CALGARY PERFORMING ARTS FESTIVAL IS extremely proud to be involved for the 4th year with the Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink (BFK).

BFK is a non-profit program run under the
Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation.
The Foundation was formed in conjunction with the Shaw Charity Classic golf tournament as the philanthropic arm.

How Does This Work?

BFK is a program designed to help raise funds for local charities, and provide matching funds for each charity involved. This means 100% of all donated funds through the Foundation will come directly to the Festival. On top of this, the most exciting part of BFK is the matching pool.  For your generous donation, up to 50% will be matched.


How to Donate

From now until August 30, 2020, when you
donate to the
Calgary Performing Arts Festival

your donation will be matched up to 50%, thanks to BIRDIES FOR KIDS! This means for every $100 you donate, that donation becomes $150!


Your Impact

Our MISSION at the Calgary Performing Arts Festival is to enrich our community by cultivating and celebrating AMATEUR PERFORMERS.

Thank You For Your Support

We are grateful to you for your support of the Calgary Performing Arts Festival.

The dollars help to inspire young people in our community who have the passion to perform in the arts. A strong culture of arts makes a city more vibrant, helps with an exceptional quality of life and shared prosperity for all. The money that we raise during the year will allow us to bring in exemplary adjudicators, provide quality programs, cover venue costs and give talented artists the opportunity to perform at a world-class venue during the final concert.

Your ongoing support directly impacts our community's performing "artists of the future" to RISE AND SHINE THIS YEAR AND YEARS TO COME!
