The Paperny Family JCC is a safe space where all are welcome, regardless of age, faith, or stage of life. Here, we provide world-class programs and services that challenge both mind and body, enhancing the quality of life for all Calgarians. Underlying everything we do are the Jewish values of kindness, respect, tikkun olam (repairing the world), and life-long learning. These values live through our programs and services, from exercise classes to community speakers, and from daycare to bridge club. We see these values embraced through our work with community partners to make our city a better place to live, work, and play.

As a not-for-profit charity, we rely heavily on grants and fundraising to provide quality programs and services that are affordable to all. When you support the JCC, you help give us the resources to create exceptional programs that serve and sustain our community today and for the future.

There are many ways you can donate to the JCC. All gifts big and small are really appreciated.
