Our goal is to raise approximately $500,000 to replace the existing playground structure and to revitalize the surrounding area.
You can use the online donation tool to the right to make a donation. You will see a transaction on your credit card from VARIETYALBERTA.CA. We are currently researching ways to visibly recognize generous donors with a plaque inside the TGCA, or a name on a bench, picnic table, etc. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of any denomination and the receipt will be emailed to you.
About processing fees:
Making an online donation requires us to use a 3rd party processing company called Stripe. While they have granted us a non-profit status and lower rates, we are still required to pay about 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction. You may choose to cover these processing fees in your donation if you wish. Please be advised that your tax receipt will be written for the amount that is passed along to Variety. If you would like to make a donation and avoid processing fees, you may mail a cheque to:
Variety-The Children's Charity
