Alberta Theatre Projects is thrilled to announce it is part of Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink for 2021!

As part of the Shaw Charity Classic, Birdies for Kids is a fundraising program designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament and provide matching funds for each charity involved.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Charities will receive 100% of every donation collected on their behalf. Also, charities will be matched up to 50% thanks to the Shaw Charity Classic, Shaw Communications, AltaLink and other corporate partners.

YOUR IMPACT

All Birdies for Kids funds raised will be directed toward Alberta Theatre Project’s Youth Engagement Programs and will allow theatre arts to be more accessible to kids and teens in the Calgary area who may otherwise be unable to experience the transformative power of live theatre.

We continue to see an increased demand for our youth programs and our aim is that no young people get turned away.

Your gift will enhance programming for low income schools to create a barrier free way for kids to experience theatre arts.  In particular, Spotlight on Youth program, which provides financial subsidies to allow low income schools to attend student matinees and online programming.  The arts are a fundamental part of child development and Alberta Theatre Projects is committed to continuing to make these opportunities for children and youth available to our community.

YOUR support is especially critical this year, while we develop innovative ways to engage children and youth in the arts.
