Volunteers & Donations

Donations

We have our new lease from the City of Calgary which included an area that can be respositioned as a Parking Lot. We have very limited parking at the building and limited street parking. This project will increase our parking lot by about 50 stalls and will be directly behind our building. It will also have a great sidewalk to the front of the building. We are now working on grants, but any donation made to the Parking Lot Project of $10.00 or more will receive an official tax receipt. We would be pleased to discuss this project with any donor — Just call Sheila at 403-286-4488.

We want to thank all of you who have donated money to our Memorial Fund in memory of members and friends who have passed on. We use our memorial gifts for our landscaping around the building and our beautiful flower beds.

Our policy with donations is to give an income tax receipt for all donations of $10.00 and over. In the case of memorial funds we speak to the family to be sure they are in agreement for it to be used for the landscaping. Other donations are used for our on going expenses unless requested to be used for another project. In that case we ask the donor to put their request in writing so that it can be taken to the Board and further discussion can be done.

Donations are gratefully received as much of our funding is from private donation, company donations, and from fundraising events.

If you have any questions in regard to giving donations please call Richard Welsh at 403-286-4488 or visit the Information page for more contact details.
