Donors

Support students in Calgary by making a donation online via our secure online donation platform or you can download our Donor Card and make a donation by mail.

EducationMatters offers two types of funds to direct your gift: Endowment Funds and Flow-Though Funds.

Endowment funds preserve the principal gift in perpetuity and create a legacy; grants are made from interest earned on the principal over the years.

Flow-through funds are spent within two years and are immediately put towards projects to support students.

It’s your donation. Choose how you want to use it. Your funds can be directed to any one of our existing funds that fall in the categories below, or you can make a general donation here that will be directed to the current area of greatest need.
