We couldn’t do the work we do without your support. Every year, donors just like you make it possible for us to support thousands of families, youth and children through some of life's most difficult times. Here’s how your gift helps:
When you donate to Aspen's Winter Breather Fund, you are helping a family or individual who needs a little extra help during the winter months. Your donation will provide financial relief of utility and grocery expenses, empowering those supported to focus on what matters most to them during the holiday season.
When you donate to Aspen’s Family Fund, you are helping break the cycle of poverty for future generations. This fund helps families stay housed, provides parents with the skills they need to support their families, and helps provide children with opportunities to participate in recreation and other activities essential for healthy development.
When you donate to Aspen’s Community Fund, you help build support networks for community members facing challenges at home or a lack of support or resources. This fund helps provide programming at our centres across the city, ensuring families and individuals have access to a safe and supportive space to talk, learn, access resources and build meaningful connections with their neighbours.
When you donate to Aspen’s Youth Fund, you help children and youth of all ages build the supports and skills needed to thrive. From providing supportive accommodations to youth unable to stay in their family homes to providing mentorship opportunities for young people transitioning to adulthood, this fund helps youth overcome hardship and achieve their goals.
On Sunday, May 26th, Team Aspen will be participating in the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon. We invite to join us as a runner, walker, cheerleader or donor as we raise funds to improve the lives of individuals and families currently experiencing poverty in our city. Don't let the title scare you away. The Calgary Marathon race series offers something for everyone.
Celebrate your birthday, baby shower, retirement or other special occasion by giving back to children and families in need. Create your own personal fundraising page through CanadaHelps and ask friends and family to make a donation to Aspen in lieu of gifts. As an Aspen PartyRaiser, you will help the thousands of youth and families who come through our doors each year.
