The Chinese Academy is proud to be one of the grant recipients of the Government of Alberta’s Community Spirit Donation Grant Program 2010-2011
What is the Donation Grant Program?
It is about giving back to the community, and helping make it vibrant and strong!
The Community Spirit Donation Grant Program provides an opportunity for non-profit and charitable organizations such as ours to receive a donation grant based on total eligible cash donations from individuals that have been received over a 12-month period. Once this takes place, we would then submit an application for a grant.
The provincial government issues a donation grant to help support our operations, programs or capital projects. The Chinese Academy is most grateful for the funds made possible by the grant and for all the community support we have received over the years. The Grant will be used for scholarships, bursaries and the operation of our school.
If you would like to donate to The Chinese Academy, please call The Chinese Academy's office at 403-777-7663 or send a cheque payable to “The Chinese Academy” at 6620 – 4 St N.W. Calgary Alberta T2K 1C2. A tax deductible receipt will be issued for donations of $20 or more.
