SPAR DONATION FUND PROGRAM
Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation (SPAR) Donation Fund Program encourages support for the development of sport, physical activity and recreation in Alberta. The program gives individual and corporate donors an opportunity for a tax incentive to invest in the future of the sector and a process for the acceptance of contributions from charitable organizations.
Eligible sport, physical activity and recreation development programs are those delivered directly or in partnership with the organizations enrolled in the Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Donation Fund Program.

ALBERTANS HELPING ALBERTANS
Alberta Whitewater Association
Donors that have supported whitewater programs in Alberta see first hand more opportunities for paddling athletes to increase and hone their skills for competition and continue to be active for life. Donor support allowed the Alberta Whitewater Association purchased a fleet of boats.
"Having extra boats to practice in the water has made a huge difference. It has helped to get the kids fired up and excited to train and ultimately stay in the sport."
Alberta Curling Federation
When the COVID 19 pandemic hit the world this year and shut down sport, the SPAR Donation Fund Program provided curlers a way to support their sport and curling facilities across the province. With the coordination of Curling Alberta, donors were able to see their donations were going back into the curling community.
"The Alberta Curling Federation was happy to have access to the Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Donation Fund Program throughout the pandemic."
