Overview

The Government of Alberta will match up to a maximum of $2 million dollars for funds raised by the designated organizations. Matching amounts will depend on the collective amount raised.

For example, if the funders collectively raise $10 million dollars, each organization would receive 20 cents on the dollar based on the $2 million government matching commitment. The donation period ended on May 31.

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 will help 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
