Support Assist by Donating
Assist receives the majority of its funding from the Law Society of Alberta. However, this funding is not designed to cover all of our operations. We are required to obtain support from Alberta lawyers, law firms and others to assist us with our proactive programs.
Assist is a charitable organization for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), registration number 8766 20502 RR0001. This means that we can issue charitable deduction receipt for donations you make.
2020 has been a challenging year for Assist as we moved to providing programs and resources online and developing content relevant to communities in lockdown. We deferred our remaining fundraising initiatives from the spring of 2020 but now must seek to make up budget shortfalls. We are very grateful to individuals and firms who choose to support us with donations.

We appreciate the in-kind donation of office space made to us by JSS Barristers (please note that we do not see anyone accessing Assist's services in our offices). We also receive in-kind support for mailings, brochure printing, computer support, financial review and our website. Please click here if you would like to make an in-kind donation.
Occasionally we seek sponsors for events run by Assist and we feature the names of sponsors on our materials. We can only issue a charitable deduction receipt if we can calculate the value of the sponsorship and we deduct the value of the advantage flowing to the sponsor in accordance with tax case law and the rules and policies of the Canada Revenue Agency.
