Make a Donation

Christmas is coming and there are many families who especially need our support during this season. There are a number of ways you can share the spirit of the season this year:

Where to donate

All financial assistance programs are funded solely through grants and donations from community residents, and they can only operate with the support of the community. These include the Recreation Fee Assistance program, School Supply program and the Emergency Assistance program.

Please consider helping out by making a tax-deductible donation. 100% of your contribution stays right within our community and will directly benefit an appreciative family, senior or child here. A sincere thanks to the continued generosity of this community and willingness to assist those in need.

Making a Donation

To make a donation to any of our programs please contact the Okotoks Family Resource Centre.

Recreation Fee Assistance Donations

The Recreation Fee Assistance program has seen significant growth. In 2015, the program approved over $26,000 in subsidies to 208 registered residents.

School Supply Donations

The School Supply program has been running since 2007.  Money is raised through the generous support of Staples, where point-of-sale donations can be made by community members. Additionally cash donations are also accepted directly at the Okotoks Family Resource Centre to support this program.

Emergency Assistance Donations

Since 2005 the Okotoks Family Resource Centre has offered a limited amount of assistance for residents from all Foothills communities, in the form of gift cards for gas/grocery, taxi and hotel expenses and baby essentials such as diapers and formula. The program typically assists 70 to 100 residents each year, providing a bit of assistance until other supports are in place. Community donations have allowed this program to continue providing support, along with generous grocery card donations from Sobeys (Corporate Office) in past years.
