All online Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!donations to Elves are accepted through Canada Helps and ATB Cares.

As a non-profit, charitable organization Elves  is tremendously grateful for the financial and in-kind contributions of all our donors. 100% of funds raised go directly towards the creation of highly specialized environments for our learners.


Where Will My Donation Go?

  • Facility Expansion – Currently, Elves is at capacity for how many learners we can serve in our 3 available facilities, and is seeking donations for facility expansion so that we can continue to meet the needs of the growing Edmonton community.
  • Elves’ Food Bank – Many learners attending Elves’ School do not always have a lunch or adequate snacks available to sustain their learning throughout the day. As Elves serves a diverse population, parents/caregivers may not be able to afford to send food with their child each day due to a loss of employment, or change in living situation.
  • In Memory of or in Recognition of a Special Occasion – You can make a donation in honour of an individual who has passed away, or for a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.
  • Specialized Equipment – Our learners require specialized equipment to support their abilities such as walkers, standing frames, hydraulic lifts, and augmentative communication devices.

Please Note: Undesignated donations will be directed to where it is most needed.

Elves has partnered with Donate A Car Canada to accept vehicle donations for the Society. Donate a Car Canada provides free towing in many areas across Canada, or you may also drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation.

When you donate your RV, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle to Elves through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age, and location. Donate A Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for Elves to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, the Society will send you a tax receipt.
