A Donor's Story - It's Just That Easy

"Ever since becoming aware of the Calgary Food Bank and the contribution they make to our city, I wanted to be involved. I started out by becoming a monthly donor. Then one day I thought that I should put my mouth where my money is and actually began volunteering at the Food Bank.

Tax Effective Ways to Give

This table shows the various ways you can give, how to do it, and how they benefit you as a donor.

Donations through United Way

If you donate to the United Way already, you can also designate a donation to be made to the Calgary Food Bank. Many United Way locations in Canada provide a Donor Choice option that allows you to designate your donation to us. Our charitable registration number is 130 167 349 RR0001.

Some United Way locations require a minimum donation, while others charge a processing fee for each designation. United Way of Calgary and Area charges a processing fee of $12 per designation.

Employer Matching

Gifts of Securities

Donating publicly traded securities directly to a charity benefits you as the donor and us as a charity. With changes to the Income Tax act, donating shares directly to a charity allows for the capital gains to be exempt.

Why Financial Donations Are Important

The Food Bank guarantees the content of our hampers. When these supplies run low we have to go out and buy them. When you make a financial donation to the Food Bank you help to purchase these food items.

Donating to the Food Bank is as easy as clicking the donation button on the top of this page. You can also complete our Donation Form or come see us in person.
