Donating to the Park
- The DRCA has partnered with Parks Foundation Calgary (PFC), a not-for-profit organization to administer donations towards the completion (Phase 2 and 3) of the Discovery Ridge Recreation Facility.
- Your donations of $25 or greater towards the recreation facility will be eligible for a tax receipt as a charitable donation.
- Albertans will now receive a 50-cent tax credit for every dollar donated over the $200 threshold – one of the highest rates in Canada. The enhanced tax credit applies to donations made since January 1, 2007. This means a donation of $500 equates to a total tax credit of $200
- Your donation will be recognized in our printed community newsletter, the Ridge Review, as well as on our website. In addition, different sponsorship levels will be recognized as set forth below (some levels have limited availability – please contact email@example.com):

Save your bottles!
Bag returnable bottles and cartons and drop them at the “Discovery Ridge Bottle Drop” shed located at the soccer field parking lot, across from the Cornerstone stores. The concept here is to provide a service to the community making it easy for everyone to get rid of your bottles AND contribute to the recreational facilities at the same time. A true win/win scenario! REMEMBER all bottles must be in bags, then dropped in the shed. Thank you!
Volunteer – it doesn’t have to mean long hours
We need the time and voice of the village, and that means involvement from you! Sometimes we need ideas, sometimes we need an hour or two of your time, and if you are keen, we also need committee members for regular support. Please contact us today to sign up for volunteer activities (firstname.lastname@example.org).
