We make community involvement easy
Alberta's Promise helps businesses give back to their community, strategically and creatively. We connect businesses with non-profits across Alberta to make meaningful contributions that benefit children and youth ages 0 to 24. We work closely with businesses to find community involvement opportunities aligned with business goals and values, make the connections and facilitate partnerships with local non-profits that serve kids, and boost brand visibility through employee communications, media, and events. Our Community Involvement Toolkit for Business guides businesses through the steps of creating a strategic community involvement plan.
While we do not raise funds, we inspire all sectors of the economy to support programs and services for kids, whether through financial gifts, volunteer hours, or in-kind donations.
Alberta's Promise operates within the Government of Alberta department of Human Services. Our work supports Five Promises: five developmental areas that help kids succeed.
Founded in 2003 as a first priority of the provincial government, Alberta's Promise is supported by our Premier's Council members. These individuals are business and community leaders appointed by the Premier of Alberta to act as ambassadors for the organization. We are also supported by over 1,800 business, non-profit, and community partners from all regions of the province.
The Five Promises we support
The Five Promises are at the heart of all we do.
Together with our partners, we are committed to supporting
five key developmental building blocks needed by children to reach
their full potential in school, work and community.
"I promise to nurture the growth and well-being of children in their early years and to support parents."
"I promise to provide support and guidance to children and youth through mentoring, coaching and volunteering."
"I promise to provide safe, caring communities in which children and youth can grow."
"I promise to inspire a passion for learning and skill development throughout life; in the classroom, in the workplace, in the community."
