  • Learning Through the Arts (Aboriginal Program)
  • Wood Buffalo Food Bank (through the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank)
  • Rotary Club of Fort McMurray
  • First Responder Foundations (Fire and EMS)

As in the past, we will be adding charities to the list as we do our due diligence and receive information on how the organizations will be using the funds.  Funds will be raised and deployed as quickly and realistically as possible.  We will work closely with the recipients to ensure that funds are accounted for and we will update our donors as information is provided. 

A credit card processing fee of 3% will be applied to all transactions. Place2Give Fund is an online Donora Advised Fund and tax receipts will be issued directly upon donation.

Thank you to the organizations who are helping out with this initiative and supporting those organizations who are working on the front lines.
