Donate Now Annual Appeal Grants

This year will continue to be a challenge as long as COVID-19 precautions preclude our usual fundraising activities. SWESA’s operating funds come from grants; membership and program fees; and a variety of fundraising efforts. Fundraising ensures our programs are affordable, accessible and can grow to meet the interests of people 55+ in southwest Edmonton.  Click on the buttons above to find out more about fundraising in 2021 and watch for news of our Annual Appeal this fall.  Please note: The Microsoft Internet Explorer browser will not be supported after August 17, 2021.  You will need to use another browser to access the Canada Helps website (after you click the Donate Now button).
