BFK Fundraising Update: Chip in for kids
While we can’t physically come together this year for the Shaw Charity Classic, Shaw is committed to continuing the tournament’s legacy of giving.
The real winners of the Shaw Charity Classic have always been the hundreds of thousands of children and youth across Alberta who rely on charitable organizations for support with food security, healthcare, mental wellness, and much more. Organizations like ours rely on donations and we need your support now more than ever as demand for our services continue to increase. Within the community we provide over 100 literacy programs for 1,027 adult learners and 883 children, and train 190 facilitators to deliver programs across the city and the province. These programs are extremely beneficial for learners in their everyday lives — 87% of our adult learners demonstrated increased confidence in their skills and 96% reported seeing an increase in their literacy and essential skills.
FESA and Shaw invite you to #ChipinforKids by texting KIDS098 to 30333 to donate $10 and help us continue to provide barrier-free educational services and literacy resources in our community. To make your generous contribution go further, Shaw will match your donation and the matched donation amount will then be matched again by the Shaw Charity Classic, up to an additional 50 per cent. Your $10 donation can grow into a donation of $30 to the Further Education Society of Alberta.
The donations and matched contributions raised through the #ChipinforKids program will help ensure that charities like ours that have been strained by COVID-19 will be able to continue supporting our community.
