8) Gift-In-Kind Donations
We are happy to accept new household and clothing donations to help our clients restart their lives. Please review our Gift-In-Kind Wish List.
Unfortunately, as of October 1, 2007, we no longer accept donations of used household items and clothing. The collection of used items is taxing on the organization’s internal resources due to limited staffing, health and hygiene issues and the costs associated with sorting, distributing and storing items.
YWCA of Calgary is a registered Canadian charity #108227927 RR0001. We issue tax receipts automatically for donations of $20 or more. Tax receipts will be issued within four to six weeks after the donation has been received and processed by the YWCA. Monthly donations are receipted annually.
