowment of over $1.4 million.

This was celebrated at the Side residence on June 26, 2024, honoring Barb and Al Side for their community contributions.

Linda Side emphasized the fund's perpetual support for community growth, reflecting her parents' long-term vision in family, community, and business.

Al Side's legacy as a community builder and business icon remains inspirational. Annually, NAF will accept applications and work with the Side family to address

community needs across northwestern Alberta.
