Without your donations, none of this is possible.
Kids Up Front relies on the generous donations from the community – in the form of cash donations, grants, and revenue generated from special events – to guarantee that we are able to continue to provide outstanding experiences for deserving kids.
Our programs are provided at no cost to any of the users and as a result our board members and staff work hard to sustain the funds required to help provide life-changing experiences to the children we serve. That is why we rely on donations to fund the administrative costs of running our life changing programs.

Other ways to donate
Tribute donations can be made in memory or in honour of someone special, or to commemorate a milestone or occasion.
Contact our office by email or phone to arrange to make a tribute donation.
Donate A Car
You can turn your vehicle donation into generous dollars to support Kids Up Front Foundation! Working on our behalf, Donate a Car Canada will accept your vehicle for a donation — running, or not! Old or new!
There is no cost to you, and the process is incredibly easy! Donate a Car Canada will facilitate all aspects of your car donation from the pick up to the final sale, ensuring that your vehicle will be sold for the highest sale outcome possible. They will then forward the net proceeds to us here at Kids Up Front Foundation and we will send you a tax receipt!
Planned giving is a wonderful way to ensure the Kids Up Front programs in Calgary will flourish. You should always consult with your financial adviser first. For more information on how to set up a planned giving donation, please contact us at [email protected]
