How to Give

  • Monthly Donations - Set up regular monthly donations.  For donations over $20, you will receive a charitable tax receipt.  Please visit our DONATE page. 
  • One-time gifts - A single gift can help someone in need. For donations over $20, you will receive a charitable donation receipt.  Please visit our DONATE page.
  • In Memoriam - Give a symbolic gift in honour of a loved one – please click here to visit our donate page.
  • Gift of Securities - Securities are the most efficient way to give charitably. When you donate publicly traded securities to the United Way Alberta Northwest, you can eliminate the capital gains tax as these securities are sold, and still receive a tax receipt for the fair market value on the date the security is received by the broker. Additionally, the United Way would receive the full value of the securities.
Planned Giving
  • Bequests - Your bequest does not have to be large to play a vital role in the work United Way does in our community. As you make provisions for loved ones, consider including continued support of the United Way to ensure ongoing care for neighbours in your community.
  • Gift of Life Insurance - A gift of life insurance is a way to make a significant gift in the future while receiving tax benefits today. By giving United Way of the Alberta Capital Region ownership of a new policy, a paid-up policy, or a policy on which premiums remain to be paid, you will contribute future support to the community you care about.
Year End Giving 
  • You do not have to claim all of the donations you made in the year they were made. When you donate over $200, you are automatically eligible to carry that amount forward and claim them on your tax return for any of the next five years. This flexibility means that the unclaimed carry-forward portion may qualify for a larger tax deduction for you, in the future. 
  • Automatically receive your tax receipt via email
