Fundraising in the community brings enormous benefits and enables us to better invest in our programs, services, and resources. This helps to raise vital funds as well as awareness of our work. Sponsorship, whether it is to run a marathon, do a sky dive or host a Casino Night, can be a great and fun way to raise money.
Donations to support our general fundraising are welcome, or donors can choose to direct their gift to benefit a specific project or service. We are very grateful to companies, community groups and individual community members for their generous support; each and every donation, whatever its size, is very much appreciated. Voluntary income donations are spent on new projects, resources, and services which are not covered by funding.
Many businesses, large and small, are becoming more conscious of their “corporate social responsibility” and are keen to support good causes; often those that are local to where they operate.
We welcome not only financial donations, but also support from groups of employees who may wish to give their time and energy to help with specific projects; or bring unique opportunities to some of the people we support, and to create community partners.
Charitable Donations Tax Credits
When an individual Albertan files their personal income tax, they total up all their charitable donations during a calendar year. They may be eligible to receive a combined 50% non-refundable tax credit on the total of donations made above the $200 threshold. Donations below the $200 threshold continue to receive a combined tax credit of 25%.
We would be happy to provide a tax deductible receipt for your donation, upon request.
