About Us

As a team the Calgary Stampede and the Calgary Stampede Foundation have a strong commitment to developing the potential of the young people in our community, providing them with the means to become spirited citizens with strong roots in western heritage and values.

The Calgary Stampede Foundation (the "Foundation") was established in 1994 as a charitable organization to generate income for the development of youth of Southern Alberta. In particular, the Foundation supports The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts, the Calgary Stampede Showband, Stampede School and 4-H on Parade.

Donors receive the maximum tax benefit based on current CRA rules and regulations, and donations are managed in perpetuity.
