Without the support of our major funders Rise Calgary wouldn't be able to do the work that we do supporting residents in their journeys and making sure that everyone moves forward.
With the support of the Calgary Foundation, we have been able to provide COVID relief through our Basic Needs Fund program, renovate our office spaces to be more welcoming to community members and allow for drop-in showers, and support the merger of Sunrise and BowWest to form Rise Calgary.
Government of Alberta
With the support of the Government of Alberta, Rise Calgary is able to provide opportunities for Calgarians to develop their communities through the Community Initiatives Program, as well as providing Financial Coaching programs so that low income Calgarians can take control of their finances and move out of poverty.
Service Canada provides support to Rise Calgary through their Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, allowing us to offer free low income tax filing and benefits navigation services to Calgarians in need, as well as supporting seniors in Calgary with accessing technology supports to stay connected during the pandemic, thanks to their New Horizons for Seniors program.
City of Calgary
Rise Calgary is excited to join the City of Calgary as we begin to innovate on ideas to move people out of poverty in our pilot project, Mobility Coaching.
This pilot program tests whether goal settings, coaching, and the principles of behavioral economics can create lasting improvements in the lives of Calgarians living on low and fixed incomes.
Donors and Partners
Rise Calgary would like to give special thanks to our donors and partners who have given funding, time, goods, and services over the last year. Your support is truly appreciated and makes a big difference in the lives of the individuals and families we serve.
