The Season of Giving with the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation

The Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation is the official charitable arm of Spruce Meadows. Committed to supporting education, health, community, amateur and grassroots sports, the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation has donated more than $650,000 over the last 5 years to a variety of charitable groups including the Calgary Food Bank, Children’s Grief Centre, Calgary Reads, Kids Up Front, and more.
So far this year, the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation, together with Gibson Energy, has contributed over $50,000 to mental health by supporting such organizations as the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter and the Distress Centre Calgary.
For the remainder of 2020, the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation will turn its attention to the Calgary and Area Rural Food Banks. The Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation is joining forces with MARKT. by Spruce Meadows—the new year-round online shopping platform that in its first chapter will play host to the 2020 edition of the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS.
Through MARKT. by Spruce Meadows, the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation is selling masks, candles, and sets of blank greeting cards that feature the work of a local artist Jody Skinner. All proceeds from these items will be donated to the Calgary and Area Rural Food Banks.
You can also donate directly here. Donations are eligible for a tax receipt and will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 by Spruce Meadows.
“The Board of Directors and Members of the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation would like to thank all our supporters for our great success over the past five years. Thank YOU!!! We are so proud and committed to be supporting our local community.” - Mike Colborne, Chairman, Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation
