Never before has it been so obvious — scientific knowledge is power.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we can see this in spades.
It was scientists who first sounded the alarm. It was scientists who developed the screening tests and protocols. And now scientists are working around the clock to develop the vaccines and antivirals we desperately need.
Calgary’s science centre, TELUS Spark, specializes in increasing the affinity for science in mainstream culture. Its esteemed education programs inspire the new generations of scientists that will keep the world safe.
Spark directs every donated dollar to science education and offsets the cost for schools and families with limited financial resources.
Every donation matters. If you want to go a step further, consider making monthly donations. Monthly contributions mean that you can give a smaller amount regularly, knowing that over the long term, you have greater impact. Mostly donors provide stability to science centre programs and the people they serve.
Spark will gladly accept your donation through securities, if that is preferable for you.
Donations of $20 or more per year will receive a charitable tax receipt. Please note, due to the current situation, there may be a delay in receiving tax receipts.
To facilitate the donation of securities, Spark uses the assistance of Canada Helps for reputable, secure transfers.
Spark's charitable business number is 118781079 RR 0001
100% of donations made to TELUS Spark, the Calgary science centre, are directed to science education programming that inspires future generations of scientists.
