There are so many ways you can contribute to the Women’s Centre of Calgary
Your generous donation to the Women’s Centre will help change a woman’s life. Your donation funds our community-capacity building programs, emergency basic need assistance and mobilizes women to learn about pressing social issues in our communities. Your donation is also tax-deductible; the Women’s Centre will issue charitable tax receipts for donations over $20. And, if your company or business matches donations, you can double your impact!

Basic Needs Items
The Women’s Centre welcomes donations of Basic Needs Items (Gifts in Kind) if they correspond to our current needs and if the Centre can benefit from the donations. In-kind giving is a donation of any non-cash product or good. While we cannot receive donations of clothing, furniture or household goods, as we have very limited space, we are currently in need of:
- Diapers (size four and up)
- Shampoo & conditioner
- Lotion (hand and body)
- Body wash
- Sanitary pads/napkins
- New, unwrapped toys
- Gift Cards for grocery stores
- Plastic & reusable bags (new and used)
- Face care products
- Toilet paper
Please note that a tax receipt from the Women’s Centre will be issued, if requested, once the donated item is received by the recipient organization. To receive a tax receipt, the original receipt for the product must be submitted. If the value of an individual item is more than $500, there must be an independent appraisal. If you are interested in making a gift-in-kind donation, contact us at 403-264-1155 or by e-mail at email@example.com
