You can change lives

Your generosity opens doors and improves the lives of those living with cancer, ensuring:

  • people have the skills and resources they need to address their emotional, practical and physical needs – so they can live better with cancer
  • the ever-increasing volume of members and their changing needs for supportive cancer care can be met
  • new programs can be developed that fill current gaps in the care of cancer patients

There are so many ways to make a difference in people’s lives today.

“Wellspring helped me turn my life around. Right away I got the sense that I’m not alone. After cancer, your life is changed forever, but now I was around others who knew what it felt like and that helped.”

Other ways to give

We rely solely on the community for funding so we can offer programs and services free of charge to our members. By joining an event, sponsoring someone who is participating in an event, or creating your own fundraiser, you are helping Wellspring make a difference in the lives of those living with cancer.

A bequest or gift by will is a simple and thoughtful way to leave a personal legacy, representing your life and values.

Gifts of securities or shares from your investments can provide you with benefits such as income tax savings, while also making a positive impact in your community.

Donor advised funds (DAF) allow individuals or organizations to create a special account to manage their charitable donations. Philanthropists like you open an account and make tax-deductible contributions to a DAF. You then recommend grants from the DAF to the charities of your choice. The DAF sponsor, generally a nonprofit financial institution, handles all the administrative details, and you can remain completely anonymous if you wish. Your DAF then issues a tax receipt with your deposit.

Contact Wellspring Alberta at donations@wellspringalberta.ca for wire transfer instructions.

Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, bar and bat mitvahs, reunions, festivals, parties, and many special events may call for a charitable gift registry of sorts. There are several ways to support the Wellspring on your special occasion.

  • Request donations in lieu of gifts
  • Make donations in lieu of party favours
  • Set up a Facebook fundraiser, selecting Wellspring from the list of charities
Participate in your employee/retiree workplace giving program. Some employers offer year round giving or specific fundraising timeframes.
Employer matching gifts can double or even triple the impact of your donation to Wellspring Alberta. Ask your company whether they have an employee/retiree donation matching program.

You can turn your vehicle donation into generous dollars to support Wellspring Alberta. Donate a Car Canada will accept your vehicle for donation – running or not. 

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 on to us here at Wellspring Alberta and issue a tax receipt through Canada Helps.

SkipTheDepot, a door-to-door bottle collection service, allows you to turn your empty cans and bottles into a donation.

To gt started download the free SkipTheDepot App, and select “Wellspring Alberta” as your charity of choice and use promo code DONATEWELLSPRING. The funds from your donation will come directly to us.

You will receive a tax receipt equivalent to the value of your pickup.

SkipTheDepot operates in Calgary and Edmonton, as well as in multiple surrounding areas.

If you have questions, refer to the SkipTheDepot FAQ section of their website.

You can make a difference

Wellspring does not receive government funding. Instead, we rely on the generosity of the community and people like you to help people with cancer live better.
