Monetary Support

Direct Donations

The Canmore Public Library gratefully accepts your financial contributions. We have many ways of contributing to the Library, large and small. We are happy to accept cash or cheque donations throughout the year and will provide a tax receipt for any direct donations made to the Library. 
We are also happy to accept donations to the Library via ATB cares. 

ATB will match 15% of every dollar donated to Alberta-based, non-religious charities through this site, up to $20,000 per month and $240,000 per fiscal year. Each eligible charity may receive up to $5,000 of matching per year. Individual donations qualify for a maximum donation match of $1,000.

Not sure if our matching dollars are in effect? Look for a banner that says "MATCHING OFFER" on the right hand side of charity profile page.
