Ways to donate

Numerous, groundbreaking programs and initiatives at CFIS
were developed through donor, volunteer and in-kind support. 

Giving is a very personal decision. Calgary French & International School donors impact the school in many ways, and often align themselves with specific projects or programs that are personally inspirational to them or their children. 

We ask that you consider becoming a donor with a gift to our general fund or designated to one of these current priorities:

  • Marcel Tremblay Learning Resource Centre
  • Awards & Scholarships - consider contributing to one of our existing awards/scholarships or create a legacy by establishing a new one.
  • Outdoor Classroom & Amphitheatre

There are numerous methods to make a donation to the school. 

Cash or cheque

An outright gift of over $20, with no conditions, qualifies for a charitable tax receipt. 

Credit card

When we have a specific event, such as the musical or gala, our MyCFIS forms may have an option to donate by credit card. 

Legacy giving

Your legacy to CFIS is important. Leaving a gift to CFIS in your will or life insurance policy are just a few examples of the gift donations you can contribute that will attribute your name as part of the school’s history. By donating your gift to CFIS, you and / or your loved ones’ contribution will be remembered for years to come. We can help you achieve your philanthropic goals and maximize your income tax savings. By making a planned gift and telling us about it, you allow CFIS to celebrate your legacy while you are still with us.


Donations to CFIS do not always need to come in the form of direct money. You can also donate products and services that would be useful to CFIS. In-kind products can be tax receipted at fair market value. In-kind services cannot be tax receipted. 

Leverage your gift

Corporate matching

Many employers offer their employees a corporate matching gift program. If you make a gift to CFIS and your company has a matching gift program, all you usually need to do is notify your employer that you have made a gift and to what amount and they will send an additional gift to our campaign. There are approximately 200 companies in Calgary that offer matching gift programs so check with yours to see if this option is available.
