If your organization needs assistance or there are resources missing from this page, please contact us.
If you are able to aid in advocating for supports for nonprofits, please communicate with your government representatives. There are over 60 000 nonprofit organizations registered in Alberta and many more unregistered, volunteer run organizations supported by registered umbrella organizations like AWSN. These organizations need substantial and flexible funding to continue to serve their communities in unique ways that only nonprofits serve.
