Birdies For Kids
The CCEF is thrilled to announce it is part of Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink for 2021!
As part of the Shaw Charity Classic, Birdies for Kids is a fundraising program designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament and provide matching funds for each charity involved.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Charities will receive 100% of every donation collected on their behalf. Also, charities will be matched up to 50% thanks to the Shaw Charity Classic, Shaw Communications, AltaLink and other corporate partners.
How to Donate
From now until August 15th, 2021, when you donate to Calgary Catholic Education Foundation through the donate link below, your donation will be matched up to 50% thanks to Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink. This means your gift of $100 becomes $150 – at no extra cost to you.
Please note: All donations greater than $5,000 must be made via cheque. Cheques must be made out to ‘Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation’, and in the memo line, please indicate CALGARY CATHOLIC EDUCATION FOUNDATION
All donations received through Birdies for Kids will support learning opportunities to ensure that the over 56,000 students and 118 schools supported by the CCEF receive equity in education.
Your gift will give children and youth in need the opportunity to access enhanced learning opportunities such as Calgary Campus/Open Minds®, technology like Chromebooks®, social justice projects, leadership and development prospects and Safe, Caring, and Faith Filled learning environments.
YOUR support is especially critical this year, as children and youth recover from the mental health and educational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
