Monthly Donor – Becoming a monthly donor ensures the future of Children's Cottage Society and the thousands of children and families we help each year. Donations are deducted monthly and donors will receive a consolidated tax receipt at the end of the giving year. You can donate online by indicating in the comment box that you wish to become a Monthly Donor or email fundraising@childrenscottage.ab.ca to make arrangements.

In-Honour or In-Memoriam gift  Honour a special person with a tribute gift in their name! Donations can be made in recognition of a loved one and a special thank you letter will be sent to the person of your choosing, recognizing your generosity. These gifts can be made online.

Gifts in Kind – Donations of children’s clothing and items are gratefully accepted. Please see our Wish Lists for our most-needed items.

Planned Giving – Leave a lasting legacy! Through a bequest in your will, you can significantly contribute to the community with a gift of assets (property, stocks or bonds), gift annuities, trusts or life insurance policies. What’s more, planned gifts may qualify for significant tax deductions.

Third-Party Fundraising – Have fun while raising funds! Get your clubs, community groups, co-workers and friends together and host an event that is uniquely you. Jump-start an annual run, plan a golf tournament or cook up a delicious dinner party for friends. 

Company Matching Grants – Get your organization actively involved in corporate philanthropy! Many companies have a Matching Gift Program or a Volunteer Grant program, often doubling the individual tax-deductible gifts made by their employees. Contact your Human Resources department for more information and to advise them of your wish to have them match your donation to Children's Cottage Society.

Donate-a-Car – Donate A Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for Children's Cottage Society. We provide free towing in many areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your RV, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle to Children's Cottage Society through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. Simply fill out the donation form and Donate A Car Canada will look after all of the details. After your Vehicle Donation is complete, Children's Cottage Society will receive notification and payment, at which time they will send you a tax receipt, along with a letter expressing their thanks, within 45 days!
