How To Get Started

Individual and youth group fundraisers can contact our Humane Education team by email at, phone (403-723-6000), or mail (4455 110 Avenue SE, Calgary AB, T2C 2T7) to let us know what you are planning. A member of our Humane Education team may be able to offer some suggestions and offer a thank-you tour to your group.

In support of your efforts, we can provide printed information about Calgary Humane Society, issue tax receipts as per CRA guidelines (please call us if you have any questions), loan Calgary Humane Society coin boxes if necessary, and provide guidance and consultation on how to make your event a success.

On behalf of all the staff, volunteers and animal friends at the Calgary Humane Society, thank you.

Please note: CHS is not able to assume any legal or financial liability associated with the event, incur expenses, or provide funding for third party fundraisers. This means that Calgary Humane Society is not allowed to provide you any money to help with your fundraiser. Because we are not organizing the fundraiser, you are responsible for anything that happens at your fundraiser.
