$30 can make a big difference


To mark 30 years of CUPS, we’re challenging everyone to donate $30, monthly or one-time. All proceeds go directly to helping CUPS provide services for Calgarians in need.


Help us build a resilient city for all.

In 1989, CUPS opened its doors. It was a place where low-income and homeless Calgarians could get basic medical care and referral services. Since then, we’ve helped thousands of people, but 30 years later, the city has changed – and CUPS has changed too. We’ve moved beyond basic services to an evidence-based, integrated care approach. By applying the science of brain development, that addresses the root causes of poverty and poor health, we create lasting, positive change for our clients, their children and our city.

Options for your donations:

  • WHERE MOST NEEDED – The needs of our clients are ever-changing and as such, we will apply your donation where it is needed the most.

  • ECONOMIC – Help us reduce economic barriers so individuals and families have stable homes, access to food and nutrition, improve their skills and job prospects and ultimately increase their quality of life.

  • SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL – When people feel connected to their community, have good relationships with each other and learn to navigate through their challenges, their lives get better. With your support, together we will build a stronger, healthier city for all.

  • HEALTH – People living in poverty often confront very complex health issues, and many things can stand in the way of getting the help they need. Help us remove those barriers by giving people easy access to a multitude of health supports – from general, women’s and mental health services to dental care.

  • DEVELOPMENTAL – When we provide positive, supportive environments for children, and when we build the capacities of caregivers, we build resilience across generations. Your donation will support our child and family programs that will help nourish the healthy development of a new generation of Calgarians.

You'll receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation to CUPS—and the knowledge that you've made a difference.
