Approaches To Giving

You and your family have a few options when it comes to advancing your philanthropy. Before considering a Fund at the Calgary Foundation, we encourage you to explore your options and choose the giving vehicle that best suits your needs.

Giving through a

Community Fund

Great For

Donors who want the support of a knowledgable, professional staff - without the need to manage administrative and reporting requirements.

Giving through a

Commercial Fund

Great For

Donors who require less support and who prefer to give through a financial firm, working alongside a registered charitable organization.

Giving through a

Private Foundation

Great For

Donors who want full control of the giving process, and whom don't mind the extra time and expense of registering as a charity with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)
