ATB Cares is an easy-to-use “cause-of-choice” website that enables Albertans to donate to the charities that are important to them. Once officially registered with the Canadian Revenue Agency, charities are automatically included on atbcares.com.
Check out our Fact Sheet for additional program details
ATB matches 20% of all donations through atbcares.com made to Alberta-based, non-religious charities (up to a maximum of $500 in matching per donation and while the $30,000 monthly matching budget is still available) and issues automatic tax receipts to donors (through the Canadian Online Giving Foundation).
Our partners Benevity and the Canadian Online Giving Foundation support with the administration involved with ATB Cares such as but not limited to the processing and disbursement of donations, issuing of tax receipts, preparing donor reports, etc., and for these services and the use of their software, a fee of no more than 2.9% (up to a maximum of $250) per donation plus applicable merchant fees will apply and be netted from the donated amount before being received by the charity.
Please note that ATB Cares operates within the UTC time zone (University Time Coordinated). MST (Alberta) is UTC - 7:00, meaning donations made after 4:59:59 pm MST (6:59:59 EST) will be timestamped for the following day. Please keep this in mind if the specific date is relevant to your charitable tax receipt.
