ANNUAL APPEAL

Charitable Registration # 81631 4389 RR0001

We are so grateful for personal donations that support and grow our organization. Fundraising accounts for one third of SWESA’s operating budget and during Covid-19 it has been especially challenging.   We appreciate all donations, big and small.

A tax deductible receipt will be issued for any donation of $20.00 or more and your name will be added to our  Annual Donor Appreciation Wall.

SWESA has another milestone to celebrate in their Annual Appeal!  Thanks to tremendous support by SWESA members, just over $40,000 has been raised towards the final goal of $50,000 by Dec 1st.

SWESA is now asking the broader community for help in reaching this final goal. Alberta Health Services and others tell us how social isolation for seniors can be a real risk especially during a pandemic. All gifts go directly to programming that engages seniors in southwest Edmonton.

CLICK HERE to hear a personal message from Mike Bull, Annual Appeal Lead and Josie Richardson, SWESA President. They extend thanks to those of you who have already donated and a request to spread the word of our Appeal to others who might have the means and interest to help us meet our final goal of $50,000.

Watch the thermometer for weekly updates. As of November 24, 2020, we’ve raised $41,997.29!

Donations received prior to the launch of this campaign are included.

Current and past SWESA members will receive a mailed letter this fall from the SWESA President providing more detail on the Fall 2020 campaign.
