Make a Personal Donation Today

You can make an individual personal donation to Distress Centre Calgary to provide 24/7 crisis support to youth, adults, and families in need. Your one-time contribution can make a difference.

Become a Monthly Donor

We know that donating is meaningful to you, and you want to take part in shaping Calgary’s communities in a positive and sustainable way. When you donate to Distress Centre on a monthly basis, you’re helping us provide mental health and wellness support to you, your family, and your neighbours whenever it is needed.

Becoming a monthly donor means you are creating an impact every month with a monetary gift that generates meaningful difference throughout the year.

Your donations directly support the 144,000 connections Distress Centre responds to annually across Southern Alberta.

Donate in Memory or in Honour

Whether you’re looking for a meaningful way to honour a loved one or searching for a unique gift idea, donating in memory or in honour of someone can be a wonderful gesture.

By making a donation in someone’s memory, you can pay tribute to their life while supporting a cause that aims to improve the mental well-being of Calgarians. It’s a thoughtful way to remember a loved one and contribute to a cause they may have cared deeply about.

Generous individuals contributing through this form will be sent a heartfelt e-card. This thoughtful gesture can be shared with the person they are honouring through their donation or with the family members of the individual they are remembering. The design of the e-card will be tailored to the chosen type of donation.

Opportunities to Help

Our volunteer opportunities allow you to provide support in various ways, including over the phone and via chat, text, or email. We also provide extensive practical and ongoing training.

As Calgary’s only 24-hour crisis agency, we are often the first point of contact for those seeking help. Make a career out of making a difference!

Distress Centre is committed to furthering the field of social work, and we view practicum students as a great asset to our team.  Practicum opportunities exist year-round within the Crisis Line Program and Counselling Program, along with other opportunities.
