Pandemic Recovery Program

For Community, Forever, For Everyone.

We are listening to charities and our conversations with them are integral to help us identify how we can bridge the gaps and meet critical needs. In response, we have established the Pandemic Recovery Program to support all sectors serving our community.

We continue to operate as a 360-degree-grant-maker and the Pandemic Recovery Program is open to all registered charities in Calgary and area, as well as First Nations communities in Treaty 7 region.

Calgary Foundation will…

  • Redirect some of our discretionary granting resources to the Program.
  • Match new donations made to the Pandemic Recovery Program (up to a maximum amount to be determined).
  • Cover administrative costs/credit card transaction fees so that 100% of donations are directed toward charities.
