Donation Fund Program

The ASRPWF administers the Donation Fund, which can provide tax-deductible receipts for unconditional contributions to amateur sport or recreation in Alberta.

The ASRPWF reviews contributions to the donation fund on a quarterly basis and determines distribution of funds to the programs and clients of the ASRPWF. The appropriate provincial association then receives the funds and must account for expenditures of the amount received.

The ASRPWF provides this service without charging any administration fees. The full amount of each donation goes directly to the support of sport and recreation.
