Since its inception back in 2015, the mission of the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation has been to support initiatives that bring positive change to the lives of Albertans.
The five central pillars of the Foundation are Education, Health & Wellness, Amateur & Grassroots Sport, Community, and Agriculture, and funds are raised throughout the year for these key areas.
We are proud of the fact that we support a broad range of initiatives from helping to stop childhood hunger, to families requiring emergency assistance, to education of our youths. We are also committed to helping smaller local charitable organizations that may not be able to receive the funds and attention otherwise.
As resilient as Albertans are, in the last year we have seen an increased need for help due to higher levels of food insecurity, poverty, poor mental health, lack of community-based social services, higher rates of homelessness, greater vulnerability of first responders and frontline workers. The Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation will continue to work with organizations that support the most vulnerable members of our communities and make such an incredible impact on the world around us.
Thank you Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation for your generosity to Distress Centre Calgary and for helping Calgarians in a time when they need it most. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
