Overview

Between April 15 and May 31, the Government of Alberta matched, up to a maximum of $2 million, funds raised by the designated organizations. Albertans' donations, combined with government's matching dollars raised about $7 million for the designated organizations.

This program has helped to fill gaps created by the increased and changing demand for services created by the COVID-19 pandemic – and help keep Albertans employed.

Every donation helped charities continue to feed, support and care for Albertans in this unprecedented time, including:

  • the elderly
  • Indigenous populations
  • those experiencing mental health issues
  • people with disabilities
  • those experiencing addiction issues
  • newcomers to Canada
  • people experiencing homelessness
