How Does it Work?

Donors can make a donation to one or more of the participating charities between Feb. 1 and Sept. 2, 2018 either online or by mailing a cheque to the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation office. All donations recieved are matched up to 50% and 100% of your donation is given to the selected charity. The Shaw Charity Classic pays for all processing fees associated with the transaction. Tax receipts are issued from the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation and will be mailed to you by Nov. 20, 2018.

Payment Methods

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or credit card (VISA or MC). All donations over $5,000 must be paid by cheque. Cheques are to be made out to the 'Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation' memo: [specific charity of choice]. Do not pay the charity directly. 100% of your donation will go towards your specific charity of choice, as the Shaw Charity Classic covers all administrative costs to donate.
