Community Spirit Program
The program is made up of two components - a donation grant and a charitable tax credit. The goal of the program is to increase individual charitable giving. The program is donor-driven, meaning it recognizes and encourages Albertans to support their favourite organizations.
The donation grant provides an opportunity for eligible non-profit and/or charitable organizations to receive a provincial grant. The grant is based on total annual cash donations from individual Albertans that have been received by an eligible organization over a 12-month fiscal period. The grant can be used to support an organization's operations, programs and/or capital projects. The maximum grant available is $25,000 up to a maximum of $50,000 over three years. A minimum total of $1,000 in eligible cash donations needs to be received prior to applying for a grant.
Eligible non-profit and charitable organizations are encouraged to submit their applications.
