Donations

Donations are gratefully accepted

Springboard Centre is mostly funded by the Government of Alberta through the Persons with Developmental Disabilities. The agency also relies on fundraising from casino events. Please contact us if you are intersted in volunteering for upcoming casino events.

One Time Donation

You can simply mail a cheque to our office and mark Sustainability Fund in the memo field (Springboard Centre for Adults with  Disabilities, #14, 2115 - 27 Avenue, NE Calgary, AB, T2E7E4) or to make a donation online by clicking on the Canada Helps logo. This will allow you to make a one-time donation using your PayPal, Debit Card, Visa or MasterCard.

Monthly Giving

You can support our very worthy cause with a regular monthly payment. This can be done by mailing a number of postdated cheques into our office or make a donation online by clicking on the Canada Helps logo. Once on the Canada Helps website, you can choose the monthly giving option, which will allow you to make regular monthly donations to the Sustainability Fund by using your PayPal, Debit Card, Visa or MasterCard. 

Vehicle Donations

Do you have a vehicle that you no longer want but are not sure what to do with? Then make a donation! Springboard Centre is part of Donate-A-Car Canada. Every vehicle donated gives you a charitable receipt, with the proceeds going to Springboard Centre. 

Planned Giving

Planned Giving (Legacy Gift) is the thoughtful process of planning a gift to produce the maximum benefit to the donor and the charity. There are various ways a donor can leave money or assets to Springboard Centre at his/her death or invest money so that the donor receives the benefits during his or her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to Springboard. There are many options through which a legacy gift may be made - wills and bequests, life insurance, charitable trust, endowments, etc. It is important to consult your financial planner, friends and family before you create a legacy gift.

Donating Securities

A gift of publicly listed securities provides  an innovative and creative way to make a charitable gift and can often help fund a larger gift than you might otherwise be able to make. Securities can include stocks, bonds, bills, warranties and mutual funds. Federal and Provincial incentives make it very attractive to donate publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value. Please contact you financial broker or advisor if this method of giving is of interest to you.
