Make a difference in the life of a child

You can make a difference in many ways. Whether it be the gift of volunteering your time, a donation of cash or assets, in-kind products or services, or simply sharing our story with others.


Volunteer your time

The gift of your time can have a life-long impact. Children and youth are hungry for someone to give them attention and show them caring. We’re looking for volunteers 18-80+ who have time and talents to share and who value children and youth. Join our team.


Financial Donation

Opportunity changes everything. Your financial donation creates opportunities for children and youth to discover their potential. Funds donated to Youth HQ support the many programs and services we offer. If you are wanting a charitable receipt for an in-person donation, cheques must be made out to either BGC of Red Deer & District or Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer & District.


Donate your recyclables

You can dispose of empty cans and bottles and support kids at the same time. Simply arrange anytime for your empties to be picked up.

It is not necessary to let us know in advance that you have made these plans.
We encourage you to discuss proposed planned/legacy gifts with an independent financial planner, legal advisor and/or tax advisor to ensure that you receive a full and accurate explanation of all aspects of a proposed charitable gift.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

A donation of stocks, securities or mutual fund shares is an efficient way to give charitably and receive tax credit.

When you donate your securities directly to Youth HQ, capital gains aren’t subject to tax. We receive a larger gift, and you benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of your eligible securities or mutual funds.

We work with SERVUS Credit Union and Canada Helps to receive gifts of securities.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Consider designating Youth HQ as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or a beneficiary of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP).

To include us as a beneficiary of your RRSP, we recommend you speak to your financial advisor.  You will need to:

  1.  Request an RRSP Multiple Beneficiary Designation from your financial advisor.
  2.  Complete the designation form, naming us as one of the beneficiaries.
  3.  Return the form to your financial advisor, and they will update your plan appropriately. 

To designate us as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, contact your insurance provider and name us as a beneficiary.

If you wish to acknowledge your intent to give a gift upon passing without sharing the amount of the gift or entering into a formal contract with a financial advisor, Youth HQ will acknowledge the promise and recognize you as a donor.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
