Birdies for Kids
Support Outdoor Education in Fish Creek
Donate through Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink
The Friends of Fish Creek are pleased to announce that the TD Learning Naturally program has once again been chosen as one of more than 120 local charities to participate in the Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink program!
The program supports students between grades K – 6 from Calgary elementary schools located in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods, often with high ESL and New Canadians populations. Many of the students who visit the park through their TD Learning Naturally field trip experience the wonders of this cherished natural area for the first time.
If you enjoy visiting Fish Creek with your family, and recognize the importance of instilling a lifetime of unforgettable memories in today’s youth, then please donate to the Friends of Fish Creek through Birdies for Kids. From now until the end of the Shaw Charity Classic, which runs August 29 – September 2 at the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club, every dollar donated through BFK will be matched up to 50% by the Shaw Charity Classic foundation and partnering organizations.
It costs only $10 to provide one unforgettable day of learning in Fish Creek for a student who otherwise may not have this opportunity, and our goal this year is to raise $20,000 in order to bring 2,000 children to Fish Creek.
This essential program has never received government funding and its continuation depends on support from the community. The BFK program has immense potential and we encourage you to donate and speak to your employer about making a tax-deductible donation.
