This holiday season, ACGC is creating an opportunity for Albertans to stand in solidarity with Albertan international development organizations and the work they are doing for a peaceful and healthy world.

Alberta Giving is ACGC’s first collective campaign and it is kicking off with GivingTuesday, a national day of charitable giving. Throughout the month of December, we will be showcasing our member organizations’ various fundraising campaigns, highlighting the work they do towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the incredible work they have accomplished in countries around the world since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that together, through this giving campaign, Albertans can support our member organizations to continue to uplift and empower communities around the world.

See below the many Alberta based organizations working around the world that you can support this holiday season! Click on the photos for more information and the donation links for each organization.
