Support child and youth programs at Heritage Park
Donate to Heritage Park through the Birdies for Kids program, and have your donation matched by up to 50%!
As a registered charity, Heritage Park Historical Village relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to make our preservation of the past possible.
This year, Heritage Park has been selected to participate in Shaw Birdies for Kids, a donation matching program presented by AltaLink.
What is Shaw Birdies for Kids?
Birdies for Kids is a non-profit program run under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. The program is designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the Shaw Charity Classic golf tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved. The program itself acts as a partnership builder between donors and charities, as all money will flow through the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation to Alberta charities.
This means all administrative costs and efforts for the program are covered by the Shaw Charity Classic tournament, allowing 100% of your donation to go directly toward supporting Heritage Park.
Every child should have the opportunity to connect to our past; to hear inspiring tales of the men and women who paved the way for our current success, and gain a better understanding of the people, cultures and changing landscapes of our rich heritage. Heritage Park brings history to life for almost 65,000 Calgary school kids every year – taking invaluable lessons out of the history books, and placing the kids in the middle of history.
When you donate to Heritage Park through Birdies for Kids, you help Heritage Park provide dynamic and engaging educational programs, and to offer subsidies and scholarships for schools and individuals with financial needs. Our goal is to ensure all kids have an equal opportunity to learn and grow through the magic of history.
Your donation goes further
On top of your donation, the most exciting part of Birdies for Kids is the matching pool. Up to 50% of your donation will be matched and the funds will go directly to Heritage Park.
