Give to Westside

Westside was built by community. Neighborhood volunteers, in partnership with the City of Calgary, Province of Alberta and hundreds of generous donors, achieved the dream of building Westside Recreation Centre in 2000 and expanding the centre in 2010.

Westside is a registered charity. Gifts are currently directed to future expansion projects or an area of your choice and can be made with cash, cheque or credit card. Charitable tax receipts are issued for all donations of $25 or more. Recognition and naming opportunities are offered to those who are interested.

For information on giving, please contact the Fund Development & Communications Manager by email or telephone at 403.531.5875 Ext 265.

Thank you for your interest and support!
