Calgary 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.

Birdies for Kids

#ChipinforKids Text-to-Donate Campaign

Shaw is encouraging the community to #ChipinforKids with a text-to-donate campaign in support of Calgary JCC as a participating charity in Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink. On their mobile phones (any provider), donors can text KIDS041 to 30333 to donate $10 to the JCC via the Shaw Charity Classic Foundation from now until August 30.

Shaw will match every donation made on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to a total of $150,000. In addition, donations will be matched again by the Shaw Charity Classic ­— up to an additional 50% of the Shaw-matched donation. This means that an individual donation of $10 can grow into a donation of $30 to the JCC!

The donations and matched contributions raised through #ChipinforKids will help ensure organizations that have been strained by COVID-19, such as Calgary JCC, will be able to continue their work in our communities.
