What you can do to help.

Be part of the Wellspring Calgary legacy by contributing to our endowment fund. Our co-founders had a vision for Wellspring Calgary’s long-term sustainability and this endowment provides security for the future. Interest from this fund directly contributes to our annual operating revenue. Every gift increases the principal amount which generates additional annual interest revenue.

Donor advised funds (DAF) allow individuals or organizations to create a special account to manage their charitable donations. Philanthropists like you open an account and make tax-deductible contributions to a DAF. You then recommend grants from the DAF to the charities of your choice. The DAF sponsor, generally a nonprofit financial institution, handles all the administrative details, and you can remain completely anonymous if you wish. Your DAF then issues a tax receipt with your deposit.

Contact Wellspring Calgary at donations@wellspringcalgary.ca for wire transfer instructions.

Participate in your employee/retiree workplace giving program. Some employers offer year round giving or specific fundraising timeframes.

Employer matching gifts can double or even triple the impact of your donation to Wellspring Calgary. Ask your company whether they have an employee/retiree donation matching program.

If you are interested in a naming opportunity, please contact Janice Van Coughnett, Director of Philanthropy, at 587-747-0260 ext.1017 or email JaniceVC@wellspringcalgary.ca.

Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, bar and bat mitvahs, reunions, festivals, parties, and many special events may call for a charitable gift registry of sorts. There are several ways to support the Wellspring Calgary on your special occasion.

You can turn your vehicle donation into generous dollars to support Wellspring Calgary. Donate a Car Canada will accept your vehicle for donation – running or not. 

There is no cost to you, and the process is incredibly easy. Donate a Car Canada will facilitate all aspects of your car donation from the pick up to the final sale, ensuring that your vehicle will be sold for the highest sale outcome possible. They will then forward the net proceeds on to us here at Wellspring Calgary and we will send you a tax receipt!

We’ve partnered with SkipTheDepot — a door-to-door bottle collection service which will allow you to turn your empty cans and bottles into a donation!

  1. Download the free SkipTheDepot App, and select “Wellspring Calgary” as your charity of choice. The funds from your donation will come directly to us.
