How it works
It’s simple! You make a donation and it’s matched up to 50 per cent—thanks to the generosity of Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink.
For the sixth year in a row, Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) has been chosen as a charity partner with Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink—a non-profit program that helps raise and match funds for local charities under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation!
As a charity partner, we’ll receive 100 per cent of donations made to ISC, which goes to supporting programs and services related to newcomer children and youth, and their families. And as a bonus, all donations made through the Shaw Birdies for Kids program will be matched up to 50 per cent—making your donation go even further!
How you’re helping kids in our community
By donating to ISC through Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink, you're helping Calgary’s younger generations thrive by investing in programs and services that support their needs. Here are just some of the important services your investment will support:
- Development and well-being supports for children and youth
- Infant essentials, grocery gift cards, and vital healthcare information for pregnant women and their babies
- Training for frontline service providers to help kids combat bullying
Last year, Immigrant Services Calgary helped 422 parents and caregivers receive food support and healthy lifestyle education, 136 parents and children found a safe space to make new friends and improve their English and literacy skills, and 291 youth participated in community engagement and empowerment programs. This was made possible by generous donors like you!
