Your gift improves seniors’ lives

Calgary is no ordinary city. Yet, along with our spirit, and enviable sense of community, there is a serious lack of affordable housing and services for seniors.

We want to assure Calgary seniors they will have a safe, affordable home with the appropriate services and supports, now and in the future.

While supporting people to age successfully is complex, it is simple to understand that investing in our aging population today benefits us all. When people are properly housed, with quality nutrition, cognitive engagement and a connected community of people around them, they are healthier, happier, safer and more engaged. This helps ease the burden on our healthcare system. Silvera believes it makes good sense – financially and socially – to invest in and develop homes where older individuals can age well, living their best lives.

How seniors benefit from your gift

Ways to Give

Make a one-time donation

A one-time donation – small or large – will help us provide safe, affordable housing for seniors.

Make a monthly gift

Monthly gifts support our work in helping seniors add life to their years.

Donate Stocks

Consider donating publicly traded securities including shares and mutual funds.

Donate a Gift-In-Kind

Silvera's Comfort Closets provide hygiene products (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.) and basic supplies (like laundry soap).

Honour Someone Special

Making a donation in honor of someone special is a wonderful way to express your appreciation and show gratitude for them. Or, make a donation in memory of someone who has impacted your life.

Fundraise for Seniors

Silvera supporters have hosted a variety of event types, including silent auctions, garage sales, car washes, bake sales and dinner parties. If you’re considering hosting a fundraiser, please review our third-party fundraising package.

Donate recyclables

Don't waste your time waiting at the bottle depot. Book a pick up of your recyclables from home, through SkipTheDepot, and donate your deposits to Silvera.
