Give the Gift of Literacy!
As a charity, we depend on the generosity of like-minded individuals and organizations to aid us in bringing our valuable programing to students. Please consider making a donation so we may continue our work for Alberta's children. Whether it's through a one-time gift or an authorized monthly donation, you can make a difference to thousands of children all across Alberta.
How will my donation make a difference?
Your donation will support children's literacy programs in Alberta. YABS inspires children to read and write by sending Alberta children's book authors and illustrators into classrooms and libraries to spark their imaginations and get them excited about literacy. Why is literacy so important? Strong literacy skills provide a solid foundation for lifelong learning. Low literacy levels are linked to poverty, crime, poor health, unemployment and low quality of life. Alberta's children deserve a bring future. With your donation, YABS will continue to help Alberta's children and youth on the path to learning and success.
Your donation also supports Alberta's children's literary arts.YABS also supports and promotes Alberta authors, illustrators and storytellers through our online artist directory, educational workshops/seminars, literary arts festival, literacy programs and booking/referral program. There is also the ever growing Alberta Collection which serves as both an archive of Albertan artists and as a lending library available to educators, student teachers, and student librarians.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes. YABS is a registered charity so you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. If you are resident of Alberta you can get a larger tax refund on your donation thanks to the Community Spirit Program introduced by the Alberta Government in 2008. Including the federal tax credit, Albertans will now receive a 50-cent non-refundable tax credit for every dollar donated over $200.
