SPAR Donation Fund Program

The Ministry of Tourism and Sport administers the Donation Fund Program. The Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation (SPAR) Donation Fund Program encourages support for the development of sport, physical activity and recreation in Alberta. The program gives individual and corporate donors an opportunity for a tax incentive to invest in the future of the sector and a process for the acceptance of contributions from charitable organizations.

Understanding the unconditional nature of a donation, donors may suggest support of eligible sport, physical activity and recreation development programs. This includes support for the development of athletes, coaches, officials, instructors, leaders, volunteers, programs, facilities and events.

The full amount of each donation or contribution goes directly to the support of sport, physical activity or recreation development programs in Alberta, without any administrative fees.
