The Calgary Foundation is a public charity established in 1955. It manages about $400 million dollars and counting. They maintain high professional standards in the investment and management of the various funds entrusted to their care.
As an endowment fund, every dollar you donate becomes part of the capital endowment funds; the Calgary Foundation invests our contributions, and 4.5 percent of the Fund is made available for grants. Income earned in excess of the grant allocation and costs is reinvested as capital.
I don’t have cash, so how else can I give?
Contributions can also be made through the Calgary Foundation as a bequest from your will, gifts of securities, real estate, life insurance, or a charitable remainder trust. In the event that you wish to give these ways, please inform the Calgary Chinook Fund and contact the Calgary Foundation at:
403 802 - 7700
Contributions are made directly through the Calgary Foundation. No one needs to know you donated or how much you donated—they will not publish your donation or in request, so there is no way link your donation to our fund unless you disclose the information
