Get to know Alberta's Promise

See Alberta's Promise through Riley's eyes and
find out how we connect givers and doers across Alberta.


We will inspire and encourage businesses, agencies, communities and individuals to partner together and adopt the Alberta's Promise commitment to children and youth.



Together we will make Alberta the best place in the world to raise our children and youth.



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.

Our organization

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.

For more information, read our FAQ or Contact Us to learn more about our no-fee partnership and marketing services.


We couldn't do it alone

Alberta's Promise is supported by partner organizations, community leaders

appointed to the Premier's Council, and a team of dedicated staff.

Our Little Red Wagon

You may have seen our Little Red Wagon and wondered
what it is all about. When Alberta's Promise partners
proudly display their wagon, it means that they
are committed to keeping the Five Promises
and are dedicated to working together to
benefit Alberta's kids.

Creating and supporting positive outcomes for children and youth in Alberta has always been the cornerstone of Alberta's Promise. Since 2003, the Little Red Wagon has been the symbol of our organization representing our commitment
to children and youth.

The Little Red Wagon is a symbol of childhood, a helpful means for pulling the occasionally heavy load of life and a place to keep dreams, with a handle so an adult can help out from time to time.
