How to Give

The Community Foundation offers a full range of planned gift-giving options. Establishing a fund is simple and often provides significant tax benefits.

 Donate Online

Online donations may now be made directly to funds held by the Drayton Valley Community Foundation. Our online system provides a safe and secure environment through which donors may make a donation. Simply click on the Donate button that appears at the top of each web page. This will open the online donation system. You can click “on-time contribution, monthly contribution or in memory.” In the Comment box you can indicate which fund you would like your donation designated too. You will then be prompted through the rest of the donation process. Receipts for donations of $20 or more will be provided. Donors who make monthly donations will receive a receipt for the full amount at the end of the year.

Standard United Way administration fees will be deducted from the gift before it is transferred to us. Our email is
